TDF profile Just done some quick and rough calculations.

The Course this year will start in Corsica and then covers 3479 kms (2161 miles).

  • 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

I looked at the stages and added up that the mountains and hills - climbing element only, will cover almost 250kms, of which this gains an elevation of about 43,000 metres.

I'm off carbo loading now.
