Tour De France 2013 Route
lluuiiggii
As others said, I agree: there's no difference in having the Alpe dHuez on stage 20 or 21. "The most boring stage of the Tour" would simply be put somewhere else (profile-wise = flat).

But I was wondering: what about the financial aspect of the Champs Elysees, isn't it big enough to complete discard a non-Paris finish for ASO? I mean, lots of tourists, lots of people watching and buying stuff, as someone said a day for the press, with the champagne and all, that must raise some money?

Sure, you're completely right, lluuiiggii. I'm pretty sure that a finish in Paris will get them be paid a lot. So, I don't think the financial aspect (meaning they maybe don't get enough) made them think about a non-Paris finish.

They just said they talked about that, which means basically not that much. They talked about a dozan of scenarios, I guess. All we know is they gave it a thought, not more or less. In the end, I'm sure we see the finish in Paris and maximally a late mountain-stage (stage 19 or 20).

No idea if mentioned before as it's such a small 'thing' really, but last stage of Tour 2013, Champs-Elysée is very likely to end at night.

That may be an issue for the party afterwards. Pfft

Yeah. He likes to party in Spain so that's good news for him.

I like the idea of Champs-Elysée at night, it'll look great with the proper lighting.

That would be spectacular and resolve some of the problem with transportation to Paris if they want stage 20 to be a big summit finish

based on that looks a more balanced route to favour a true GC rider
but without profiles its hard to tell

I'm concerned about the length of the Mont-Saint-Michel ITT. The rest looks potentially good. Presentation in 10 minutes.

It looks quite short on the map unfortunately, i hope for two long TTs again, the rest seems well balanced. I am looking forwrd to the profiles.
I'll be back

Seems like a cool route. When will the stage profiles be known?

Perfect time to have a short meeting at the University. Hope to be back in ~30min when hopefully the 2013 route hasn`t started. Wink
