Tour de France

VN Show: Do we like the 2019 Tour route?

Next year's Tour route is a climbers paradise with five summit finishes and lots of high-altitude mountains, but it is short on TT kilometers.

This video includes images and footage from EF Education First-Drapac/Twitter, YouTube/Tour de France, Getty Images/Velo Collection, YouTube/Team Sky, YouTube/NBC Sports.

The 2019 Tour de France route looks a little different than previous editions. For starters, it doesn’t include the western half of France (sorry Brittany!). It also includes tons of high-altitude mountain passes and precious few time trial kilometers.

We analyze the routes ups and downs and consider who might do well in the race for yellow next July. (Uh, yeah it’s probably going to be Chris Froome and Team Sky…)

All that and more on this episode of the VeloNews Show!
