Who's heading to France for the Tour this year?

This year i'm going to be bookending the Tour, by heading to Monte Carlo for the first stage time trial and then heading over to Paris for the finish.

Probably grab my usual spot on the Champs Elysees at the turn at the top so I can see the riders and take pictures whilst also being in prime position to see the riders at on their celebratory lap at the end.

going to be watching the sprint finish in barcelona followed by the next days stage start, then watching on the aspin stage-climb is early on so should be quiet-last year watched alpe d'huez which was amazing so this should be different.

anyone know which is the finishing straight in barca yet?

It will be finishing on the Montjuic mountain, which is really an extended hill but rather steep. Almost like the finish that Contador blew up on in Paris-Nice this year.
