If you take the Alps or Pyrenees inside the first week it will be hard to maintain the action for the length of the race.rghysens said:I don't think it's that difficult. The main problem is that you can't start the tour always in the same area's.

I think the problem would be solved, if you had a classic/monument tough hilly stage in the opening weekend, though the main problem would be that it would be the first hard stage, and therefore many trying to protect their leaders -> many crashes.Ferminal said:Kind of sick of seeing the same one or two "hilly" stages in the first week which prove to be nothing.
It's going to be EPIC!Magnus said:Crossing the Parpillon in current state would be beyond ridiculous:
I'd love to go there sometime on my cross bike, but I honestly don't know if I'd dare to go through the tunnel. From what I've read there's a part where you can't see the light in neither end of the tunnel and supposedly it's very cold inside so for most of the year the water on the ground is frozen. You can read more about the climb here:Netserk said:EDIT: But to be serious the tunnel is on like 500 meters long, and there is actually a little path over that I think they would be able to pave.
