2013 Tour de France Route Review

This all French route is a classic.

Team’s Cadel Evans is also on the short list for potential winners. In a team press release Evans was hopeful of his chances in the 2013 Tour de France.

“In the last week, we won’t have an idea who’s going to eventually be the winner in Paris,” he said. “It’s long on road stages, but shorter on time trial kilometers. I think it suits me a little bit better than 2012. It’s a real mix and variation of stages right from the start to the finish. That third week is going to be very tough.”

Andy Schleck is the unknown variable. After Contador’s disqualification from the 2010 Tour, second place finisher Schleck was awarded the overall victory. However his 2012 season has been a disaster. The big question mark is will Schleck bounce back and be a worthy contender?
