Riding TDF Routes

I will be at a number of the TDF stages in a few weeks time and would like to ride some of the mountain stages in advance of the caravan & race. What I cannot seem to find is how far in advance do you need to ride to avoid the road closure (not counting the finish line last km). Can anyone advise based on their experience?
Thanks, Bill

Buffalo Soldier, Thanks. That's what I always understood but wanted to make sure. BTW, I will be riding with four friends from Antwerp.
