    The Tour de France 2017 race route in Google Maps/Google EarthAs usual, velowire.com allows you to discover in detail the race route of this 104th edition of the Grande Boucle, on Google Maps/Google Earth at one week before the start of the Tour de France 2017.

    With the informations from this article you'll know all the tiny details, all cities and villages the Tour will visit and you'll thus be able to prepare your trip to the race if you're one of the 12 million spectators on the side of the road, or simply be able to follow the race in a better way if you're not!

    Some information first ...

    Here is some additonal information you need to know before we get into detail about the different stages of the Tour de France 2017:
    - as for any contents on velowire.com, its reproduction in any form is strictly forbidden, as explained on the copyright page. Please respect the huge amount of time it takes me to produce contents like these!
    - the stage profiles have been generated automatically based on altitude information known for the different locations where the stage comes by; there can thus be some incorrect information at some places, but the general profile is still the right one!
    - at the moment these maps were being prepared, the Tour de France 2017 roadbook had not been provided to the press yet and all detailed information about the stages (start, feeding zone, finish, ...) are not available on the official website of the race; the information provided here should however be correct anyway since I based it on information I obtained in another way!

    The programme of the Grand start of the Tour de France 2017

    Here are the dates to remember for this Grand start of the Tour de France 2017:

    1/ Saturday 1st July 2017 - Düsseldorf (DE) > Düsseldorf (DE) - individual time trial - 14 km

    This first stage of the Tour de France 2017 will start in the Stockumer Kirchstraße in Düsseldorf, in front of the Messe. The riders will go off towards the city center of Düsseldorf but they'll first cross the Rhine. Back on the other side of the Rhine they'll get in the city center where they'll find the intermediate timing point in the Königsallee. A bit further, they get back on the same road as on the way down there in order to get back towards the Messe and cross the finish line which will be drawn in the Rotterdamer Straße in Düsseldorf.

    4/ Tuesday 4 July 2017 - Mondorf-les-Bains (LU) > Vittel - 207,5 km

    The 4th stage of the Tour de France 2017 will start just on the other side of the border, in Mondorf-les-Bains in Luxembourg and after having visited Schengen, famous for the treaty which was signed there, the peloton continues its trip to the south during this stage, getting around Metz and Nancy and going on towards Vittel, the thermal city which gives its name to one of the main partners of the Tour.

    After a short non referenced climb after about fifty kilometers in the race, only one officially referenced difficulty will be on the race route, the Col des Trois Fontaines, but 37 kilometers from the finish this should not prevent the sprinters from winning this stage!

    5/ Wednesday 5 July 2017 - Vittel > La Planche des Belles Filles - 160,5 km

    During the 5th stage of the Tour de France 2017 things will start getting serious because, at the start in the previous day's finish city, Vittel, the first half of the stage will be rather calm, but things will get more difficult in the second half with a climb of the 3rd category, but especially with the finish on top of the Planche-des-Belles-Filles, the 1st category climb which was opened for the first time in the Tour de France in 2012.

    6/ Thursday 6 July 2017 - Vesoul > Troyes - 216 km

    The 6th stage starting in Vesoul will stop the trip straight south for a short excursion westwards.

    The two short climbs the riders will find on their way will probably not prevent the sprinters to battle for victory at the finish in Troyes!

    7/ Friday 7 July 2017 - Troyes > Nuits-Saint-Georges - 213,5 km

    It's as if we went back on our steps with this short sidetrip to Troyes because the next day the race continues towards Nuit-Saint-Georges, at less than 130 kilometers as the crow flies from Vesoul.

    Normally this would again be a sprinters stage but the organisor of the Tour mentions a final circuit of 40 kilometers which could expose the peloton to side winds which certain teams perfectly know how to use. Actually, there's no circuit which would make one think of two crossings of the finish line for example but just a detour around the finish city.

    8/ Saturday 8 July 2017 - Dole > Station des Rousses - 187,5 km

    Station des RoussesThe 8th stage will start in Dole and will be a stage which will 100% take place in the Jura.

