Tour de France 2018 (Cat. 1, deadline on 7/7)

Post by emmea90 » 08/03/2018, 10:29

Contest #4 - Tour de France 2018
Image
Four months between us and the 2nd Grand Tour of the season, so it's time to open the 2nd Cat. 1 contest.

The second contest will be - of course - focused on "La Grand Boucle". Like the giro, the contest will be about re-drawing and improving Tour de France 2018.
- You have to keep Vendeé grand Depart with 2 days of racing in it.
- Of course you have to end TDF in Champs-Elysees. This means that stage 20 must end near the start or near a city that has TGV
- You cannot repeat key parts of Tour de France 2017 real stages
- You have to put a stage start or a stage finish in at least 7 different france regions (divided with the 2014 France law that reduced the regions in a total of 18)
- 2018 is 100 years after WWI end, so you have to remember it in at least two stages. (Yes, even there |berlu )
- 15 of july will be the date of Fifa World Cup 2018 final and the final will be played at 16.00 CET. Stage must end early on that day, so you can draw a stage of maximum 150 Km length if flat or hilly and 120 Km max if it's a mountain stage.

Like the other GT contests, you can have a maximum of TWO routes submitted for this one instead of five.

The Tour should be balanced, offering a "Dumoulin" and a "Quintana" the same chances to compete for the yellow jersey.

The Deadline will be on Satuday 7 July, when the first inline stage of Tour de France will officially starts at Km 0

You must submit your routes in this topic submitting the link. As stated in general presentation, you can submit from 1 to 3 routes. You can use this topic also for asking the question - we can answer question about climb / road / finish praticability but we won't answer to anyone's questions in private, only in this topic.

Everyone who will present the route also posting in the topic profiles and descriptions in this topic will start the voting phase with 3 points bonus

Good luck anyone

-------------------------------

Italian

Il secondo contest dei grandi giri sarà ovviamente sul Tour de France. Come per il giro il tema del contest è ridisegnare e migliorare il Tour de France 2018.
- Dovete mantenere il Grand Depart in Vandea con due giorni di corsa
- Ovviamente dovete finire ai campi elisi. Questo comporta che la tappa precedente deve finire o vicino alla partenza oppure vicino ad una città servita da TGV
- Non potete ripetere passaggi chiave delle tappe del vero tour 2017
- Dovete inserire una partenza o un arrivo in almeno 7 diverse regioni francesi (fa fede la divisione amministrativa 2014, su 18 regioni totali)
- Ci devono essere due tappe che presentino un passaggio commemorativo della fine della 1a guerra mondiale. (Sì, anche qua)
- Il 15 di luglio c'è la finale del campionato del mondo di calcio. La tappa deve finire presto, per questo motivo la tappa di quel giorno può essere lunga al massimo 150 km se piatta o mossa e 120 se di montagna

Come negli altri contest dei GT potete presentare al massimo due percorsi.

Il Tour deve essere bilanciato offrendo a un "Dumoulin" e ad un "Quintana" le stesse chance di vittoria.

La scadenza è il 7 luglio quando il Tour de France passerà il Km 0 della prima tappa.

The 3rd stage of the Tour is the TTT in Cholet. Thats outside the Vendee. Can I also use Cholet and Nantes for the third stage? Or do I have to stay in the Vendee?
And can I copy the first two stages in the Vendee like the Giro contest in Israel?

Thanks

Yes, for TDF it's definitely two and not three. So first two has to stay in and not three

Yes, you can copy, not forbidden to do that.

Hi,
When you say we can copy, does it mean we can keep a stage that is really scheduled in the official Tour's route like Annecy - Grand Bornand or Luchon - Col de Portet ?

Hi I present you now the first version of my remastered tour de France 2018 : maps/tours/view/8677

Stage 1:Noirmoutier-Les Herbiers/Mont des Alouettes
Image
Climbs: Mont des Alouettes(2.3 Km à 4.4%) x2
Sprint: Les Essarts (94.5 Km)
This first stage starts from Noirmoutier and back on the continent through the bridge and not by the passage of Gois (too risky) and then through the vendée before moving to the Mont des Alouettes 2 Times including one where is the first line of arrival of this Tour 2018

Image

Stage 2:Les Herbiers-La Roche Sur Yon
Image
Sprint: La Roche Sur Yon (106 Km)
this second stage starts from the town of Les Herbiers in the direction of La Roche Sur Yon with several passages in this city to finish on a sprint on a very short stage.

Stage 3:Cholet-Blois
Image

Sprint: Saumur (76 Km)
this third stage leaves the Vendée to follow the Loire until Blois where is the finish line which should see a Sprinter win but unless a runner manages to escape in the raid located at ten kilometers from the line

Stage 4:Pithiviers-Chalons en champagne
Image

Sprint:Nogent sur Seine (110.5 Km)
The fourth stage is this time totally flat between Pithiviers and Chalons en Champagne. This stage arrives at the scene of one of the most important battles of the first world war: The Battle of Marne (1914 then 1918).

