Posted 28 June 2013 - 06:32 AM

This is the bill of fare for the 2013 Tour de France which starts on the island of Corsica.

 

Unlike previous years this years race starts with a proper stage and goes on to include several very tough climbing stages in what it a tougher route than the 2012 version. Running from Saturday June 29th to Sunday July 21th 2013, the 100th Tour de France will be made up of 21 stages and will cover a total distance of 3,404 kilometres. 

 

  • 7 flat stages 
  • 5 hilly stages 
  • 6 mountain stages with 4 summit finishes 
  • 2 individual time trial stages 
  • 1 team time trial stage 
  • 2 rest days

 

 

First up Corsica... then nothing but the French mainland Corse-du-Sud and Haute-Corse were the only two departments in metropolitan France that had never before hosted the Tour. The Grand Départ of 2013 will put an end to that. Once back on the mainland, the race will continue entirely within France and not take in any foreign countries – a concept last applied in 2003.   IndividuaL and team time-trials The 4th stage, contested at Nice across 25 km, will represent the team time trial challenge, last carried out in 2011. Two individual time trials are also scheduled over a distance of 33 km between Avranches and Mont-Saint-Michel on stage 11, then over 32 km between Embrun and Chorges, on stage 17.   Alpe-d’Huez 1 and 2 The most significant change and, without a shadow of a doubt one of the highlights of this 100th edition: the Alpe-d’Huez will be climbed twice on the 18th stage. The first passage at the top of Alpe-d’Huez 1 will take place 50 kilometres before the finish at Alpe-d’Huez 2. Three further summit finishes are planned: Ax 3 Domaines, Mont Ventoux and Annecy-Semnoz, a new venue on the Tour map.

Stages 7,8 and 9 look to be pretty tough days.

But the real killer stages will be 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20.

Stage 17 being an individual time trial stuck in the middle of 4 days of tough climbing.


Just happy to be here.

Hey there, if you can't get an online stream you can use a VPN service like this http://hidemyass.com/vpn/ to make it look like you're from Australia and stream the SBS stream, it should be pretty fast for you from fiji. Or if you prefer eurosport, select the UK and then hook into their feed. The website http://www.steephill...tour-de-france/ maintains a good list of the live streams, some arnt geo blocked, but the better quality ones often are.

Tour News:

Tour de France preview: stage two

Surprisingly hard for the Tour's first Sunday, a brief run across the middle of Corsica with a second category col topping out at almost 1,200m. This will be eventful, because the field will have fresh legs; anyone who can climb a little bit will have ambitions. Expect at least one favourite to lose time in some kind of incident. The obvious candidates for victory are the Slovak Peter Sagan or Philippe Gilbert of Belgium, from a largish group of the contenders and their lieutenants. http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2013/jun/21/tour-de-france-stage-two-preview  

Tour de France: Tony Martin will start stage 2

Omega Pharma QuickStep has confirmed that stage 1 crash victim Tony Martin will start Sunday's Tour de France stage.   The World time trial champion crashed heavily towards the end of Saturday's stage and was taken to hospital after crossing the line. He was later diagnosed with a concussion and contusion on his left lung. There was also tissue damage on his hip, left knee, shoulder and back. http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/tour-de-france-tony-martin-will-start-stage-2  

Stuck bus leads to confusion during Tour de France's opening stage

Crashes and confusion marred the finale in the first stage of the Tour de France in Bastia on Saturday. Tony Martin, Peter Sagan, Geraint Thomas, Mark Cavendish and Alberto Contador were among the illustrious names who either fell or were delayed. Martin, the reigning world time trial champion, was later rushed to hospital with a suspected fractured collarbone and deep wounds. http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/stuck-bus-leads-to-confusion-during-tour-de-frances-opening-stage  

Cavendish blames finish line changes for crash

The first stage of the 2013 Tour de France was supposed to be a day of glory for Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma Quick Step). The stage would inevitably end in a bunch sprint that suited the fresh British champion perfectly. However, a bus that got stuck under the finish line arch turned things around. The finish line was moved back 3km while the peloton was a short distance away. When the bus eventually got free, the finish line was put back to its original position. A little later, there was a huge crash in the peloton and Cavendish was blocked. That meant no win, no yellow jersey and no green jersey for the Manxman. http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/cavendish-blames-finish-line-changes-for-crash    

AN ABNORMAL OBSESSION WITH DOPING

If there's one thing in pro cycling as reliable as the Tour de France, it's the inevitable doping assertions and leaks that precede the race each year. In 2006, Operation Puerto saw the last-minute withdrawal of Jan Ullrich, Ivan Basso, and other favorites. Floyd Landis made his accusations against Lance Armstrong in the run-up to the 2010 Tour, and Tyler Hamilton put in an encore performance a year later with his tell-all interview on 60 Minutes.   So it was like clockwork when French journalist Antoine Vayer released new research that questions past Tour champions' performances in a digital report titled Not Normal? An insight into doping and the 21 biggest riders from Lemond to Armstrong to Evans. The report came just days before the publication of Vayer's new book, La Preuve Par 21, which compiles years of research into the power outputs of Tour de France winners since 1982. http://www.outsideonline.com/outdoor-gear/cycle-life/An-Abnormal-Obsession-with-Doping.html?213398561&utm_campaign=googlenews&utm_source=googlenews&utm_medium=xmlfeed

Superb stage with some really good racing. Froome's showed his hand with 11 kms to go chasing down the breakaway.

