No prologue? Tour organizer ASO wanted to take full advantage of Corsica, the only region of France that has never previously hosted the Tour. With that in mind, they put together a first stage of 213km that runs through magnificent countryside. There’s little doubt that the stage will be anything but a sprint finish. This is a golden opportunity for the likes of Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma-Quick Step), André Greipel (Lotto-Belisol), or Peter Sagan (Cannondale) to claim the first yellow jersey of the 100th Tour.
