    The Paris-Tours 2013 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth and the time- and route scheduleAfter the 107th edition of the Classic of the falling leaves in Italy, the Tour of Lombardy - which was again won by Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha), the 107th edition of Paris-Tours will take place this Sunday between Authon-du-Perche in the Eure-et-Loir department and the Avenue de Grammont in Tours.

    As usual, this classic is one of the last races of the season in France and the riders will thus want to show off at this occasion, just before the winter break.

    In this article you'll find all you need to know about this 2013 : end-of-season classic: the race route on Google Maps and a downloadable version of the race route in Google Earth, the profile and the time- and route schedule.

    The Paris-Tours 2013 race route

    In 2009, ASO signed a contract with the Eure-et-Loir department to organise the start of Paris-Tours in this departement between 2009 and 2013. Christian Prudhomme at the start of Paris-Tours 2011After a start from Chartres in 2009, La Loupe in 2010, Voves in 2011 and Châteauneuf-en-Thymerais in 2012, this year the race will start from Authon-du-Perche.

    Concerning the future starts, the agreement between the Eure-et-Loir department and ASO for the start of this classic has been renewed according to an article on the website of Eure-et-Loir but it has not been indicated for which period in time.

    The start of Paris-Tours 2012The distance of the 2013 edition is similar to the previous editions with 235 kilometres against 235.5 last year, 230.5 in 2011 and 233 in 2010. After the start on the Place des Marronniers at 10.25AM in Authon-du-Perche, the riders will follow the rue Marie Thibault, rue du Sous-Lieutenant Germond and the Avenue Jean Moulin in Authon-du-Perche before they get on the D13 and the D9 where they'll find the kilometre 0, 3.3 km from the place where they started, in the Bois du Boulay. They'll follow this D9 road down to Bazoche-Gouet where they'll continue east towards Chapelle-Royale where they go up north-east to Saumeray. They'll go down south via the D28.1/D144 towards Bonneval where Paris-Tours U23 2013 will start and where the final time trial of the Tour de France 2012 started. From there they're back on the usual Paris-Tours race route. The feeding zone will as usual be in Vendôme.

    The final part of the race route will be a little bit different. It'll still contain the Côtes de Crochu, de Beau Soleil and de l'Epan at 30.5, 10 and 7 kilometres from the finish line but the route through Ballan-Miré is slightly different. The finish line will still be in the Avenue de Grammont despite the fact that it was initially announced that it would be the last time in 2010 already. The tramway in Tours had reduced the length of the long final straight line in this avenue from 2,700 to 660 metres, but last year it got a little bit longer again, with 800 metres, and this will still be the case this year.

  1. Le nouveau parcours permet d'aborder Monts (entre Veigné et Ballan) avec une petite montée de 500m à 4% celle ci s'effectuant après un virage à prendre à une vitesse raisonnable. Cela change de l'ancien passage où la montée de l'Etang du Ponceau (Entre Veigné et Ballan) s'effectuait après une descente rapide et large. L'objectif est clair pour ASO : Faire en sorte de prendre les bosses avec une vitesse moins forte au départ pour favoriser les "punchers". Cela se vérifie depuis que le Paris Tours prend la Cote de Beau Soleil (inscrit depuis 2009 je crois), et la Cote de l'Epan par un virage à angle droit (alors que précédemment à 2009 cette montée s'effectuait après un bout droit d'environ 4km).

  2. Bonjour Thomas, les courses diffusés sur NBCSN ne sont jamais diffusées au Canada (seulement aux États-Unis).

  3. @fralaf, j'ose espérer que le département média d'ASO est quand même au courant du contenu de leurs accords avec les diffuseurs ;-). Toujours est-il qu'après vérification, je vois qu'il s'agit d'une diffusion en différé donc je l'ai retiré de la liste pour cette raison.