Battle of Marne: Image

Stage 5:Verdun-Ossuaire de Douaumont (ITT)
Image

Climbs: Cote de Fleury (2.8 km à 4.6%)Image
Cote de Douaumont (2.2 km à 5.8%) Image
Intermédiates points: Charny sur Meuse (13 km) and Vacherauville (23.5 Km)
The 5th stage is the first and last ITT around Verdun city which was the scene of the mythical battle that took place between February and December 1916. This ITT is very hilly with no less than 3 climbs in 30 km.

Battle of Verdun: Image

Stage 6:Metz-Saint Dié des Vosges
Image
Climbs: Lacets de Fort Gérardin (3 km à 5.2%)
Cote de Dornot (2.3 km à 6.8%)
Cote de Prény (2.8 km à 5.8%)
Sprint: Brin sur Selle (90.5 km)
After a slightly hilly start, this stage brings the runners to the feet of the Vosges where hostilities will start the next day. In any case For stage 6 it will be a sprinter

Stage 7:Saint dié des Vosges-Grendelbruch
Image
Climbs: Col des Raids (3 km à 5%)
Col de l'hermanpaire (5.5 km à 3.9%)
Col du Champ de Feu (12 km à 6.7%)Image
Cote de Grendelbruch x2 (2.5 km à 11.1%)Image
Sprint: Saint Martin (45.5 km)
Finally a stage that promises movement. the Vosges stage present certainly has a small pass at the beginning but in the middle is the Champ de Feu which will allow a first selection before entering the final circuit with the terrible climb of Grendelbruch to fare twice in less than 15 km. Damage to be expected

Stage 8:Strasbourg-Porrentruy
Image
Sprint: Chalampé(94.5 km)
Another flat stage that will ensure the transition between the Vosges and the Jura. A sprinter should win unless a group of breakouts manage to resist on the slightly hilly roads of the final.

Stage 9:Montbéliard-La Chaux de Fonds
Image
Climbs: Passage de la Douleur (7.1 km à 6.1%)Image
Cote de Vacheresse (8 km à 5%)Image
Cote de Mont-De-Laval (9 km à 4.4%)
Col de la Courpée (6.3 km à 4.4%)
Cote de Braboux (1.6 km à 6.3%)
Col de Bieufond (8.3 km à 5.2%)Image
Sprint: Rosureux (63 km)
The Jura stage of this tour which is less than 150 km because it is the stage of the July 15 World Cup final day. However this stage will not be without interest with a lot of climb with few percentages but why not a good battle in the Bieufond pass

Rest Day: Aix les Bains

Stage 10:Aix les Bains-La Ruchère
Image
Climbs: Col de Granier (11.5 km à 7.3%)Image
Col de la Cluse (5.3 km à 7.4%)
Col des Egaux (2.1 km à 6.2%)
Col des Milles Martyrs (8.3 km à 6%)Image
Cote de Quaix (3.8 km à 7.7 %)
Col de Palaquit (8.8 km à 7.4%)Image
Col du Coq (12.7 km à 8.5%)Image
Col du Cucheron(4.4 km à 7.7%)
La Ruchère (5.4 km à 11.1%)Image
Sprint: Voiron (94.5 km)
FINALLY the first mountain stage. No big alpine passes but Big difficulties with the first HC of this tour de France with the Col du Coq which starts the final sequence ending 33 km further to the summit of La Ruchère, a wall of 5.5 km to more than 11% so one km to more than 19% !!

Stage 11:Vizile-Le Bourg d'Oisans
Image
Climbs: Cote de Laffrey (6.7 km à 9.5%)Image
Col de Malissol (3.1 km à 7.7%)
Col de la Morte (3.7 km à 7.7%)
Montée de Huez (13.3 km à 6.2%)Image
Col de Solude (11.2 km à 8.7%)Image
Sprint: Rochetaillé (71.5 km)
The second alpine mountain stage that ends in descent after only 127 km. However, the last pass has a top like the plateau des glières for a little more than 2 km before going on a winding descent to the Bourg d'Oisans. And again I do not speak of the percentages at the foot of the Col de Solude >_<

Stage 12:Grenoble-Digne les Bains
Image
Climbs: Col du Fau (20.3 km à 3%)
Col de Cornillon (5.4 km à 6.4%)
Col de Saint Sébastien (2.5 km à 6.2%)
Cote de Sautet (2.2 km à 6.7%)
Col Bayard (5.5 km à 4.6%)
Sprint:Gap (116.5 km)
We leave the Alps with a hilly Transition stage until Gap and then flat until the finish. It should go back to a Sprinter

