    Monday, 24 October 2011Cycling Weekly2 Comments


    The 2012 Tour de France starts in Liège, Belgium, on Saturday June 30 and concludes three weeks later in Paris on Sunday, July 22 2012.

    The Belgian city of Liège will kick off the 2012 Tour, having previously hosted the race's Grand Depart in 2004 with a 6.1km prologue time trial won by Fabian Cancellara.

    The race then heads due west into France hitting the first real hills of the race in Monts du Boulonnais on the way to Boulogne-sur-Mer before winding its way south to the Alps and a short excursion into Switzerland.

    Then it's across to the Pyrenees for what will be two key high mountains stages before a long transfer north for a decisive time trial stage and last day procession into Paris.

    There's a total of 96.1km of individual time trialling, four medium mountain stages, five high mountain stages and nine flat stages over the 3,479km route.
