Hard, hard will build on the tour of last year – tour full of excitement, unexpected twists, Julian Alaphilippa's heroism.
"It was the best tour in 30 years. We have seen a new generation of cyclists who can influence the evolution of the race and want to win. It was an aggressive race, full of enthusiasm and attacks. It was a wonderful tour, "dreamed her boss Christian Prudhomme.
Nevertheless, the organizers of the biggest annual sporting event will try to outdo them.

year was very interesting and nice to the public. It leaves deep traces in the hearts of the fans. Many twists, unexpected moments, unpredictable whims of the weather. We want to build on this popularity, "said Jean Etienne Amaury, head of the organizing group A.S.O.
Already on the 27th of June. One week before the start of the usual 107th Tour
The Tokyo Olympics, whose mass race takes place only six days after the Elysian Fields rounding off the Paris Tour with a yellow jersey, are responsible for everything.
Who will it be?
We will wait more than nine months for this.
But we already know what to expect in France in a year's time.
A total of 3,450 kilometers, a minimum of shallow stages, many new but unknown ascents and no sacred summit in the form of Galibier, Tourmalet, Mont Ventoux or Alpe d'Huez
There will be 29 categorized climbs, one less than last year. Six riders to the top are waiting for cyclists and no team time trial. Only a single – penultimate day with a goal at the level of beautiful girls.
The winner of the 107th year will be definitively determined there.
It was the only certainty known before the presentation. The tour starts a long time ago in Nice.
After Fleurance (1977, 1979), Nice (1981), San Sebastian (1992), Monaco (2009) and Porto-Vecchio (2013) the tour starts for the seventh time in history. for the first time in 1906 with its fourth participation. René Pottier won the 345-kilometer test in Grenoble. In a year, the capital of the Côte d & # 39; Azur receives a cycling holiday for the 37th time and for the second time the entire circus starts.
"Nice will be the heart of the next year," says Prudhomme.
The first two stages offer a chance for different types of drivers.
The first stage will be a veritable sprinter on a 50-kilometer racetrack, which is cycled three times by cyclists.
A man who gets a yellow jersey here, but suffers the next day.
The next day will be pretty hard.
The summits Col de la Colmiane, Col de Turini and Col d & # 39; Eze wait for 190 kilometers. Exciting fight of the best climber on the second race day. A total of 3,700 meters in altitude
"At least it's interesting from the start to see the biggest favorites," says a delighted Prudhomme.

The flat stage from Nice to Sisteron follows before returning to the mountains. Act 4 will culminate at 1850 meters above sea level in Orciéres-Merlette, which was last visited in 1989 by Greg Lemond.

The entire colossus then heads west, where a wind test awaits Lavaur, where Mark Cavendish last ruled.
The weekend of the first week is spent by cyclists in the Pyrenees. First in a 140-kilometer test over Col de Mente, Port de Bales and Peyresourde. The destination is below the hill in Loudenvielle. Sunday, Col de Hourcere and Col de Marie Blanque offer unusually tough week ends before the opening. Second Week After a day's break, the Charoton Maritime peloton, where Boyard is moored, spends two tough tests with anticipated crosswinds and targets at Oleron and Poitiers
