  1. Bernhard Palmer says:

    looks as if Hindenburgstrasse in Monchengladbach will have a finish there, possible start at the foot ball stadium ( or finish there if starting elsewhere), all in the local press

  2. Daniel Gregory says:

    Thursday 13th July 50th anniversary of Tom Simpson’s death. Mont Ventoux??

  3. Hannah H says:


    Do you think Thursday 13th will be ending Alpe d’huez??

    I hope so

    • velopeloton says:

      Hi Hannah
      There is currently nothing to indicate that Alpe d’huez will be included in 2017.
      Thursday 13th will be Serre Chevalier.

      • Hannah H says:

        Fingers crossed they will squeeze it in somewhere. Always my favourite state and place to be.

      • Rod Annear says:

        Well thats confusing – here you say the 13th will be Serre Chevalier and above it says Luz ardiden? Seems unlikely that they will visit the Pyrenees first and alps seconds as they did last year. As long as i can remember it goes opposite each year. Which would mean Pyrenees in the last week?

        • Jonathan says:

          I have had confirmation from hotels in Serre Chevalier that the Tour is in the area 18th, 19th, 20th July. Therefore the Tour will be doing the Alps in the last week again, this will be 3 years running. The word is that Alpe d’huez is not appearing this year.

        • velopeloton says:

          For the past 2 years it has been Pyrenees first and then the Alps. 2008 and 2009 also. All recent rumours suggest that next year will be the same.
          A lot of things have changed since July.

  4. Shaun says:

    Any evidence for meribel? Word on the street is no Alpe D H this year. St Jean de Maurienne or Modane as start point perhaps. Lauteret road passable on small farm road and unlikely to be repaired in time after landslides Shaun

    • velopeloton says:

      Hi Shaun
      No. It’s just rumour. Criterium du Dauphine had a stage finish there this year. The story for that was that it was a double stage deal, as is common. Host the Criterium du Dauphine and then get a stage of Le Tour. Meribel would fit in nicely with what is known of the route before and after that.
      This map is stage 6 of this years Dauphine.

  5. Tom says:


    How sure are you that the tour will have its last few stages in the Pyrenees? We will be in the Alps around the end of July and would love to see tome of the Tour and were hoping that it might be spending the last week or so in the Alps.

  6. velopeloton says:

    Hi Tom
    As is stated above this is all just rumour. That said, I’m 100% certain it will not be in the Alps the last week. The weekend of the 14th will be the Alps.

    • Paul says:


      How much confidence of the Galibier?
      With your rumours of Meribel and then down to Col D’Izoard via Galibier, looks like St Jean de Maurienne valley could be a good place to be based for that week?
      Any suggestion of one of those stages taking in Les Lacets de Montvernier again??

      • velopeloton says:

        Hi Paul
        Presuming that the start and finish are correct then the Maurienne valley is a certainty. I don’t think that there would be any other option other than Col de Madeleine, Col du Telégraphe and Col du Galibier. The stage would be about 160km.

        No mention of Les Lacets de Montvernier anywhere for 2017.

  7. David says:


    With l’Etape du Tour being in the Alps the last two years, there must be a very good chance that it will be in the Pyrenees this year, is there any word on what stage and when it possibly will be?


  8. velopeloton says:

    The mayor of Rodez seems certain that Le Tour will visit his city next year.

  9. Julio says:

    I hope we can accommodate Mont Ventoux. The short climbing this year was an anti-climax (exception for Froome running without its bike). Thanks

  10. Muhammad says:

    So the first stage is 13km of ITT, will there be any more ITT? And if so, will they be flat? Thanks

  11. Gareth williams says:

    Is the tour going through normandy or Brittany in 2017 maybe Le Havre again .

  12. velopeloton says:

    This article claims that there will be a stage finish at Peyragudes ski station. The opening of James Bond “Tomorrow never dies” was filmed there 20 years ago. Seems an unlikely reason for having a stage finish. Should be a good route with Col du Tourmalet included.

  13. Olanogiro says:

    I would prefer a stage Pau-Peyragudes with Monté-Bales-Peyresourde-Peyragudes than Tourmalet-Aspin-Azet-Peyragudes. This is too similar year a year.

  14. Keith says:

    Does anyone know which date the Etape will be next year?

  15. Roberta L Nasser says:

    Can you please tell me whether the Tour will overnight – both ending and beginning the next day – from Troyes on Thursday, July 6th? Merci!

  16. Hugh says:

    Does anyone know of the possible route or towns that will be visited on stage 19 “Embrun to Salon-de-Provence”
    Looking to find a good advantage point preferably on an incline.

  17. Gail Murphy-Geiss says:

    Is there any more specific information on the route for Stage 16? I will be in Lyon, just over an hour away from the end point in Romans sur Isere, so I’d love to find a spot along the route to watch that day – preferably one that is accessible by train so I don’t have to rent a car. Perhaps they are going through or near Valence?

  18. Ray says:

    Anyone know what the reason is behind not publishing details of the route for each stage (ie. either an exact map showing the route or turn-by-turn directions)? I’d love to know what the routes are. Not sure why this is not being released. I have a Tacx bicycle trainer and I’d love to program the routes into my trainer so I can ‘ride’ the route beforehand.
