So will this tour have less or more tt than the pathetic 50k in 2011.
Don't know what your definition of pan flat is, but as someone who grew up just to the North of Epping Forest, my teenage self can assure you there are most definitely some hills around! That said they're not going to cause any pro-cyclists too much bother!Catwhoorg said: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.
I don't even know what that expression means and have been English since I was born here 67 years ago. Others seemed to understand it.Bavarianrider said:Seriously, why the heck is the Tour starting in one of Europe's most waterdown trashyards?

But I'm not that interested in the profile, more a map of the route - I want to see how close the race will pass to my Dad's house!
As a native speaker for long enough to have accumulated white hair, I'm just as baffled by what "waterdown trashyards" might be.InterestedSpectator said:I don't even know what that expression means and have been English since I was born here 67 years ago. Others seemed to understand it.
Would be good. I still think a short TTT near Calais is most likely stage 4 but cobbles could come afterwards.barmaher said:One other encouraging thing is that they are expected to have a cobbled race once they hit the continent. Something like Calais to Tournai/Lille/Roubaix with some of the P-R cobbles being used.
So at least two good stages look assured...
That does look like one of the best efforts aso have made in a long time.Mkind07 said:Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and wanted to post a couple of links that give more detailed insight into stages 1 and 2 of next years tour.
Looks like stage 2 is going to be insane!
What do you mean? After JTL has won the first of his eighteen LBLs in April and then dominated the Giro, this is the stage where he'll establish a decisive lead after a solo break established in the second kilometre, a lead which he'll extend all the way to Paris.Waterloo Sunrise said:Trust Yorkshire to act against the British national interest.
