Letour.fr said:This first flat stage will start at the Avenue des Loges, opposite the château in Saint-Germain-en-Laye. When crossing Yvelines and Essonne, the peloton will come up against a variety of long exposed sections. If the wind makes its presence felt, teams featuring race favourites will have to take great care. After 150 kilometres on the road, the bunch will catch their first glimpse of Nemours, but will first have to tackle a 45-kilometre loop in the route, before arriving on the Avenue de Paris and fighting it out in a final sprint, as we can all imagine.
