    The Tour de France 2019 race route on Open Street Maps/Google Earth, stage profiles and time- and route schedulesNow we're getting closer to the start of the Tour de France 2019, as usual, velowire.com allows you to discover all the tiny details of the race route of the 106th edition of the Grande Boucle, with all the routes drawn on interactive maps with Open Street Maps/Google Earth.

    With the information available in this publication, you'll get to know all the routes, the visited cities and villages and it will thus allow you to prepare your visit of the race if you're among one of the 12 million people watching the race on the side of the road, or simply better understand the race if you're not one of these happy "few"!

    Some preliminary information ...

    Let's start with some elements you should take into account before you discover in detail all the stages of the Tour de France 2019:

    - as for any contents published on velowire.com, copying or in any other way reproducing these contents is strictly forbidden, as explained at the copyright page. Please respect these rights, if were it alone out of respect for the time it takes to prepare these contents!

    - the stage profiles have been generated automatically based on the altitude informations which are known for the places where the race comes by; it might thus be incorrect at some locations (especially for tunnels and so on), but the general profile is correct!

    - for now, the feeding zones of the Tour de France 2019 are not indicated on the maps or in the time- and route schedules; I'll try to see whether I'm able to add them in later on the feeding zones of the different stages have now been added on the maps; ATTENTION: it will be impossible and forbidden to park your car in these zones!!

    The programme of the Grand start of the Tour de France 2019

    Here are the dates and information to keep in mind for this Grand start of the Tour de France 2019:
    • Wednesday 3 July 2019: opening of the organisor's headquarters and the press center at Brussels Expo
    • Thursday 4 July 2019:

      - opening of the Fan Park from 2PM till 8PM - place de la Brouckère - free entry - with games stands, BMX shows, educational workshops and live broadcast on a big screen; some activities and games can allow you to win Tour de France goodies (the Fan Park will also be open on Friday and Saturday from 10AM till 7PM and on Sunday from 11AM till 6PM)

      - from 5.30PM till 7.15PM (free entry, see here for more information): Tour de France 2019 teams presentation on the Grand-Place, where Eddy Merckx got an ovation from the public which didn't fit on the characteristical place of the capital of Europe, in 1969 after his first out of 5 victories in the history of the Tour; this is also the place where the official start ceremony of the first stage will take place (the start location being upfront) and this place is thus indicated with a yellow flag on the Open Street Maps view further in this article.

      The presentation on the Grand-Place will be preceded by a bike ride from the Place Royale, close to the start location of the first stage on Saturday and of the start of the team time trial on Sunday, and after the presentation the bike ride goes on and will end close to the Fan Park on the Place de Brouckère. You can find all this information in the map below.

    The Tour de France 2019 race route on Open Street Maps

    Let's now no longer wait to discover all the details of the Tour de France 2019 race route, stage by stage:

    1/ Saturday 6 July 2019 - Brussels (BE) > Brussels (BE) - 194.5 km

    The first stage of the Tour de France 2019 will honour Eddy Merckx, 5 times winner of the Tour de France. Indeed, early in the stage the riders will, after the start from Brussels, visit Molenbeek-Saint-Jean and Anderlecht, two football clubs he loves while, on their way back to Brussels, Tervuren and Woluwe-Saint-Pierre will remind of the history of this big Belgian champion, who grew up in Woluwe but who also took his first Yellow Jersey of his career there, while he lived in Tervuren in 1969 ...

    Apart from that, the riders will find on their route during this stage the climb of the Mur de Grammont at km 43.5, and they will go on south till Charleroi before they'll get on one cobbled stones section, the Thiméon section (1,900 m long). They'll also have the very first intermediate sprint of the race in Les Bons Villers and will pass at the foot of the Butte du Lion (the battle field of Napoleon's forces in Waterloo) before going back north towards Brussels where the finish will be in the Avenue du Parc Royal.

