2016 Tour de France to start in Normandy. The 2016 Tour de France will be the 103 edition and will get under way from Manche Department, Normandy in 2016. The department has welcomed the Tour de France 23 times between 1911 (Cherbourg) and 2013 (individual time-trial from Avranches to Mont-Saint-Michel), but it has never hosted the Grand Départ before. . Here is the official route of the 2016 Tour de France.
The race departure from the world famous Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy on July 2 has been known already for a year, but that first 188-kilometer stage will also doff its cap at history with a finish at Utah Beach, one of the D-Day landing sites during World War II.
It’s a Tour described as “a sporting challenge in beautiful surroundings” by Tour director Christian Prudhomme.
The opening stage will pass the Bay of Mont Saint-Michel, which former U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower once described as the “most beautiful kilometer in France.”
Notably for the hosts, the finish to the 12th stage on July 14, France’s Bastille Day, will take place on the epic Mont Ventoux, a windswept, 15.7km climb that averages a punishing 8.8 percent gradient.
