The route of the 2018 Tour de France has been unveiled at the Palais des congres of Paris.

The 105th edition of the Grandle Boucle starts on July 7 with the town of Noirmoutier-en-l'Ile hosting the Grand Depart for a 189km stage to Fontenay-le-Comte.

The first week of racing includes a 35km long team time trial on day three, as well as finishes at the Mur de Bretagne and Roubaix.

The legendary Alpe d'Huez awaits the riders for stage 12, but one of the most explosive days will without a doubt be stage 17. With a length of just 65 kilometers and finishing on the Col de Portet, this stage is certain to be a huge influence to the overall classification.

The only individual time trial is scheduled for the penultimate day, featuring a 31km course finishing in Espelette. Following tradition, the race finishes in Paris on July 29.
