Claud Haut, the president of the Vaucluse regional council has told the newspaper La Provence that there will be a TDF stage starting at Montélimar and finishing at the summit of Mont Ventoux.He added that the stage will be held on Saturday 25th July ie the day before the finish in Paris!
All is now clear for greenjersey. This explains LA’s remarkable comeback plans. He has not forgotten and deeply regrets gifting the Ventoux stage of the 2002 Tour to Marco Pantani, R.I.P., and LA now has the chance to complete his TDF palmares.
BTW don’t make holiday plans based on anything you read here!