    2/ Sunday 9 July 2019 - Brussels (BE) > Brussels (BE) - team time trial - 27.6 km

    This second stage of the Tour de France 2019 will be a team time trial, over a distance of 27.6 kilometers. The start will be in front of the Palais Royal in Brussels and the image at the finish of each team will show the famous Atomium, which was built for the Universal Exposition in 1958, in the background.

    While the victory of the first stage is most probably for a sprinter, who will thus have the occasion to wear the first Yellow Jersey of this year in which we celebrate it's 100 years of existance, it is well possible that the leader's jersey for the general classification will change shoulders after this second stage if that rider is not part of a team with good time trial riders who manage to win this timed race.

    Speaking of timing, there will be two intermediate timing points, at the Bois de la Cambre (Ter Kamerenbos) and at the Boulevard Léopold III.

    3/ Monday 8 July 2019 - Binche (BE) > Epernay - 215 km

    The 3rd stage will start in Belgium, and more precisely in Binche, which is better known of the Binche - Chimay - Binche cycling race and of the Mémorial Franck Vandenbroucke, which pays a tribute to the sulfurous Belgian rider. In this same city, Amaury Sport Organisation (A.S.O.), the organisor of the Tour, also organised the start of the Flèche Wallonne, in 2013 and 2017.

    From Binche, the riders will go south to cross the border with France, rather quickly after the start, in Jeumont (km 12). They'll be off for a long stage of 215 kilometers in total, towards Epernay, which is more used to receive the Tour de France for stage starts (for example in 2010/2012/2014) than for stage finishes (only one time before, in 1963, at that time for the very first stage of the race, coming from Nogent-sur-Marne). Midway of the stage, the riders will find the intermediate sprint of this stage, in Dizy-le-Gros.

    Before they get to Epernay, and after having visited the center of Reims, they'll still have 4 referenced climbs (because there are actually more but they are not all part of the King of the Mountains classifications) to do in the last 45 kilometers in the department Marne (Côte de Nanteuil-la-Forêt, Côte d'Hautvillers, Côte de Champillon and Côte de Mutigny which will be the Bonus Point of this stage), before the ramp up to the finish line!

    One of them is thus the Bonus Point of this stage. The Bonus Points were introduced last year, at the Tour de France 2018, and they make their comeback this year but in a different way: they are now always on top of a climb. The Bonus Point, as we can read in the the rules of the Tour de France 2019, will attribute bonus seconds on the top of some climbs which are located at an important point of the race route. There's a total of 8 Bonus Points in the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 9th, 12th, 15th, 18th and 19th stages. These time bonuses are of 8, 5 and 2 seconds for the three first riders on top.

    4/ Tuesday 9 July 2019 - Reims > Nancy - 213.5 km

    The next day's start will still be in the Champagne department, in Reims to be more precise, the city which is actually more use to stage finishes then starts but this time it will see the peloton go off for the 4th stage.

    Direction east for this stage, towards Nancy, where the sprinters should most logically have the second occasion to take a stage win, at the end of the 1500 meters long straight line on the Boulevard d'Austrasie in front of the Matter stadium. The two 4th category climbs, at respectively 92.5 and 15 km from the finish, will probably not prevent them from sprinting for the victory!

    5/ Wednesday 11 July 2019 - Saint-Dié-des-Vosges > Colmar - 175.5 km

    Never before, the Tour de France has been in Saint-Dié-des-Vosges but this will now be the case in 2019 for the start of the 5th stage, close to the Pont de la République.

    This stage which will take place in the Vosges mountain area and mainly in the Alsace, 100 years after the very first stage in Alsace in the history of the Tour, and will bring the riders to Colmar. To get there, they'll have to climb the Côte de Grendelbruch early in the stage, but more importantly in the second half of the stage they'll climb towards the castle on top of the Côte de Haut-Kœnigsbourg and closer to the finish they'll climb the Côte de Trois-Epis and the Côte des Cinq-Châteaux, followed by a very rapid descent towards the finish line.