    The Jura massive offers the riders several difficulties in this stage and it'll most probably thus be a strong rider who will win the stage in a solo escape or a small breakaway group at the finish in the Station des Rousses which the Tour de France visited for the last time in 2010. Will we see the painting which was realised at that occasion and which you can see in the photo next to this text when it was being realised? (click on it to see a bigger version of it)

    9/ Sunday 9 July 2017 - Nantua > Chambéry - 181,5 km

    Still in the Jura and going off towards the Alps, the start of this 9th stage will be in Nantua close to its famous lake. It'll be the first time that Nantua receives the Tour de France. This is not the case for Chambéry where the Tour had a stage start in 1996 and another one in 2010. In 2017 it'll be for a stage finish that the race goes off towards the base camp of the AG2R La Mondiale team.

    It'll be quite a mountaineous stage with the climb of the Côte des Neyrolles rapidly after the start in Nantua, the Col de la Biche (Croix de Famban) about fifty kilometers further, immediately followed by the ckimb of the most difficult side of the Grand Colombier. Before they arrive in Chambéry, the riders will still have the Mont du Chat to climb, a difficult climb which had only once before been part of the Tour de France race route (in 1974!). From there, the riders will go down towards Le Bourget-du-Lac and finally a bit over 12 kilometers towards the finish line in Chambéry.

    R1/ Monday 10 July 2017 - rest day in the Dordogne department

    After this stage finish in Chambéry, the riders will enjoy the first rest day of this Tour de France 2017 in Dordogne the next day, while the followers will drive all the kilometers to get there ...

    10/ Tuesday 11 July 2017 - Périgueux > Bergerac - 178 km

    The day after the first rest day, the start will take place in Périgueux. Already 3 times visited by the Tour previously, the city of Périgueux will for the first time see the Tour de France for a stage in line instead of a time trial as was previously the case.

    It'll most probably be a sprint which will finish off the stage 178 kilometers further, in Bergerac, after having visited Montignac and the replica of the Lascaux cave.

    Another transition stage for the sprinters before the Pyrenees show up, and it'll take place between Eymet, a small town in the Dordogne of 3,500 inhabitants which will see the Tour for the first time, and Pau, must more used to see the Tour de France because the city in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques will be for the 69th time on the map of the Tour de France in 2017!!

    12/ Thursday 13 July 2017 - Pau > Peyragudes - 214,5 km

    Pau will also be the start city of the 12th stage, as it's often the case, and this time that'll be for a 214.5 kilometers long stage, the first Pyrenean stage and also the longest stage in the Pyrenees of this 104th Tour towards the station of Peyragudes.

    Even though the first half of the stage is relatively simple, it is halfway that things start get more complicated, with the climb of the Col des Ares followed a bit further by the Col de Menté anf closer to the finish by the climb of the Port de Balès. We'll already be at 30 kilometers from the finish at that time, and those are downhill over 16 kilometers followed by the 9.7 kilometers of the climb of the Col de Peyresourde, a short descent of a bit over 2 kilometers and the final climb towards Peyragudes over 2.4 km .

    The finish will be for the first time in the history of the Tour at the unique altiport of the Pyrenees, which the riders get onto via a last kilometer which contains a part at 16% over 200 meters!

    13/ Friday 14 July 2017 - Saint-Girons > Foix - 101 km

    The 13th stage of the Tour de France 2017 which will take place on Friday 14 July, National bank holiday in France, is extremely short, with its 101 kilometers it'll be the shortest stage in line of this Tour, even shorter than the last one which finishes in Paris!

    That doesn't mean however that it'll be an easy stage, because between the start in Foix and the finish in Saint-Girons, it'll be animated by 3 difficulties with some very difficult parts. These will be the Col de Latrape, the Col d'Agnes and finally the Mur de Péguère which pretty well respects its new name ("mur" for "wall") which A.S.O. gave it during the last visit of the Tour in 2012 with its steepness going up to 18%!

