2016 Tour de France Route
2016 Tour de France Route

Col has been used by Tour de France2016 Tour de France Route Rumours. This page will contain all the info I come across about the route of 2016 Tour de France up to the presentation on the route in October 2015. Rumours, hearsay and wild speculation.

2016 Tour de France to start in Normandy.

The 2016 Tour de France will be the 103 edition and will get under way from Manche Department, Normandy in 2016. The department has welcomed the Tour de France 23 times between 1911 (Cherbourg) and 2013 (individual time-trial from Avranches to Mont-Saint-Michel), but it has never hosted the Grand Départ before.  The last start in France was in 2011 in Vendee.

In the aftermath of the Grand Départ in Corsica, Yorkshire and Utrecht in Holland in 2015, a spectacular visual feast will be part of the program for the beginning of the 2016 Tour, which will set off from the foot of the Mont-Saint-Michel. The riders will first follow the bay then, after crossing the Cotentin Peninsula, will head to Utah Beach, one of the 6 June, 1944 landing beaches, situated at Sainte-Marie-du-Mont. This mainly coastal route could expose the riders to wind gusts, but the totally flat profile will most certainly be to the advantage of the teams of the top sprinters.

The 2016 Tour will waste little time in posing a challenge to the contenders. As early as day two of the race, Sunday July 3, 2016, the leaders will have to make themselves and their intentions known and head into battle. After leaving Saint-Lô, the race will make its way towards Coutances then back to the coast with the Channel Islands in the background. But in approaching La Hague, the riders will have to prepare for a more difficult time. The crossing from Cherbourg to Octeville will bring the peloton, or what is left of it, towards the tough La Glacerie climb. At the top there will be seconds to take after a three kilometer ascent with a 14% grade section.

After crisscrossing the department and skirting its coastline, the Tour de France peloton will say goodbye to the Manche on Monday July 4, 2016. Stage three will start from the west coast port and seaside resort of Granville, for a destination that will remain unknown until October 20, 2015, the date of the 2016 Tour de France presentation.

Christian Prudhomme, Tour de France Director: “The Manche is a very beautiful department with breath taking scenery. It offers varied terrain that will favor the sprinters at Utah Beach, and allow the punchers their chance to standout in the hills above Cherbourg-Octeville. Let us not forget the Mont-Saint-Michel that will majestically enhance the very first pedal strokes of the riders of the peloton, three years after it was the backdrop for the 100th Tour de France.”
Jean-François Le Grand, President of the Manche General Council: “It was written that the history of cycling, the Tour de France and the Manche would one day converge. We are proud to offer cycling a sumptuous setting, to promise the Tour de France a warm and passionate welcome and to offer the Manche all the glory it deserves. The coming together of the three during the 2016 start will be magic.”

The Manche stages of the 2016 Tour:
• Saturday July 2: Mont-Saint-Michel – Utah Beach Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, 188 km
• Sunday July 3: Saint Lô – Cherbourg-Octeville, 182 km
• Monday July 4: Granville > …

It is expected that the route will be clockwise around France. The race will travel to the east, passing north of Paris to the Somme to mark the 100th anniversary of the great battle. Then it will head south to Verdun for the centenary of the most important WW1 battle from a french perspective. The first week will be flat with lots of opportunities for the sprinters. The middle of week 2 will be the Alps before the final week in the Pyrenees.

Hautacam on the first ride on Sunday morning. By the time I made the summit it was raining and continued to all day.

29th November 2014.

Plans don’t always workout. Thursday I had planned to do 3 climbs. It was a nice calm and mild day at the bottom. By 5 km to go it started to get windy. At 3km from the top I got blown off the bike and the bike blown off the road and over the edge. Luckily it was not a big drop and I retrive it undamaged. I made to the top but that was it for day and the next day.

On Saturday I rode it 3 times. I’m now on 94 and plan to be finished in the next 3 or 4 days all being well.

25th November.

I have 90 rides completed. A few big days now and I’m finished.


13 November 2014

Getting close now, I need to finish it in the next 2 weeks. Today was my 84th ascent.

Now that the busiest period of the summer is over it’s time to get back to my challenge to ride Hautacam 100 times in 2014. It’s been a long and hard summer, we’ve not had a day off since the beginning of May and won’t for another 6 weeks yet. Slow and steady does it. Yesterday was my first time in a month and number 53. So far August has been a lot colder and wetter than average and as you can see in the photo everything is still very green.

1903 Tour de France
1903 Tour de France finish in Paris. Leon Georget and Maurice Garin

Stage: 6 – 19 July : Nantes – Paris/Parc des Princes, 471.00 km

1903 Tour de France – Stage 6 started at 18:00 in the city centre of Nantes. There was a huge crowd in attendance. After the events of the previous day Garin is booed while Augereau was applauded and cheered. As the race left Nantes hundreds of other cyclists rode along along with the racers. A very fast pace was set from the start with the riders averaging 30 km/h for the first few hours. During the night around 03:00, there was an accident involving 2 motorbikes which were following the race. One of the motorcyclist was fatally injured.

Racing was banned in the city of Paris so the sprint finish for the stage was Ville-d’Avray to the west of the city. It was 14:09 in the afternoon when the first 8 riders arrived to contest a sprint which was won by Garin with Augereau in Second. The riders then went on to Parc des Princes where they road 2 ceremonial laps in front of 20,000 paying spectators.

First and Last

At the age of 32 Maurice Garin made history by winning the first Tour de France. The following day he returned by train to his home town Lens, where he was paraded through the streets in triumph. Garin’s average speed for the entire route was 25.6 km/h. He lost 2.5kg during the race. After retiring from cycling Garin ran a garage in Lens. He died in 1957.

The last placed rider was Arsène Millocheau who finished almost 61 hours slower than Garin at an average speed of 15.7 km/h. Millocheau was 36 years old at the time and had had a very successful career behind him. He had participated in the first Bordeaux-Paris and the first Paris-Brest-Paris, a grueling 1200 km event, in 1891. He completed his last Paris-Brest-Paris in 1921 aged 54. He ran a bike shop in Paris until his death in 1948.

Stage: 3 – 7 July : Marseille – Toulouse, 423 km

1903 Tour de France – Stage 3. The race was started in 2 groups. Those who competed for the GC left 1 hour before 5 riders who competed for the stage only. Hippolyte Aucouturier started in the second bunch. Eugene Brange won the sprint from the first group but Aucouturier arrived just 27 minutes later and was declared the winner. Second placed Léon Georget suffered from diarrhea and lost 1 hour 52 minutes to Garin.

This is said to have been the hardest stage due to the terrible roads, strong winds and very hot sun.
