Go South! The 2013 Tour de France route revealed
We've hardly had time to catch our breath after the extraordinary last few months in the world of cycling, but the route for next year's Tour de France was announced today. A very interesting route too, with a heavy focus on the south and east of the country.
I'm very excited about the race starting in Corsica, before heading to my favourite French destination, the fabulous city of Nice, for a team time-trial. There are also some fierce climbs along the way, including iconic Tour favourites Mont Ventoux and L'Alpe d'Huez.
The Tour begins on 29th June and ends on 21st July. Get the dates in your diary :)