The dog at 4kms to go could really have caused carnage. He was lucky to get away with what he did.

 

Sagan rode a huge stage but fair dues to Bakelants for the stage win. 


Just happy to be here.

Stage 2 round up

 

 

Bakelants wins stage 2 of Tour de France

Belgian Jan Bakelants has won the second stage of the Tour de France in his first professional win. The 26 year old team Radioshack rider completed the route from Bastia to Ajaccio in three hours, 43 minutes and 11 seconds. He will wear the yellow jersey going into the third stage finishing just a second ahead of Slovakian Peter Sagan. The previous days' yellow jersey Marcel Kittel fell way off the pace but will go into the third stage wearing the green jersey as a consolation. http://www.euronews.com/2013/06/30/bakelants-wins-stage-2-of-tour-de-france/

 

Tour de France Stage 2 – In Pictures

  http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/gallery/2013/jun/30/cycling-tourdefrance  

Kittel goes from yellow to green at Tour de France

Wearing the yellow jersey in the Tour de France only lasted one day for Marcel Kittel (Argos-Shimano). The winner of the chaotic first stage of the Tour de France struggled during the hillier 156km long second stage from Bastia to Ajaccio. On the Col de la Serra, the second climb of the day, he dropped off the pace of the main peloton. The German sprinter never made it back up to the front of the bunch and eventually arrived in the so-called "bus" 17:35 after stage winner Jan Bakelants (RadioShack-Leopard), who took over the maillot jaune from Kittel. http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/kittel-goes-from-yellow-to-green-at-tour-de-france  

Tour de France - Bakelants in yellow after surprise stage two win

The 27-year-old from RadioShack - riding his debut Tour de France - was part of a six-man break that formed on the final run into the finish of the lumpy 154km stage from Bastia. With the peloton closing in, Bakelants surged ahead of his fellow escapees ahead of the kilometre-to-go banner and somehow had the strength to hold off the pack, which was led over the line by Slovakian Peter Sagan of Cannondale, just one second in arrears. http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/news/tour-de-france-bakelants-yellow-suprise-stage-two-153953383.html  

Love-hate Tour relationship for wounded Martin

The German time trial world champion was diagnosed with a concussion, a contusion on his left lung and severe damage on his hip, left knee, shoulder and back. Nevertheless the damaged 'Panzerwagen' got the ok from the team doctor and took the start in stage 2 in sunny Bastia on Sunday morning. The first TV-images showed that the 28 year-old pedalled well. Surviving the four categorized climbs in the Corsican heat would be another challenge. Martin eventually finished the stage in the grupetto with teammate Mark Cavendish at 17:35 from stage winner Jan Bakelants (Radioshack-Leopard). Martin might have been scratched, he clearly wasn't down and out completely. http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/love-hate-tour-relationship-for-wounded-martin  

Bakelants' First Pro Win: Tour de France Stage Two

Jan Bakelants of RadioShack Leopard Trek earned his first race win as a pro in the best possible way, crossing the finish line first in Stage Two of the 100th Tour de France. Bakelants joined a six-rider attack eight km from the end of the hilly 156-km stage, then attacked the break 1500 meters from the finish line. A group of several dozen riders tried hard to catch the RadioShack rider in the closing stretch, but Bakelants made it across with a second's gap. Bakelants won the race leader's yellow jersey as well as the stage. It is hard to imagine a better first win. "I am incredibly happy I have never won a race in professional ranks," Bakelants told Eurosport.com.   http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/141359-bakelants-first-pro-win-tour-de-france-stage-two/  

Millar disappointed to miss out on Tour de France yellow jersey

David Millar (Garmin-Sharp) warmed down on the rollers in the shadow of a bar well away from the noise of the finish area of the stage, taking time to ease the pain of the stage from his legs and the anger and disappointment of missing out on the yellow jersey at the Tour de France. http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/millar-disappointed-to-miss-out-on-tour-de-france-yellow-jersey  

Tour de France kicks off second day

The second stage of the 100th Tour de France has begun. Germany's Marcel Kittel won Saturday's first race. The stage began shortly before 2 p.m. local time. Sunday's 156-kilometer (90-mile) Bastia-Ajaccio route features three climbs. Marcel Kittel beat Norway's Alexander Kristoff in a final sprint to the finish on Saturday in a race featuring several heavy crashes. Danny Van Poppel of the Netherlands finished third. http://www.dw.de/tour-de-france-kicks-off-second-day/a-16915193  