Stage 13:Castellane-Mur des Courmettes
Image
Climbs: Cote de Démandolx (5.1 km à 6.3%)
Col de Toutes Aures (6.8 km à 3.2%)
Col de Laval (7.6 km à 3.6%)
Col du Buis (3.6 km à 11.1%)Image
Col de Bleine (5.9 km à 5.8%)
Cote de Gourdon (5.5 km à 4.7%)
Cote de La-Colle-Sur-Loup (2.8 km à 8.5%)Image
Cote de Saint-Paul (1.8 km à 11.8%)Image
Cote de Bar-Sur-Loup (1.1 km à 12.1%)Image
Mur des Courmettes (5.8 km à 12.1%)Image
Sprint: Route de Gréolières (83.5 km)
Who said we left the Alps? A stage of Middle mountain which stands out by the small dimensions has very high percentage of the final but especially thanks to the terror of the country of Nice: the Mur des Courmettes taken since the river of Loup which adds almost 2 km to 10%

Stage 14:Cannes-Marseille
Image
Climbs: Col du Logis (10.2 km à 2.7%)
Montée de la Magdala (6 km à 4.7%)
Col de la Gineste (7.5 km à 3.1%)
Sprint: Brignoles (100 km)
This shot we leave the Alps for good with a stage reserved for sprinters passing the climbs. Be careful, however, to fighters who could resist the return of the peloton in a difficult final

Stage 15Istres-Sète/Mont Saint-Clair
Image
Climbs: Mont Saint Clair x2 (1.3 km à 11.8%)Image
Combe d'Aubagnac (1.3 km à 7.6%)Image
Sprint: Aigues-mortes (86.5 km)
One would have expected a flat stage but no it will be hilly with the Mont Saint Clair 2 times where will be planted the finish line after a small odd between the two. Be careful to failures

Rest Day:Agde

Stage 16:Agde-Foix
Image
Sprint: Montréal (120 km)
A banal Transition stage that brings us to the Pyrenees for the final explanation

Stage 17:Saint Girons-Fontaine de l'Ours
Image
Climbs: Col de Portet d'Aspet (5.6 km à 6.8%)
Col de Menté (7 km à 7.9%)
Mont de Gallié (3.1 km à 9%)Image
Col des Ares (6.8 km à 4.6%)
Cote de Razecueillé (2.4 km à 7.8%)Image
Col Larrieu (4.7 km à 7.2%)Image
Cote d'Herran (4.5 km à 8.2%)Image
Fontaine de l'Ours (8.8 km à 8.9%) Image
Sprint: Chaum (61 km)
The first Pyrenean stage that does not have a large pass but the succession of short but steep difficulties will allow a first selection before the new climb of the Fontaine de l'Ours is happening on a straight road much like the Mur de Péguère. A good appetizer

Stage 18:Bagnères de Luchon- Luz Saint Sauveur
Image
Climbs: Col de Peyresourde (14.1 km à 6.8%)Image
Col de Val Louron-Azet (7.7 km à 7.7%)Image
Cote de Grailhen (2.1 km à 9.5%)Image
Hourquette d'Ancizan (10.4 km à 7.6%)Image
Col du Tourmalet (17 km à 7.4%)
Sprint: Cadéac (50 km)
This second stage is short, very short. But it has many famous passes with the Col du Tourmalet which for once will have a real impact on the race because the finish is located at the bottom of its descent

Stage 19:Argelès Gazost- Refuge de l'Abérouat
Image
Climbs: Cote d'Arras en Lavedan (3.3 km à 7.1%)
Col de Bordères (8.8 km à 6.2%)
Col du Soulor (7.3 km à 8%)
Col d'Aubisque (6.7 km à 5.1%)
Col de Marie-Blanque (9.4 km à 6%)
Col d'Ichère (3.8 km à 7.9%)Image
Col de Lié (2.4 km à 8.3%)Image
Refuge de l'Abérouat (9.4 km à 9.4%)Image
Sprint: Getsu (54 km)
And here is the last big explanation. this stage starts strong with a huge sequence from the start which will bring the riders to the top of the Col d'Aubisque. Then we have a phase of transiton with some small passes and finally the last ascent of this tour which is new again and a little like that of the 17th stage, steep and narrow

Stage 20:Orthez-Bordeaux
Image
Sprint: Mézos (84.5 km)
An ordinary transition stage bringing us to a city with the TGV for the last transfer to Paris

Stage 21:Meudon-Paris
Image
Climbs: Cote de Clamart (3.3 km à 4.1%)
Cote de Meudon (2.1 km à 6.2%)
Sprint: Issy les Moulinaux (41.5 km)
And to complete this TDF the classic step shortened to avoid falling into unnecessary length. A sprint and it's finish on the most beautiful avenue in the world.

here I finished my presentation and sorry for my English a little rough ;)

