Route unveiled for the 104th Edition of the Tour de France

With two ITT, and fewer climbs, an updated mountains points classification, the Tour de France due to start in Dusseldorf on July 1st next year, is designed to be as unpredictable as possible - so how will Chris Froome win his fourth Tour?

ASO is continually pondering how do keep the bookies second guessing, but only time will tell whether the 104th edition of the Grand Boucle whose route was unveiled to the great and the good in Paris this week, will be a quantum leap or as Sky Principal Dave Brailsford might say, a 'marginal gain'.

We already knew it would start in Dusseldorf, but beyond that was speculation coupled with the usual ASO press releases denying the rumours. When the route was finally released into the wild the collective reponse was probably 'certainly no slouch', mountainous despite apparently losing three climbs from the 2016 total.

Here is the route. Look forward to detailed analysis in the coming days.
