I assume this is the closest thing to a thread about Tour de France 2018.
The first three (and a half) stages are known, 4th stage will be flat too, 5th is rumored to include some dirt tracks (not used by Tro Bro Leon), 6th stage either a hilly final to Brest or (more likely) a hilltop finish at Mur-de-Bretagne, than some more flat stages in Northern France for the rest of the week (the idea of going to Col de Béal on the first intermediate sunday seems to be abandonned).
A transfer to the Alps (first Alpine stage is rumored to finish in Aix-les-Bains). There are some rumours about a double finish to Alpe d'Huez: a road stage by Col de Sarennes, like in this years Dauphiné and a mtt like in the 2004 tdf. Next is a crossing of the Massif Central (with a finish in Mende) before 4 Pyrenean stages (2 mtf's) and a tt in the surroundings of Bordeax.
