Arrival town for this Stage 1 of the Tour de France as it finishes in the internationally renowned city of Saint-Marie-du-Mont, best known under the name of Utah Beach. Having left from Mont-Saint-Michel, the Big Loop racers will reach Utah Beach at the end of a 188-kilometre Stage. The final part of the Stage offers no particular difficulties and should likely be played out between sprinters.

 

The choice of Utah Beach as arrival city for Stage 1 of the Tour de France is quite a symbol that both biking aficionados and roadside audience will appreciate.

Utah Beach and 4 other Normandy D-day landing beaches are competing to be selected by the United Nations Organisation to join the UNESCO world heritage list.
