Le Tour de France – Brittany July 11th 2015

Saturday, July 11th – Stage 8 – 181.5km  Rennes / Mûr-de-Bretagne  

The path to the heart of Brittany on the roads of the Côtes-d’Armor area puts an end to a period made for sprinters. The candidates for a leading role will indeed have to take command of the race. The battle for seconds will witness a new fierce episode on the final climb that will this time be made even harder without a previous surge. And the gaps at the finish, even reduced, could have severe consequences.

Sunday, July 12th – Stage 9 – 28km   Vannes / Plumelec

In just two days, the Tour will be visiting the two major sites of cycling in Brittany. The final showdown will however be different with the climb up the Côte de Cadoudal coming at the end of a 28-kilometre team time-trial. This test of strength and moment of truth will be awaited with anxiety by the main actors of the GC, especially because the final uphill part could influence on the choice of strategy.