    15/ Sunday 16 July 2017 - Laissac-Sévérac l'Eglise > Le Puy-en-Velay - 189,5 km

    In the village of Laissac, with only 2,100 habitants, the venue of the Tour will be a big event because never before the Grande Boucle went here and the village is mostly known for mountain biking.

    Crossing the Aubrac heights, the riders will climb the Montée de Naves d'Aubrac and stay on the heights above 1000 meters altitude for about one hundred kilometers before they get back down, towards the foot of the Col de Peyra Taillade which contains a part going up to 14% and which was never before part of the Tour de France. The riders will then descend towards Le Puy-en-Velay where a breakaway could stay ahead for the stage victory!

    16/ Tuesday 18 July 2017 - Le Puy-en-Velay > Romans-sur-Isère - 165 km

    After the rest day, the start of this 16th stage will also take place in Le Puy-en-Velay. This will be a stage towards Romans-sur-Isère in which everything is possible if we believe the comments from Christian Prudhomme, the director of the Tour de France, since he wrote: The roads of the day are perfectly known by the amateur riders of the Ardéchoise cyclosportive, with a topography that could give confidence to breakaway riders. But finishes in the Rhône Valley often end up with bunched sprints ... unless the wind plays a role..

    From La Mure, a never before visited stage city in the Tour de France, we finally really get into the Alps for a stage with no less than 4 difficulties.

    Indeed, it all starts with the climb of the Col d'Ornon, followed a bit further by the Col de la Croix de Fer and after a bit in the valley via Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne, they'll start the climb of the Col du Télégraphe which will continue in the climb of the Col du Galibier.

    20/ Saturday 22 July 2017 - Marseille > Marseille - individual time trial - 22,5 km

    The forelast stage of the Tour de France 2017 will completely take place in the streets of Marseille where the start and the finish of this solitary test will both take place in the Orange Vélodrome, the stadium of Olympique Marseille which recently changed its name thanks to a sponsoring by Orange, which is also one of the sponsors of the Tour.

    In 2017, Marseille will be the European capital of sports and this time trial is thus part of it, even though it obliges the followers of the Tour to travel a huge distance in order to get back close to Paris, in a weekend where the holidays start.

    The race route will be relatively flat, the riders will just have to climb a bit at the Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde where we'll also find one of the two intermediate timing points (the other one will be at the Palais du Pharo just before the riders visit the Vieux Port).

  1. Bonjour à tous !
    Bravo à Thomas pour tout le travail que représente l'écriture de cet article et merci pour cette mine d'informations !
    Petite remarque : le parcours du contre-la-montre de Marseille me semble quelque peu alambiqué, la volonté des organisateurs de faire faire un demi-tour après que les coureurs ont longé les rives du Vieux Port m'a l'air un peu tirée par les cheveux. Espérons qu'il fera sec et qu'il n'y aura pas de casse.
    N'empêche qu'on remarque la même chose sur le détour jusqu'à Bonneveine, est-ce pour une raison sportive, touristique ou logistique particulière, à votre avis ?
    Toujours est-il que cela permet d'avoir une distance convenable pour un contre-la-montre qui ne fera pas d'écart significatif quoiqu'il peut modifier certains accessits.

  6. Bonjour

    Un grand merci pour ce boulot. Ca va nous être utile pour préparer notre prochain trip !

    Pour info, l'arrivée à Liège de l'étape de dimanche a été modifiée et se fera sur le quai des Ardennes (n°4). C'est plus ou moins 2 km avant l'arrivée que tu renseignes (et qui était prévue).

    Salutations !

  7. Bonjour,
    Bravo pour le travail que je consulte tous les ans.
    Je me suis lancé dans la même tâche fastidieuse depuis plusieurs semaines(http://cartotour.romain-marrast.net), et il est intéressant de voir les différences que l'on a sur nos parcours.
    Par contre, avez-vous fait un partenariat avec France Bleu ? Car ceux-ci semblent avoir le même parcours que vous au mètre près, sans pour autant vous citer en référence.

  8. Fantastic work, Thomas. You are at the top of Google listings for "Tour de France" and "kmz." And with good reason! Thank you for sharing this.