    6/ Thursday 12 July 2019 - Mulhouse > La Planche des Belles Filles - 160.5 km

    As in 2014 when the tenth stage took place between these same two start and finish cities, we'll see for this 6th stage a start in Mulhouse and a finish at La Planche des Belles Filles, the first mountain stage of this Tour de France 2019.

    The race route will however not be the same as in 2014 since the riders will find a combination of very difficult climbs with Le Markstein (winter and summer sports station) which goes on in the Grand Ballon and directly after the descent the Col du Hundsruck. A bit further they'll climb the famous Ballon d'Alsace.

    At the foot of this climb, in Le Thillot, the race will get back on the race route which already brought them to La Planche des Belles Filles in 2014, via the Col des Croix and the Col des Chevrères which will also be the Bonus Point of this stage. The climb of La Planche des Belles Filles itself will this time be one kilometer longer, on a track which has been stabilised but not completely resurfaced and which contains parts which climb above 20%.

    7/ Friday 12 July 2019 - Belfort > Châlon-sur-Saône - 230 km

    At the start in Belfort, where Eddy Merckx left wearing the Yellow Jersey (after having taken it the day before at the finish of the 6th stage on top of the Ballon d'Alsace) which he would never lose again until the finish in Paris, this is the longest stage of this [[Tour de France 2019]).

    A stage without any real difficulties (only 3 short climbs, two of the 4th and one of the 3rd category, in which a possible breakaway should thus expect the sprinters teams to chase behind them in order to have a bunch sprint at the finish of the stage in Chalon-sur-Saône.

    The 8th stage stage starting in Mâcon will be more hilly and after about 50 kilometers the riders will get on a road of "Croix" (corresponding to the names of the climbs they'll find there) with 4 and later on 2 other climbs.

    A pretty exhausting race route thus and just before the finish the riders will also climb the Côte de la Jaillière and its narrow roads before they cross the white line in Saint-Etienne close to the Geoffroy Guichard stadium after a total of 3750 meters uphill.

    10/ Monday 15 July 2019 - Saint-Flour > Albi - 217,5 km

    Spontaneously no one might even have guessed it but there is a real history between Saint-Flour and the Yellow Jersey, which celebrates its 100 years of existence during this Tour de France 2019, especially for the French public. Indeed, this is where Thomas Voeckler took the leader's jersey of the general classification 8 years before after the 9th stage, and hold on to it until the end of the 18th stage, a period which made the French rider, who already wore the Yellow Jersey during 10 days in 2004, popular again.

    AlbiThis will be a transition stage towards Albi, but while they're often dedicated to the sprinters, a strong solo rider or a good breakaway group could well win here, with the different climbs above 1000 meters of altitude on the race route!

    R1/ Tuesday 16 July 2019 - rest day in Albi

    After this stage finish in Albi, the riders will enjoy the first rest day of this Tour de France 2019 the next day!

    No less than 10 stages without any moment of rest will have preceded this day. It's not the first time that the rest day is not on Monday but only on Tuesday (this was already the case for example in 2014 and in 2012 most recently, but also in 2008), but one thing is sure: the riders will be eagerly awaiting this day!

    11/ Wednesday 17 July 2019 - Albi > Toulouse - 167 km

    The 11th stage, the day after the rest day, will cross the departments of the Tarn (via the magnificent village of Cordes-sur-Ciel), of the Tarn-et-Garonne and the Haute-Garonne after a start in Albi, and this will be a sprinters stage with most probably a bunch finish in Toulouse!

    The riders will have to get up only two referenced climbs and these are located early in the stage and will thus most probably not prevent the sprinters from winning this stage. Well, that is, as long as they don't stop in Gaillac to enjoy the local wine instead of only doing the intermediate sprint ;-).

