Hey, this is fun. I just discovered that guessing the following year’s Tour route (officially announced in October) is much like trying to figure out what Apple will bring out to lighten my wallet just a little more, i.e there is an active community out there stirring up all sorts of rumours!
Below is a map that I totally won’t vouch for, mainly because I made some of it from my imagination. But, I took most of the info from a blog run by a guy named Thomas http://paris.thover.com/blogcategory.php?l=en&ID=18 and he apparently has a pretty good track record for his detective work from last year’s Tour. Following is the map. Some things to note first.
1. The lines in red have the rumoured start and finish towns (click on the line to view the names, stage and date).
2. The dark grey lines are mostly from my imagination, but tend to point from a rumoured finish town to the next rumoured start town, etc.
3. The squiggly lines are just me playing. I have no idea of the actual route. I just thought it would look better than straight lines.
4. Already confirmed is the Grand Depart – Rotterdam.
As I get more information I’ll post updates, but again, it’s all wild hearsay at this point.