My Tour de France: maps/tours/view/8639

Regions with start/finish: Pays de la Loire, Normandy, Hauts-de-France, Grand Est, Bourgogne-Franch-Comté, Auvergne-Rhônes-Alpes, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, Occitanie, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, Île-de-France

The bigger picture:

Week 1 (Stage 1-9): Mainly sprint and hilly stages with an ITT in between and ending in smaller mountains in the Alsace (Grand Ballon).
Week 2 (Stage 10-15): The Alps (Alpe d'Huez, Mont Ventoux) with 2 sprinter/baroudeur stages. Task for the climbers: regain lost time from the early ITT.
Week 3 (Stage 16-21): Pyrenees (Pailhères, Aubisque, Tourmalet) & the climbers will need to attack to get a lead before the ITT in Lourdes

Further explanation in the spoiler.
Spoiler!
Stage 1

Image

A sprinter in yellow at the end of the day. A trip through the southwest of the Vendée.

Stage 2

Image

Image

A chance for the hill specialists to take the yellow with a sprint upon the Mont des Allouettes. (note: at one point the route seems to cross, but these are two 90° corners, so there won't be an interference)

Stage 3

Image

Image

Normally this should be a sprint stage. The climbs underway may disrupt the normal buildup however, so organization will be key. The côte du Gasseau will be a nuisance for sprinters near the end of the longest stage of the Tour.

Stage 4

Image

The first key point for the GC. An ITT with some height differences, passing Mont Ormel (a battlefield in WW2) and Camembert (cheese).

Stage 5

Image

A third mass sprint stage, but the end will be nervous. There are some minor hills on the way and the final kilometre goes up to 4%.

Stage 6 (WW1 remembrance)

Image

The final sprint stage for the first week and a lot easier than the previous ones. The route goes along the Somme, the scene of some of the most vicious battles of WW1.

Stage 7 (WW1 remembrance)

Image

Image

Image

Ending at the fort of Douamont, it's once again the turn of the hill specialists with a Cauberg-like finish.

Stage 8

Image

Image

Image

No immediate danger for the GC, but it could be a very interesting stage with the possibility of a large early attack that goes to the end, or a more organized attack from hill specialists. The Hengst climb is not very difficult, but the length will surely tire the legs before the Pandours.

Stage 9 (15/07)

Image

Image

The first mountain finish in this short stage. With the rest day coming up, an aggressive tactic could lead to a high-paced race.

REST DAY

Stage 10

Image

Image

Since most riders will prefer to rest before the Alps, an early attack might be the key here. An ambitious GC rider may gain some seconds with an attack on Pommiers, or maybe lose some if he's not placed well.

Stage 11

Image

Image

Image

Apline alert with the short, but steep, Champ-Laurent. An opportunity for downhill specialists.

Stage 12

Image

Image

Image

Image

If you're a climber with some downhill talent: attacking on the way to Chamrousse could be a good idea. The descent is very technical and if you have some company in the valley towards Le Bourg-d'Oisans, you can start the Alpe d'Huez with possibly a minute bonus. And Huez is always an interesting end.

Stage 13

Image

Image

The Alps don't last long in this Tour, but a back-to-back Huez/Ventoux finish should surely make up for that. If climbers didn't take their chances these days, they have to start worrying.

Stage 14

Image

A chance for a mass sprint, if the sprinters were able to save some energy and are still confident.

Stage 15

Image

Looks easy? Well, the route goes along the coastline so there's a big chance for echelons. With the rest day coming up, some teams may take their chances.

REST DAY

Stage 16

Image

Image

Image

Image

With the rest day passed, you can almost guarantee that a GC rider will have a surprise bad day and this stage could be the end of their yellow dreams.


Stage 17

Image

Image

The only stage outside of France, with a finish in Spain and passing through Andorra. Stage 18 isn't really a GC stage, so a brave attack is certainly a possibillity in this long stage.

Stage 18

Image

A stage for an early attack or, if some hill specialists want an Ardennes-like stage, a very spectacular last hour. GC riders will want to rest before the next two stages.

Stage 19

Image

Image

Image

Image

Shorst stage + final mountains + climbers who want an advantage on the last ITT = GC shenanigans today

Stage 20

Image

Image

Praying for a stage win, praying to hold the lead in the GC or praying for yellow: everything will be done in this tough ITT around Lourdes, finishing near the Basilique. TGV transfer to Paris.

Stage 21

Ecco il mio percorso.

Qui mi limito a segnalare che I due giorni di riposo sono collocati quasi uno a ridosso dell’altro, prima e dopo la tappa a cronometro individuale. Le singole presentazioni sono presenti, in due lingue, nella descrizione di ciascuna tappa


Here is my path.

Here I limit myself to pointing out that the two days of rest are placed almost one next to the other, before and after the individual time trial stage. The individual presentations are present, in two languages, in the description of each stage
