Tour de France Route '07

*Update: See also CyclingNews' Map and Stage Descriptions

Tour riders will have some unrestful rest days this year. After two days of climbing in the Alps, they will earn their first rest day, but they will immediately get hit with Stage 9's lovely combo of l'Iseran, Telegraphe, and Galibier. The next rest day follows the same strategy: 2 days of Alps climbs, rest day, and then a mountain top finish on Col d'Aubisque.

Sadly, no team time trial or mountain time trial, but it should be an exciting route. A London start is a fun plus: it should be added incentive for Millar to show his Prologue legs.