Bakelants' luck is finally as good as his legs at Tour de France

Jan Bakelants' first victory as a full-fledged pro has been a long time coming. Lauded as Belgium's next stage racing prospect when he won the Tour de l'Avenir in 2008, the 27-year-old has subsequently been dogged by ill fortune. However, after receiving last-minute confirmation he would be riding the Tour de France when he finished third in the Belgian national championship 10 days ago, Bakelants finally took his first pro win on just his second day in the race, and claimed the significant bonus of the yellow jersey as well. http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/bakelants-luck-is-finally-as-good-as-his-legs-at-tour-de-france  

Mixed fortunes for Team Sky on the road to Ajaccio

Team Sky had plenty to smile about after stage 2 of the Tour de France to Ajaccio with Edvald Boasson Hagen finishing fifth and Chris Froome going on the attack in the finale. However there was also concern about Geraint Thomas and Ian Stannard, who finished in the gruppetto and in pain following their crash on stage 1. Froome jumped away on the Cote du Salario, just 12km from the finish. He went in pursuit of Cyril Gautier and then eased up on the descent to avoid any risks. http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/mixed-fortunes-for-team-sky-on-the-road-to-ajaccio

Tour Soapbox: The Aftermath and Stage 3 Preview

Bakelants detached himself from the likes of Sylvain Chavanel (Omega Phrama-QuickStep) and Juan Antonion Flecha (Vacansoleil-DCM) in the technical Corsican finale before eeking out every ounce of energy in his body to keep the peloton at bay. It was a display, archetypal of the Tour de France, a surprise winner to be sure, but a victory from a man that's been knocking on the door for quite some time, and one we'll hear more of in the future. http://www.sbs.com.au/cyclingcentral/al-hinds/blog/128046/tour-soapbox-the-aftermath-and-stage-3-preview    

Tour de France 2013: Stage 3 preview

The road hugs the coastline, traversing a series of headlands, and crossing four climbs. The territory is more hilly Classic than Grand Tour mountains, but the repeated uphills will erode the peloton. The interesting bit comes at the end; the Col de Marsolino is only 443 metres high, and the main part of the climb is only three kilometres long, but that's going to be enough to put most of the sprinters out of the game. http://www.cyclingweekly.co.uk/news/latest/538851/tour-de-france-2013-stage-3-preview.html  

Contador expects test of recovery on final Corsican stage

After falling on the opening day of the Tour de France, Alberto Contador (Saxo-Tinkoff) safely negotiated stage two to Ajaccio, although he warned that he would face a tougher test of his recovery on Monday's third and final Corsican leg to Calvi. "I feel good and I was lucky enough to have slept well last night [in spite of the crash]," Contador told AS after stage two. "My teammates were phenomenal all day long and we got through another difficult day. As my body warmed up and we got into the race, my wounds didn't bother me so much, although it was a bit uncomfortable sometimes, especially in the neck and back." http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/contador-expects-test-of-recovery-on-final-corsican-stage    

De Gendt blames stomach problems for Ajaccio time loss

Trailing in more than 17 minutes behind the day's winner Jan Bakelants (RadioShack Leopard) should have spelled the end for Thomas De Gendt and his ambitions for the general classification at the Tour de France but the Belgian who finished third overall in the 2012 Giro d'Italia has not given up hope. De Gendt felt unwell prior to the start of the second stage and cited stomach problems at the finish as the main reason for his time lost on the road to Ajaccio. http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/de-gendt-blames-stomach-problems-for-ajaccio-time-loss

Not much activity here on this thread but I have to wait to watch at night since I am too busy to watch during work hours. I am curious to see if Kloden and Voight get new contracts or just retire. I hate to see them go but the years are passing by for both.


Do not worry about old age, it doesn't last that long.

Poor form and some bad luck!

 

Van den Broeck abandons Tour de France

Jurgen Van den Broeck (Lotto-Belisol) will not take the start of stage 6 of the Tour de France. The Belgian general classification contender didn’t recover enough from the injuries sustained during the bunch sprint crash at the end of stage 5 in Marseille. The right knee injury ended up being worse than first thought, and has prevented Van den Broeck from getting on his bike in Aix-en-Provence on Thursday.

Other commitments the last few days have restricted posting and TV viewing activities.

 

I got to see today's stage though and I was impressed with Greipel's sprint and stage win.

Cav crashing earlier didn't help his bid today.

 

The next couple of days should prove interesting.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday's stages look like the start of the tougher stuff so there should be changes on GC.

 

Got to say that it's great to see Peter Sagan challenging in the sprints with the Green Jersey on his shoulders.


Just happy to be here.

The first of the mountain stages should give us a better idea of who can challenge Froome. Would like to see either Rodriguez, Contador or Evans put a minute or two into Froome

It's a furnace out there again today on the route. Maybe not warm by Aussie standards but very hot by Irish standards and I reckon warm by even French standards.


Just happy to be here.
