Etape 2009


The 2009 Etape du Tour will take place in the beautiful Provence region of France, not far from the Mediterranean. It will tackle the fabled Mount Ventoux, the Giant of Provence, which towers nearly 2000 meters above the surrounding countryside.

By road, the start is easily accessible by motorway from the seaports, as the A7 passes close to Montelimar. The A7 also provies access to major airports.
