I see Céret is mooted as depart for the Andorra stage. Makes perfect sense and the TDF was bound to pay visit to the birthplace of France's most successful Olympic athlete ever. @Libertine Seguros will know this one.
This route is a big "meh".......

Le Grand Bonard, perhaps via Romme and Colombiere is good combo.
Tignes from Bourg Saint Maurice is utterly mediocre. Via Iseran is bit better.
Mont Ventoux downhill finish could be just about anything.
Andorra depends very much on the route. As long as they don't do something like Envalira-Ordino-Arcalis.
The last two MTFs in the Pyrenees would be pretty good, but not more than that.

Overall this would be an archypical mediocre Tour route.
There's something in the rumored route resembling the routes from the beginning of the century.
Climbing share's compressed into the Alps, Pyrenees and Ventoux, instead of spread to several more ranges, as it's been the case in recent editions. We'll see what the measures are.
Very scenic opening week.

There is 0% chance they do Iséran again before Tignes given what happened last year :p

They should drop a road from Les Arcs to Sainte-Foy: that would be epic run in: Cormet de Roseland + Arc 1800 before Tigne.
I'd quite dislike a 50k flat time trial. I get the idea, the guys who lose loads of time have to attack but when you've got Jumbo or Ineos team strength, it doesn't work imo. Could be a Tour for Dumoulin to target and leave Roglic to go to the Giro
