2014 Tour de France Profile

The parcours of the 2014 Tour de France favors climbers. The riders will take on three mountain ranges—the Vosges, the Alps, and the Pyrenees—and five mountaintop finishes. The race will have only one time trial, and its route will include cobbles, which inject unpredictability, particularly for GC riders who might not be used to riding on them.
