Tour de France 2021

Post by RobertArthur »

The Tour de France 2021: start in Brittany, June 26 and finish in Paris, July 18.

In more detail

The website Velowire is another place to look for inside information. Designed by Thomas Vergouwen, the same guy who did an excellent job with his website cartedudeconfinement. Interesting: Vue par departement.

Considering he wasn't even riding two weeks ago that's an incredible achievement and totally justifies his selection.

Due to the number of crashes and injuries during the first three stages of Le Tour in Bretagne, (there were three crashes yesterday), one rider was seriously injured close to the S3 finish in Pontivy, the riders were on a protest strike on stage 4 this am. They rode one km from the start and then stopped and dismounted.
They say that the roads in Brittany are too narrow and too dangerous.
It wouldn't have anything to do with them riding too close to the guy in front would it? Nooo - :lol:

I suppose that depends whether you want a Tour de France or a bike race mimicking the Monaco grand prix.
