The route of the Tour de France 2014 has been presented today and the news is that the Vosges mountains will again feature in the race and in particular a summit finish at La Planche des Belle Filles - the site of Chris Froome's very first Tour stage win in 2012.

Tour de PEZ: Gord Looks Back

Two weeks ago, I was sitting in a departure lounge in Geneva airport. My Tour adventure over for another twelve months, I was priming myself to readjust to real life - since I got home, Wiggo's been on the front pages of every major newspaper in Britain, the headline story on every national news broadcast, congratulated by Queen and country. Now that I've decompressed from twelve days inside the Tour bubble, what stood out for me this year? A few personal observations...

Tour de PEZ: The British Rule In Paris

Roadside Finale: 'A L'Heure Anglaise' - the 'Hour of the English' says L'Equipe. There's a huge image on the front page of Bradley Wiggins punching the air as he wins yesterday's final time trial. Any thoughts we entertained of Froome running his Boss close or upsetting the band wagon were quashed with a time trialling master class from the Londoner.

TdF’12 St.19: Whirlwind Wiggins!

Race Report: Bradley Wiggins is one of the fastest time trial riders in the World, so today should have been a bit of a jaunt for the tall Englishman, he didn’t take that way and demolished the others to lengthen his overall lead before tomorrow’s last stage into the centre of Paris. I think now the fat lady has sung! Bring on the Champs Elysйes.
