The 2013 TdF route poses some interesting challenges for someone who would like to see the final mountain stages and finish. Not that we know of anyone who’s made a habit over the years of doing exactly that! First step is to visualize things, which I’ve done here, using information from the official LeTour.fr website.
TUESDAY, JULY 16TH – STAGE 16 168km Vaison-la-Romaine / Gap
WEDNESDAY, JULY 17TH – STAGE 17 32km Embrun / Chorges
SUNDAY, JULY 21ST – STAGE 21 118km Versailles / Paris Champs-Élysées
Some pretty funny stuff in there. A lot of it is actually serious stuff to pay attention to, some of is silly, and just a couple things I’d disagree with. I’d tone down the language slightly if I were writing it, so if you’ve got a G-rated household, you should probably avoid it (I’d rate it PG-13).