    12/ Thursday 18 July 2019 - Toulouse > Bagnères-de-Bigorre - 209.5 km

    While everyone, and especially the Média Pitchounes association, was dreaming of Tour stage start "at the foot of the towers" in Toulouse, in the popular area called Bagatelle, and while A.S.O. apparently wanted to try to make this dream come true, it'll only partly be the case in the end. Indeed, as Christian Prudhomme said during the presentation of the Tour de France 2019 race route, the start of this stage will take place "as close as possible to the Bagatelle area". More precisely, it'll be close to the Stadium, on the Ramier island, at one kilometer from Bagatelle, where the stage will go by before it gets to its km 0. The name of the Bagatelle area is thus shown proudly in the time- and route schedule, but this is not exactly what we could call "a Tour stage start at the foot of the towers" of this popular area ...

    This will be the first Pyrenean stage, which will start flat in the first half of the stage, up to Bagnères-de-Luchon where the Tour had a stage finish last year and where the riders will find the intermediate sprint of this stage this year. Things will get more difficult from there, with the climb of the Col de Peyresourde and, after a few kilometers in the plain area of Arreau, the Hourquette d'Ancizan, followed by a big descent towards the finish city, Bagnères-de-Bigorre.

    13/ Friday 19 July 2019 - Pau > Pau - individual time trial - 27.2 km

    On Friday 19 July 2019, it'll be the real celebration of the 100 years of the Yellow Jersey. On 19 July 1919 it was in Grenoble that Eugène Christophe took the very first Yellow Jersey. Grenoble is not on the race route of the Tour de France 2019 but A.S.O. wanted this day to be a day of celebrations in a mythical city for the Tour de France and for that there's probably nothing better than an individual time trial in the city of Pau which has seen the Tour 70 times before already before its comeback in 2019 for this stage.

    Looking at the profile of this time trial south of the city of Pau, which is not completely flat, with the climb towards the intermediate timing point in Cériset and to the one on the Côte d'Esquillot, this could - at this stage of the race - well be a stage which can influence the general classification and lead to some changes and maybe even a new Yellow Jersey wearer. On this celebration day of the 100 years of this symbol, the potential new wearer of the yellow jersey will be even happier to take over the lead!

    The third intermediate timing point is south of Jurançon and from there, the riders will have another 5.3 kilometers to go before they cross the finish line in Pau one by one.

    It'll also be on this race route that the women's race "La Course by le Tour" will be organised in 2019. Instead of what happened the previous years, it'll thus not take place the same day as the stage of the men's race but on 23 July 2019 when the Tour de France will already be in Nîmes! Still, the women will have to this track 5 times, for a total distance of around 135 kilometers.

    14/ Saturday 20 July 2019 - Tarbes > Tourmalet - 117.5 km

    The second Pyrenean stage in line starting in Tarbes will be pretty short, with its 117.5 kilometers, but it's all about the two climbs: one in the middle of the stage, the Col du Soulor, and the final climb towards the Col du Tourmalet where the Tour de France 2019 will for the first time go above a 2000 meters altitude with the 2,115 meters of the Tourmalet.

    Even though the Tourmalet is the most climbed mountain in the history of the Tour, there have only been two stage finishes of a Tour de France stage on top of the Tourmalet before, in 1974 with Jean-Pierre Danguillaume being the winner and in 2010 with Andy Schleck as the winner, being congratulated by Danguillaume.

    After a transfer, the riders will be at the start of the 15th stage in Limoux, for a stage which actually goes back around, in western direction.

    Apart from the mountain top finish, 3 referenced climbs will be on the programme of this stage: the Col de Montségur and, after a few kilometers in the plain area of Tarascon-sur-Ariège, the Port de Lers and its irregular climb, which will rapidly be followed by the Mur de Péguère which was previously part of the Tour race route in 2012 and in 2017. For the first time, the finish will not be in the city of Foix itself, but on top of a climb just beside, at the Prat d'Albis, a site which is usually taken by free flights, mountain bikes and hikers at 1,205 meters high.

    In total, this stage will have a 4,700 meters altitude gain.

    R2/ Monday 22 July 2019 - Nîmes

    After this 15th stage, another rest day will be awaiting the riders and they'll be able to enjoy it after a short transfer towards Nîmes!

