    The route will officially be announced on Thursday at 10am , English time. From what I have seen so far, I fail to see why it is still called TdF as the 2019 one will be mostly on the East and Pyrenees. I remember when the TdF used to cover most parts of France. By the way, there will be no Ventoux or Alpes d'Huez this time. Let's wait till Thursday to be sure.

    Always a tiring subject, same as when the Tour of Britain route is announced - "why isn't it coming to my exact convenient location".

    I honestly think the route director does a good job in varying the route, especially in recent years. I'm personally tired of Alpe D'Huez, though.

    It's not as though France is short of mountains to ride up / over.

    I don't do British, I do England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

    ..but Brexit.:whistle:

    Which stands a chance of royally fecking up my plans to watch this year’s tour. I’ve had to skip a couple years because of fecklessness, but I’d hoped to resurrect the Tour de Bollo around norvan France this year. Applying for EU visa and booking campsite near the M20 now ........

  13. I have just been reading this article which made me smile. TDF next year. What would you add to make it more entertaining.

    I would add a ferry crossing and some long tunnels.
