    The programme of the Grand start of the Tour de France 2018

    Here are the dates to keep in mind for the Grand start of the Tour de France 2018:
    • Wednesday 4 July 2018: inauguration of the "permanence" at the Vendéspace (Dojo) and the press room at the Vendéspace (salle sportive) in Mouilleron-le-Captif
    • Thursday 5 July 2018 between 6.30PM and 8PM: teams presentation for the Tour de France 2018 on the Place Napoléon in La Roche-sur-Yon: after the general briefing which will take place at 5.30PM at Le Grand R (not accessible for the general public), the riders will do a short bike which will first bring them to the place Napoléon. That's where they'll find the podium where they will be presented to the public one by one. The riders will get back on their bikes and go on to the place de la Vendée from where they'll continue to the boulevard des États-Unis where the ride will end in front of the Haras de la Vendée:

    The Tour de France 2018 race route on Google Maps

    Let's now discover the details of the Tour de France 2018 race route, stage by stage:

    1/ Saturday 7 July 2018 - Noirmoutier-en-l'Île > Fontenay-le-Comte - 201 km

    The first stage of the Tour de France 2018 will have a completely flat race route, the Côte de Vix of the 4th category being the only difficulty of the day.

    This first stage of the Tour de France 2018 will start on the Place de l'Ancien Moulin à Eau in Noirmoutier-en-l'Île. Contrary to what was initially planned, the race will not go over the Passage du Gois, simply because with the one week delay for the start of the Tour, this route will be under water. The riders will thus use the Pont de Noirmoutier towards Fromentine and La Barre-de-Monts to get on land. The kilometer zero will be even before they get there and the riders will follow the coast down to Les Sables-d'Olonne and the feeding zone in Saint-Vincent-sur-Jard, rapidly followed by the intermediate sprint of this stage, in La Tranche-sur-Mer. They'll then go a little bit more landinwards going east via Saint-Michel-en-l'Herm and Chaillé-les-Marais before they'll get on the only difficulty of the day. Just afterwards they'll discover something new created for this Tour de France, the bonus sprint: as we can read in race regulations of the Tour de France 2018 (scroll down to page 21 for the English version), 3, 2 and 1 seconds shall be awarded to the first three riders at the Bonus Point in each of the first nine stages (except for the stage 3 team time trial). This shall have no effect on the points classification.

    The very first Bonus Point will be in Maillezais in the Rue du Champ de Foire. After that, the riders will continue north towards Fontenay-le-Comte where they'll cross the finish line on the Boulevard Duguesclin close to the Place de l'Ouillette.

    The 4th stage of the Tour de France 2018 will start in La Baule on the sea side and will cross the Parc Naturel Régional de Brière (a natural park). It'll again be a flat race route, with only difficulty, the Côte de Saint-Jean-la-Poterie.

    Before they get there, the riders will have went off east down to Derval where they'll find the intermediate sprint and their trip to the west start with the feeding zone in the same city. After the climb they'll get to the Bonus Point in Limerzel, on their road towards the finish in Sarzeau.

    5/ Wednesday 11 July 2018 - Lorient > Quimper - 204.5 km

    This 5th stage of the Tour de France 2018 will be a bit different from the others, because the second part of it contains a succession of short but difficult climbs which will animate the final part of the stage. From a geographical point of view, after having followed the coast line up to Concarneau, the race goes landinwards, to go find these famous climbs after the sprint in Roudouallec and the feeding zone just afterwards. The finish will also be uphill and it's thus most probably that this stage will be won by a puncher.

    7/ Friday 13 July 2018 - Fougères > Chartres - 231 km

    The 7th stage does not present any notable difficulties between Fougères and Chartres, except maybe for the distance because with its 231 kilometers this will be the longest stage of this Tour de France 2018!

    8/ Saturday 14 July 2018 - Dreux > Amiens - 181 km

    The 8th stage of the Tour de France 2018 will allow the race to start its way up north. Indeed, starting in Dreux the race goes straight north up to Andelys, before it slightly changes direction, going north-east up to the finish in Amiens. The two small 4th category climbs in the first half of the stage will definitely not prevent the sprinters from taking the stage victory because the stage will probably end in a bunch sprint.

    The 9th stage of the Tour de France 2018 will bring back the cobble stones to the Tour race route, with a stage between the "citadelle" of Arras and the entrance of the "vélodrome" of Roubaix which will thus be some kind of a mini Paris-Roubaix with 21.7 kilometers of cobble stones, spread out over no less than 15 cobble stones sections, some of them being famous since they're part of the usual cobble stones race in April!

    After this stage finish in Roubaix, the riders can enjoy the first rest day of this Tour de France 2018 the next day in Annecy, while the followers of the race will drive all the kilometers down there ...

    10/ Tuesday 17 July 2018 - Annecy > Le Grand Bornand - 158.5 km

    The day after the first rest day the start will be in Annecy as well. The way to Le Grand Bornand could be quite short but the riders of the Tour will of course not follow the shortest way!

    Indeed, this will be the first mountain stage and one can see that with no less than 3 1st category climbs and one outside category climb, the Montée du plateau des Glières (6 km at 11.2%), which will be followed by a stone path of 1800 meters, something which hasn't been on the programme of the modern Tour de France ever!

    15/ Sunday 22 July 2018 - Millau > Carcassonne - 181.5 km

    The 15th stage will start in Millau, in the shadow of its famous viaduct. This stage will go south-west and will contain in the first half a 3rd category and a 2nd category climb but most importantly a 1st category climb in the second half, the Pic de Nore. The finish in Carcassonne will be flat but the field of contenders might thus reduce quite a lot in this last climb, even though its summit is at a bit over 40 kilometers from the finish.

