Im from Sheffield but live in Holland and ride a lot in Belgium. Actually Yorkshire and Belgium can provide very similar topography. Yorkshire is a bit more mixed and a lot less tree lined but ofr hills and steepness they are very similar. Having said that therei s little in Belgium that compares to a hill like Holmemoss for length and average gradient.

Glad they can get maps out for 2014 but not 2013.

Second stage does look good though!

The final 20km of Stage 2 should look something like this.

Cambridge down to London, looks like a straight shot.

Going to be almost pan flat, no matter the details of the route. There isn't much they can do about it.

Liege Bastogne Liege without the tough final 2km....it should be a very good stage. Sagan and Degenkolb to duke it out for the win. Lots of racing to get through before we get to that.
