UPDATE 22 November 2007: the start from Monaco has now been confirmed; click here to read more about the start of the Tour de France 2009 from Monaco !

In 2009 the Tour de France would start in Monaco ...
That's at least what we can read in the daily newspaper Le Parisien .

After the start of the upcoming edition on July 7th, 2007 in London, the start of the Tour de France 2008 in Brittany (Brest) this would be the first start ever of the Tour in Monaco.

According to Le Parisien Monaco's start would be a 15,2 km time trial.

In addition to Monaco several other cities were Tour start candidate for 2009, including Rotterdam, Utrecht, Liege, Lugano, Budapest, Florence and the Basque Country. As far as I know, at least the city of Utrecht has planned to come and have a look in this year's Tour de France to see how a Tour stage is organised. Maybe they'll try again in 2010 ...

ASO (the organiser of the Tour de France) didn't want to confirm nor deny the news, but we shouldn't forget Le Parisien is a newspaper edited by Editions Philippe Amaury, while ASO (short for Amaury Sport Organisation) is also part of that company ...

  1. Salut Thomas,

    Oui j'avais déjà lu celà il y a quelques temps. Ce qui me plait encore plus c'est le départ de Corse annoncé pour 2013...
    A très bientôt. Il faut que l'on s'appelle, on va être un peu concurrent...

  2. Bonjour Pascal !

    Un départ en Corse réparerait alors ce petit oubli ... tous les départements de la France ont déjà été visités par le Tour de France, sauf la Corse !!

    On va être concurrent ? Tu veux dire que tu ferras plus que seulement l'étape dans la caravane pour laquelle tu as été invité ?

  4. Bonsoir Nathalie et désolé de ne pas t'avoir répondu plus tôt ... Je ne suis pas au courant de cette rumeur et je dois même dire que je ne l'ai lu nulle part ailleurs ...

    Je me demande donc si la personne qui te l'a dit n'a pas voulu te faire une blague ... un peu ratée certes ;-).
