All eyes were on Paris this week as the 102nd Tour de France route was unveiled and it is one that will definitely go down in history.

Following this year’s grand departure in Yorkshire, next year’s event, which will take place between July 4th and 26th 2015, will see those hoping to be present at the start heading over to Utrecht in Holland for the opening celebrations.

The route will take the cyclists through Holland and Belgium, which will see the event commemorate the first world war as it continues to northern France, before travelling to north-western France, where it will finish in Paris at the Champs Elysées, to be exact.

For the first time in the event’s history, the ski resort area of Alpe d’Huez, in the French Alps, will be climbed in the penultimate stage.ADNFCR-408-ID-801756336-ADNFCR