    16/ Tuesday 23 July 2019 - Nîmes > Nîmes - 177 km

    The race route of this stage shows something which is quite rare in the Tour de France. Indeed, it'll be a stage in line which will start in Nîmes and finish ... in Nîmes as well.

    This loop stage will be completely in the Gard department. After the start in Nîmes the riders will quickly get onto the Pont-du-Gard, which is an exceptional privilege because this bridge is normally no longer open to traffic.

    Most logically this will be a sprinters stage, even though they should pay attention to the wind because there will be about fifteen kilometers close to Uzès where they will be in a completely open area, as potential victims of the wind.

    This will be a transition stage which will visit the antique theater of Orange and Vaison-la-Romaine where the riders will find the intermediate sprint. A part from a short climb at mid-stage, the riders will find the climb of the Col de la Sentinelle at less than 10 km from the finish, before they'll fight for victory in Gap.

    19/ Friday 26 July 2019 - Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne > Tignes - 126.5 km

    Rond-point de l'OpinelFor the 5th time the Tour de France will go back to Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne and its famous Opinel roundabout, after 2006, 2010, 2012 and 2015, this time for the start of the antepenultimate stage.

    After a visit of Saint-Michel-de-Maurienne and Modane, the road will go uphill for real and the riders will start the climb towards a ski station, the Montée d'Aussois, and after the descent the trip continues till Bonneval-sur-Arc where they'll attack the climb of the Col de l'Iseran, the highest mountain of the French Alps accessible by road, which hasn't been part of the Tour since 2007 and of which the last climb via this southern side took place in 1963. In 2019 it'll naturally be the rooftop of the Tour de France (souvenir Henri Desgrange) and it'll also be the Bonus Point of this stage!

    After the descent of the Iseran down to Val d'Isère and after having followed the Lac du Chevril, the riders will not turn on the dam as usual, but will continue on and take a road which goes under the dam, and which was never taken before during the Tour de France, to get onto the climb towards Tignes where there has been only one other finish in the history of the Tour de France, in 2007.

    20/ Saturday 27 July 2019 - Albertville > Val Thorens - 130 km

    Albertville : vive le Tour - © Thomas Vergouwen / velowireThe forelast stage, the last of a triplet of Alps stages, will start in Albertville, where the Tour lastly already had a stage start in 2018 (11th stage, which was the stage where Geraint Thomas took over the lead in the general classification and never left the Yellow Jersey anymore), showing a hug yellow jersey with the text "Vive le Tour !" on the town hall at that time (see photo). Two times in a row thus that the Olympic city receives the Tour de France, where other cities sometimes desperately wait for the Grande Boucle to come by.

    Cormet de RoselendThis short stage will, like the previous one, be completely in the Savoie department. Starting from Beaufort the riders will get on the climb of the col du Méraillet, and its lake, which continues rapidly in the climb of the Cormet de Roselend which was already on the programme of the Tour de France 2018.

    After the descent down to Bourg-Saint-Maurice Les Arcs and the visit of the valley until Mâcot, the riders will discover a new route and a new climb in the history of the Tour de France, the Côte de Longefoy, which will go on up to Notre-Dame-du-Pré (1,311 m) followed by the descent towards Moûtiers. L'Etape du TourThe final climb of the Tour de France 2019 in the Alps will still be waiting for them at that time, a never ending climb of 33.4 kilometers towards Val Thorens, the highest station of Europe (2,365 m). This 3rd highest finish in the history of the Tour makes its comeback, 25 years after the unique previous visit in 1994.

    This stage will also be the one which was chosen for the amateur race, the Etape du Tour, 6 days earlier, on 21 July 2019, with an altitude gain of 4,450 meters.

    21/ Sunday 28 July 2019 - Rambouillet > Paris Champs-Elysées - 128 km

    After the big transfer between Val Thorens and the parisian area, the last stage of the Tour de France 2019 will start in Rambouillet which will see the Tour come back after the last start which took place there in 2012.

