The 2009 Tour de France presentation took place last week in Paris, where next year’s route was unveiled. Taking place from 4-26th July, the Tour starts in Monaco, passing through Spain, Andorra, Switzerland and Italy.
It’s set to be a more exciting route than 2008, with the final showdown taking place on the slopes of Le Mont Ventoux, the day before the race finishes on the Champs-Élysées in Paris.
