Saturday, the 7th of July 2018, edition 105 of the Tour de France sets out on Île de Noirmoutier, a small island off the Atlantic coast of France. Straight after the start the peloton travels to the mainland for three weeks of compelling racing. The route is interesting enough, taking in everything that makes cycling such an exciting sport. Cobbles, punchy arrivals, sprints, dust roads, high mountains, an explosive 65 kilometres race through the Pyrenees, a hilly time trial on the penultimate day – and more. On the 29th of July, La Grande Boucle comes to a halt on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. (Slideshow route/profile)
