2020 TdF Route

Recommended Posts

So, the route is out and it seems it might be a course for the non-high altitude climbers.  Froome, Dumoulin, Alaphillippe, or Roglic versus types like Bernal or Quintana.  Interesting that it is so southern France specific, but I guess 2019 was also weighted towards eastern France.

Late June through mid July is tough.  I will be headed to Europe next year but I am more inclined to go early September rather than the summer.  On the other hand, the Gran Fondo Stelvio is on June 7th, and that is a tempting ride.  Nothing really lines up with the TdF for me, though :(

Yeah, July is out for me, due to my very short Erie sailing season. I do want to go back during a year that they hit the north coast, though. Never been to Normandy. My eye are now on the Giro as my next pro tour stop, or Worlds again.

Worlds would be great to see again.  It would be great for it to return to the US (too soon :( ) but a great option would be the upcoming Swiss and Belgian courses.  And don't forget Australia in 2022!!!

Every few years a leg will slip into Switzerland in the Haut-Jura area while I am over there "spoiling" the grandchild. Unfortunately, not this year. Stages 19 and 20 come closest. Guess I will have to be satisfied with going to the Montreux Jazz Festival which is also in July.
