    The Tour de France 2015 race route presented: a particular profile for the Grande BoucleToday, at 255 days from the start*, the race route of the Tour de France 2015, 102th edition of the Grande Boucle, was officially presented. Without a real surprise as it comes to the stage cities which had already been anounced in the rumours about the race route, the official announcement confirms the surprise as it comes to the general profile of the race.

    Very few kilometers of individual time trial, a first half on flat roads, a team time trial in the 9th stage (!), very few long stages and 10 days in the mountains to finish it all off are the elements which describe best this Tour ...