    R2/ Monday 23 July 2018 - Carcassonne

    After this stage, the riders will get some rest in Carcassonne and will thus enjoy the second rest day without having to move to another location.

    16/ Tuesday 24 July 2018 - Carcassonne > Bagnères-de-Luchon - 218 km

    After the rest day, the start of this 16th stage will also be in Carcassonne. This stage will go off towards Bagnères-de-Luchon and will start easily with only two 4th category climbs in the first half of the stage. It will get harder in the second half however with a 2nd and two 1st category climbs before the descent towards the finish. This will be the only stage of this Tour de France 2018 which will briefly visit another country, over about twenty kilometers on the Spanish territory to be more precise!

    17/ Wednesday 25 July 2018 - Bagnères-de-Luchon > Saint-Lary-Soulan Col du Portet - 65 km

    The start of the 17th stage the next day will also be in Bagnères-de-Luchon. This stage will be a bit particular because it's extremely short, only 65 kilometers, and it will be completely animated around the 3 climbs which will make up the race route: right from the start in Bagnères, the riders will climb the Montée de Peyragudes (1st category, 14.9 km at 6.7%) and after the descent from Peyragudes, they'll immediately go on with the climb of the Col de Val Louron-Azet (1st category, 7.4 km at 8.3%) and the same goes for the final climb towards the finish in Saint-Lary-Soulan on top of the Col du Portet (HC, 16 km at 8.7%). Between the two first difficulties the riders will have to battle for the intermediate sprint in Loudenvielle, but -due to the short distance of this stage- there won't be any feeding zone in this stage.

    The start of this stage will be a bit particular. Indeed, the kilometer zero will be right at the start of the stage in the city Bagnères-de-Luchon (on a road which allows to leave the city directly). A warm-up zone for the riders will be created over a distance of 900 meters, to allow them to spin the legs before they start the three successive climbs. The last particular thing in this start is maybe the most remarkable one: it will take place in the same way as a start of a Formula 1 race, with the riders being in 5 start zones, according to their position in the general classification at the finish of the previous day's stage: from 1st to 20th, from 21st to 40th, from 41st to 80th, from 81st to 120th and from 121st to the last one. The whole peloton will however start at the same time, as soon as the traffic light on the start line will turn green!

    18/ Thursday 26 July 2018 - Trie-sur-Baïse > Pau - 171 km

    After this stage which is already a legendary stage on paper, a transition stage will be on the programme this Thursday 26 July in the Tour de France 2018. Indeed, starting in Trie-sur-Baïse, the riders will have 171 kilometers to ride up to the finish in Pau with only two 4th category climbs.

    19/ Friday 27 July 2018 - Lourdes > Laruns - 200,5 km

    Back in the Pyrenees for a mountain stage, we'll see a start in the city Lourdes for 200.5 kilometers. This stage will mainly be animated by the climb of 3 mythical mountains of the Tour: the Col d'Aspin (1st, 12 km at 6.5%), the Col du Tourmalet (HC, 17.1 km at 7.3%) and the Col d'Aubisque (HC, 16.6 km at 4.9%). The stage will end at the foot of the descent of the last mentioned mountain. For some time, the final part of this stage was at doubt due to the bad weather mid-June which led to a landslide which took away part of the road over a distance of 50 meters, but if all goes according to the current plan, the roadworks should be terminated before the stage gets there and there will thus be a completely new route!

    20/ Saturday 28 July 2018 - Saint-Pée-sur-Nivelle > Espelette - individual time trial - 31 km

    The forelast stage of the Tour de France 2018 will be an individual time trial in the Bask country, between Saint-Pée-sur-Nivelle, with the start, according to the Bask traditions, in front of the local "fronton", and Espelette, well known of its peppers. Even though no single difficulty is officially referenced for this stage, its race route will not be completely flat however. Indeed, at 3 kilometers from the finish for example, the riders will climb the Col de Pinodieta (900 m at 10.2%) during their solo effort, which could well prevent some riders to end in a good time and thus maybe bring some changes in the general classification if the gaps are sufficiently small!

From Houilles, the riders will first go off to the west via Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Poissy and Chavenay, and then turn east towards Paris via Saint-Cloud and the Bois de Boulogne to enter Paris at the Porte Maillot where the race route of this Tour de France was presented in October last year in the Palais des Congrès!

  2. Bonjour,
    J'aurai voulu savoir si vous aviez la liste des hôtels où dorment les équipe pour la journée de repos à Carcassonne. L'année dernière vous aviez pu me renseigner à ce sujet et ça m'avait bien aidé pour rencontrer les coureurs à la journée de repos au Puy en Velay.
    J'espère que vous pourrez m'aider
    Merci d'avance

  6. Bonjour je suis en train de suivre la première étape du tour de fra&#768;ce que j,adore mais le petit couac c,est que je vois toujours les coureurs balancer leurs bidons ou dechets sur les bords de la route . A l'heure actuelle ou on arrête pas de parler de pollution parce que même si c,est ramassé de suite il s en oublier quand même. J était dans le cantal quand il est passé il y a deux ou trois ans je peut vous dire c est pas tres propre et il en reste pas mal mal dans les fossés. .. a plus et bon tour

  9. Bonjour, rien à faire ! : erreurs dans les étapes 18 et 19 ! Cela passe, certes, en Google Earth, mais dès conversion en kml ou gpx, il y a des erreurs de points-trajets... j'essaie de résoudre et de trouver (exemple : point 1971 dans la 18ème étape) sinon, tout ok pour le restant ! Bravo,

  10. Bonjour Thomas, vous devriez laisser de côté l'API Google Maps, payant depuis le 16 juillet. Beaucoup de vos cartes ne s'affichent plus. En France la solution d'un choix de couches OSM/IGN avec leaflet paraît plus adaptée : voir geoservices.ign.fr
