The 101st Tour de France will undergo its start in the northern-English county of Yorkshire, at first sight featuring some sprint stages. Looks can deceive when the weather conditions don't look too promising for the opening weekend of the Tour. The lovely Yorkshire valleys can suddenly change into tricky grey roads where an accident is around every corner. Op top of that, stage two looks to be too difficult for the real sprinters and when the GC-men kick some arse in the final, we might nog even see the likes of Sagan in the first ten finishers. London offers the well known Royal finale in front of Buckingham Palace, sure enough that will end up in a sprint.
