It has been known for some time that the 2006 Tour de France will start in the eastern French city of Strasbourg, but Tour race director-in-waiting Christian Prudhomme has confirmed that next year's race will head into Germany after its opening days in Alsace.

Speaking during a visit to Austria, Prudhomme confirmed that the "2006 Tour will start in Strasbourg and some adventures in Germany are also expected." Current Tour boss Jean-Marie Leblanc said that seven German towns had offered to host the Tour next year.