    Eugène Christophe - © velowire.comThe visit of the Vallée de Chevreuse allows to award some final points for the King of the Mountains classification. In order to get to Paris and its famous Champs-Elysées, this stage will go through Issy-les-Moulineaux and thus not Malakoff which could have been a last honour to the 100 years of the Yellow Jersey. A missed occasion for the organisation of the Tour and the city of Malakoff, because the very first rider to wear the Yellow Jersey, Eugène Christophe, lived there and also worked for the city as a bike postman once he ended his career (there has just been a renovation of the commemoration monument this year; the photo shown here shows it before its renovation).

    Anyway, the itinerary the riders will follow in Paris will be new anyway, coming by in front of the Eiffel Tower, the Assemblée Nationale at the Palais Bourbon, for the first fois in front of the Sénat at the Palais du Luxembourg, in front of the Palais de Justice on the Île de la Cité, before they get into the Cour Carrée du Louvre (!) and come by the famous pyramid of the Louvre which celebrates its 30 years anniversary this year, before they turn onto the rue de Rivoli and get back on the usual itinerary which brings them to the Place de la Concorde and the Champs-Elysées, the Place Charles de Gaulle / Place de l'Etoile and back on the Champs.

  1. Merci Thomas pour ce bon travail, toujours autant détaillé.
    Le tour peut être animé dès la première semaine avec l'étape de la Planche des Belles filles et surtout les étapes des 13 et 14 juillet qui vont être compliquées à contrôler pour les équipes.

  2. Merci, tres interessant.

  4. Il manque etape du 23 juillet Nîmes Nîmes
    + erreur sur villes traversées ds etape du 21 juillet

    | th31300 | sunday 30 June 2019 at 9:42:02

  5. Bonjour @th31300,

    Merci de l'avoir signalé ! En réalité, le texte était écrit, mais à cause d'un "commentaire en HTML" (qui ne sont pas affichés sur la page) la fin du texte de l'étape du 21, la mention du jour de repos et le début (avec les cartes et tout) de l'étape du 23 juillet n'étaient pas affichés. En conséquence, celle du 21 juillet se terminait donc sur les infos (villes traversées) de l'étape du 23/7.

    C'est maintenant corrigé ! :)

    | Thomas Vergouwen | monday 01 July 2019 at 13:05:52

  6. Amazing, thank you so much for this!

    | Ricky Gellatly | wednesday 03 July 2019 at 23:12:41

  7. Hello Thomas, thanks for the article, great as usual. Any idea for the feed zones locations? I remember that you used to higlight them the past years

    | Benjamin | sunday 07 July 2019 at 19:17:04

  8. bonjour votre site est très bien fait, beaucoup d'infos, merci pour votre travail. Je cherche a connaitre la zone de ravitaillement de l'étape de Reims -Nancy et de l'etape St Dié- Colmar! Je voudrai amener mon petit fils à cette zone car est fan de vélo et pourquoi pas récupérer une musette!
    Cordialement

  9. Hi Thomas, always look forward to loading this for our trip chasing the Tour around France. The KMZ file isn't loading this year for some reason. Doesn't recognise it in google earth and Google Maps gives a "A network link in the KML file is not accessible or it is not formatted as a KML file." error when loaded there. Do you have another file version?

    | Georgie | tuesday 09 July 2019 at 14:17:40

  10. I second Georgie's comment. Hope you can get it working!

    | Charles Williams | tuesday 09 July 2019 at 17:16:51

  11. @Benjamin #7, you can find the answer to your question at the beginning of the article

    @Georgie #9 & @Charles #10: the KMZ file is working perfectly fine on both Google Earth Pro on desktop and Google Earth on mobile. Please make sure you've downloaded the latest version of Google Earth from earth.google.com (link in the article). If the problem persists, you'll have to find the reason for it on your side (blocking by proxy or virus scan for example or something similar) as the file is perfectly fine.

