2013 Tour de France Route Announced in Paris

Riders in the 100th edition of the Tour de France will face an unprecedented double ascent of the iconic l'Alpe d'Huez as the race tries to move past the downfall of seven-time champion Lance Armstrong.

Prudhomme explained.

So the final stage of the 2013 Tour de France will take place at dusk in Paris - the city of lights. In another change to tradition, the eight laps of the Champs Elysees will send riders all the way around the giant Arc de Triomphe arch at the top of the grand avenue, rather than just passing in front of it as in past years.
