Less than a week before the start, the road book to Cyclopaat’s Tour de France 2014 has finally been released.
Suffice it to say that this year’s tour for professionals pales in comparison to this, at least as far as mountain stages are concerned.
First reconnaissance was done using the excellent “Cycling the Alps” website, trying to figure out how to catch as many cols in each stage as possible.
Stages were then drawn with the help of Strava’s mapping utility, listing segments and determining where the KOM points will be given.
Needles to say, we’re feeling sorry for the poor bastards that will have to endure this kind of insanity, inflicted by a race director as disturbed as the infamous Grunter von Agony, who will probably weep with joy and incorporate some of this shit in his next production.
So, let’s introduce the fools who have signed up for this “Mother of All Tours”, shall we?