    | Thomas Vergouwen | thursday 11 July 2019 at 0:01:58

  12. The file loaded perfectly, but today, July 10, it will no longer load.

    | BenP | thursday 11 July 2019 at 4:27:59

  13. I have the same problem - it worked fine yesterday, but today it shows no content at all in Google Earth Pro. The file is also a lot smaller than last year (~300 bytes instead of ~300 Kilobytes) - is it a link that can't handle the traffic?

    | Seán | thursday 11 July 2019 at 5:47:19

  14. I've got the file at the end of the link and tried loading that, but I get an error.

    Parse error at line 16691, column 6: mismatched tag

    | Seán | thursday 11 July 2019 at 6:06:34

  15. @BenP #12 and @Seán #13/#14: as you might have seen I added in the feeding zones :) and doing so I made two small mistakes in the file when reporting them in the big file which contains all stages.

    I've corrected these mistakes and I guess it should be working OK again now. Unfortunately I'm unable to test it right now since I'm not able to install Google Earth on the computer I have with me during the Tour de France. So, please let me know if it works OK if you get the chance to test it, or otherwise tell me which error message shows up.

    | Thomas Vergouwen | thursday 11 July 2019 at 7:45:32

  16. Working perfectly now. Thanks Thomas!

    | Seán | friday 12 July 2019 at 5:14:47

  17. Great! Thanks for the feedback :)

    | Thomas Vergouwen | friday 12 July 2019 at 10:38:13

  18. Bonjour quelqu un connaîtrais les lieux de ravitaillement pour les étape d albi jusqu'à Foix ? Merci pour vos reponse

    | Arnaud | friday 12 July 2019 at 17:07:25

  19. @Arnaud #18 : il suffit de regarder sur la carte, dans laquelle les zones de ravitaillement sont maintenant affichées :).

    | Thomas Vergouwen | friday 12 July 2019 at 17:09:30

  20. Toujours de superbes photos !
    J'étais présent sur l'étape "pétillante" d'Épernay ou une EXPO sur le cyclisme était à découvrir au Bar "Le Soleil"
    Perso, j'attends la haute montagne ..
    Amicalement

    Many thanks and greetings

    | Wolfgang Heyden | sunday 14 July 2019 at 12:03:42

  22. Hi

    | Markus Dierker | sunday 14 July 2019 at 14:54:19

  23. Hallo Thomas,
    I've tried today to download the .kmz File:
    tour-de-france-2019.kmz 336 b 15.07.2019 23:45 -a--
    The filesize is 336 byte. Is it possible to upload the right file again?
    Many thanks and greetings.
    Wolfgang Heyden

    | Wolfgang Heyden | tuesday 16 July 2019 at 10:28:48

  24. Hello Wolfgang #21/23,

    The file is correct despite its small file size. It works correctly, if it doesn't for you, there's probably a problem on your side.

    However, you can indicate the error message you get if you want to try me to help you 😉

    Merci BONNET #20 :)

    | Thomas Vergouwen | tuesday 16 July 2019 at 13:55:14

  25. Bonjour j'aurais voulu savoir l'endroit de la zone de ravitaillement de la derniere étape Rambouillet - Champs Elysées car sauf erreur de ma part elle n'est pas marqué sur le plan c'est peut etre bien la seule? Merci d'avance!

    | Ferré | tuesday 16 July 2019 at 19:59:46

  26. @Ferré #25, il n'y en a pas sur cette étape, c'est pour ça !

    | Thomas Vergouwen | tuesday 16 July 2019 at 20:08:43

  27. Hello Thomas,
    you are right, All works fine.
    Many thanks and greetings...
    Wolfgang

    | Wolfgang Heyden | thursday 18 July 2019 at 20:16:03

  28. Bonjour à tous, j'avais une petite question pour vous ! Est-ce que vous savez où ce trouve la feed zone pour la dernière étapes du tour cette année entre rambouillet et Paris ? Étant fan de cylisme et pratiquants moi même ! Merci de vos réponse et bonne journée

    | Alexis | friday 19 July 2019 at 15:52:50

  29. @Alexis #25, comme déjà indiqué en commentaire #26, il n'y en a pas sur cette étape !
