The 2016 Tour de France will be the 103rd Tour de France. It is scheduled to start in Mont-Saint-Michel, on July 2nd 2016, and will also feature a stage finish Champs-Élysées, the central and majestic avenue of the capital where the final episode of the race is played since 1975.
The tour will be the first to be completed only on French soil since 1988. It will feature a final set of stages which have been described as "brutal", including three Alpine stages in the last week along with a "viciously hard" time trial.
