  1. When can it be expected that the stage routes will be releaased for this race.

  2. Hi ronnie,

    This year, the organisation of this race published the stage routes only one week before the start of the race.

  3. This is most unhelpful for any potential visiting spectators. Surely the organisors must realise that without adequate planning and notice, spectators may become limited to just locals. And with the economics everywhere suffering surely they should be pushing the boat out to advertise and publish as much detail for the race as possible

  4. Completely agree with that! Many organisors are ignoring that.

    I think the same goes for the route maps provided by organisors actually. In my opinion flat maps shown as a simple image are useless nowadays, only interactive maps such as mine on Google Maps* allow to really know where the race goes. As an example, compare for example the official route map for Paris-Tours this year and my map of Paris-Tours 2011 (zoom in on the finish part and you'll understand why it's useful ;-).

    * those before July 1st, 2011 might not work anymore due to the change of the domain name of this website ; the KML files available in the articles will continue to work

  5. In 2011 the race financing was in doubt until very close to the start. The organisers did their very best, but in the end had to reduce from 5 to 3 days.
    The tour is confined to a fairly tight area,and it is easy to see all the sprints, climbs ,starts, finishes without traffic or crowd problems. As long as you know the dates, you can book your trip with confidence, get the race book from the start (usually San Pedro) and just enjoy some quick map reading to get to your chosen viewpoints. It is a great, less formal event which attracts many fo the big names - Armstong, Menchov, Contador etc etc. You can get right next to or even chat with the riders & staff before the starts

  6. Apparently the race has now been reduced to 2 days.

  8. Aghhh my frustration with the organisers of this race is beyond comparisson. And whilst I understand in the background they may be working feverishly to keep this event alive, how can they seriously expect to bring in much needed revenue when theyre keeping the race a bloody secret !
