    Paris-Tours 2009 : route (Google Maps/Google Earth), participants, numbers, ...Tomorrow Paris-Tours 2009, also known as the Classique des feuilles mortes: the classic of the falling leaves, will take place. The start of this 103rd edition is for the very first time in Chartres.

    In this article you'll find all you wanted to know about this end of the season classic: the full route, the route in Google Maps and a downloadable version of the route in Google Earth, the full itinerary and times, the 25 participating teams and the list of participants with their numbers.

    The start from Chartres

    Since 1994 Paris-Tours always started in Saint-Arnoult-en-Yvelines. On 9 September however, A.S.O. signed a contract with the Eure-et-Loir department for the organisation of the start of Paris-Tours from 2009 till 2013.

    At the official presentation of this contract Christian Prudhomme announced that the Tour de France will also visit the Eure-et-Loir somewhere in the next four years without however saying when that will be. The city Dreux, where the Tour de l'Avenir 2009 started last month, seems to be the most important candidate but that'll probably not be for the Tour de France 2010.

    Listen to what Christian Prudhomme has said about this on the local radio station Intensité.

    Paris-Tours will thus start from Chartres, more precisely on the Place du Châtelet, in front of the Conseil général d'Eure-et-Loir and at the foot of Chartres' cathedral.

    In 2004 Chartres already had a Tour de France stage finish: the 5th stage coming from Amiens.

    Before the start of Paris-Tours 2009 the presentation of the 25 teams will be at 9.45AM tomorrow morning.

    The route and the itinerary

    With the start from Chartres the first part of the route of Paris-Tours changes a little bit and the race is also a bit shorter: 230 kilometers instead of 252 in 2008.

    After the modified start the riders will find the usual route in Bonneval from where they'll continue towards the usual finish on the Avenue de Grammont in Tours (for the last time) at the end of a straight line of no less than 2,600 meters.
    Bonneval is also where Paris-Tours Espoirs starts (36 teams of 5 participants) for a distance of 179 kilometers. This city really loves cycling as they proved once again by announcing the creation of the Rue du Tour de France and a passerelle Bernard Hinault today!

    The feeding zone is in Vendôme for Paris-Tours élites and in Santenay for Paris-Tours espoirs.

    The map of Paris-Tours in Google Maps/Google Earth

    As usual I created an interactive map of the route which you can see below in Google Maps and which you can download in Google Earth using the link which is shown under the map.

    Do you want to make a virtual fly over this route? Or do you simply prefer to see the route in Google Earth?

    Wil André Greipel (Columbia-HTC), who won Paris-Bourges earlier this week will again be able to get a good spot in the sprintersfestival?
    Or will Philippe Gilbert (Silence-Lotto) win Paris-Tours for the second time in row?

    Or is this the perfect occasion for Tom Boonen (Quick Step) to take his 7th victory of the season? Maybe, but ... Jimmy Casper (Besson Chaussures - Sojasun) also thinks that 10 victories is not enough for him!
