Tour de France 2013

The 2013 Tour de France is the 100th Tour de France. It will run from 29 June 2013 to 21 July 2013.

Del Woodford joins us in studio to talk about this years tour and we also speak to Paul Jesson - Paul rode the tour in 1979 and is a former stage winner of the Tour of Spain in 1979. A cycling accident left  him an amputee and as a NZ Paralympian Paul won a bronze medal in Athens in 2004, as well as being a double world champion (4000m pursuit and road time trial 1998 Colorado Springs),

The race will start in Corsica, in the city of Porto-Vecchio. The island will host the first three stages. Corsica is the only Metropolitan department which the Tour has never passed through and the organisers wanted to

combine the 100th edition of the Tour with the Tour's first ever visit to
Corsica.

The tour is to be the first to be completed only on French soil since 2003. 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.

These include a double ascent of l'Alpe d'Huez, the first time the tour will feature a double climb of this scale. There will be seven flat stages, five hilly stages, six mountain stages (with four summit finishes), two individual time trial stages and one team time trial stage covering a total of 3,403 kilometres . The Tour will finish at dusk in Paris.
