- Alexandre Vinokourov (Astana) won the Elite Men's event and the amazing Jeannie Longo won the Elite Women's event.

- Tour de France director Christian Prudhomme is in Les Herbiers today.  He was interviewed at length this morning on Radio des Nations (link at right) on multiple topics, including Alexandre Vinokourov (in the race today) and the reduction in TTs at the Tour.  On the subject of Vino, Prudhomme said "Vinokourov cheated, he served his suspension, and now he is back. That's life."  This might be an indication that A.S.O. may not try to bar Vino (Astana) from the Tour.  That remains to be seen and first Astana need to retain their ProTour license.  On the subject of TTs at the Tour, Prudhomme commented that TTs do not have the same role that they once had among overall contenders where good time trialists who lost time in the mountains made it up in the TTs while good climbers lost time in the TTs and made it up in the mountains.  Today, he said, climbers are good in the TTs and time trialists are good in the mountains.  He pointed to Fabian Cancellara as an exception and Cancellara unfortunately loses out with fewer time trials.

- Live video feed is buffering and comes and goes.  Live radio feed (French) is solid though, playing here without problems for several hours.

- The Elite Men's event is underway.  Start list and start times here.  (Alexandre Vinokourov scheduled to depart last.)

- The Elite Men's event (48.5km) is scheduled to begin at 14:56 CET (8:56am U.S. Eastern).

- The Grand Prix des Nations Time Trial ceased to exist a few years ago.  I photographed the last two editions of that event which was organized by TDF organizer A.S.O.  The Chrono des Herbiers was renamed the Chrono des Nations a couple of years ago, effectively merging the two events, though this is no longer an A.S.O. event.  Five-time TDF winner Jacques Anquetil holds the record of victories (in the GP des Nations): 9 victories in 9 participations!  -Pete

- 2010 Tour de France route details, videos, official poster design, etc. now online here.

- 2010 TDF presentation LIVE now.  Links at right.  Official site, Versus, and France3.fr streams playing here...

- France3.fr have changed their start time to 11:30 CET (5:30am U.S. Eastern).  Presumably this is now the start time for all live feeds.

- The 2010 Tour de France will celebrate the centenary of the first stage into the mountains of the Pyrenees, the Tourmalet in particular.  Indeed, the Tourmalet has seen a record number of ascensions in the Tour: 73.  The 2009 Tour visited the Pyrenees before the Alps and in keeping with the tradition of alternation, the 2010 Tour will visit the Alps first, setting up what should be a spectacular final week of the race in the Pyrenees.  So the 2010 TDF will be all about the Pyrenees and a lot of special coverage is planned to commemorate the centenary, including books on the subject.  One such book is already out, published a few years ago:


Tour de France: 100 years in the Pyrenees

- Most of the riders in attendance will be French but Lance Armstrong, Alberto Contador, Andy Schleck and Mark Cavendish are confirmed, as is Johan BruyneelBernard Hinault should be on hand for A.S.O. to assist in the ceremonies and other past Tour winners expected to attend include Jan Janssen, Bernard Thevenet, and Joop Zoetemelk, all present in Paris Tuesday when the French senate gave Contador a medal for his TDF victory.  The French "voice of cycling," Daniel Mangeas, usually introduces the speakers.  If you've ever been to a Tour stage start or finish, you've probably heard Daniel's voice over the loudspeakers.  -Pete

- The general route for the 2010 Tour de France was defined in May, the details were completed in September, and after race organizer Amaury Sport Organization (A.S.O.) reserved the necessary hotel rooms for the teams and race personnel, all that remains is to present the route to an invitation-only audience at the Palais des Congres in Paris...and, for the second consecutive year, to cycling fans online. -Pete


Each October, team bosses such as Patrick Lefevere (Quick Step),
left, and broadcasters such as Phil Liggett, join riders, sponsors,
media and special guests in Paris at the invitation-only presentation
of the next year's Tour route.

- More info and links to come before, during, and after the route presentation.

- The presentation is scheduled to begin Wednesday at 11:00 CET (5:00am U.S. Eastern) in Paris.  There will be opening remarks and speeches by a variety of officials, including A.S.O. president Jean-Etienne Amaury, Tour director Christian Prudhomme and local politicians.  There will also be award presentations such as the Jacques Goddet prize given to the author of the best article about this year's Tour de France.  There should also be approximately 12 minutes of video highlights of the 2009 Tour.  The actual presentation of the 2010 Tour route should begin at around 11:30 CET (5:30am U.S. Eastern).  Some live streams, such as Cycling TV's, are scheduled to begin at 11:30 CET.  Others are scheduled to begin at 11:00 CET.  -Pete

- The town of Bonneval (km 44 for the Elite race and start town for the U23 race) yesterday unveiled a Tour de France street as well as a Bernard Hinault pedestrian bridge.  No word yet on whether or not Bernard tossed anyone off the bridge. -Pete

- LIVE ticker:  Eurosport France ticker (Google-translated to English).  More tickers listed at right.

- Paris-Tours book:  As far as I know, there is only one published book about the history of Paris-Tours, written by my good friend Charles Guenard (French, 2005, with preface by former TDF director Jean-Marie Leblanc).  There is currently just one copy left at Amazon.fr though they say they'll get more.  If you're ever in Paris on a Friday, you can stop by Charles' shop and get a signed copy.  Cover pics below with more info (in French) about the book on back cover.  -Pete

- Race organizer A.S.O. always produces nice event posters, though this year's Paris-Tours poster (see below) is nearly identical to last year's.  Large race posters are displayed throughout start/finish towns and a limited number of smaller versions are often available locally. -Pete

Tour de Cycling - Saturday


Paris-Tours:  An early breakaway, late in the season.  Will it go all the way?
Copyright © Pete Geyer/www.cyclingfans.com

- Sunday Update:  Race is underway.  Our 2009 Paris-Tours Live Online Coverage Guide is here.

- Tomorrow, Sunday, is the 103rd Paris-Tours and there will be live video streaming.  The Elite Men's race will start in Chartres instead of the usual Saint-Arnoult-en-Yvelines outside Paris.  It will finish in Tours, on the Avenue de Grammont for the last time due to the installation of tramway tracks next year.  (There is also an Under-23 race.  It starts in Bonneval and finishes in Tours.)  Philippe Gilbert (Silence-Lotto) is defending champion.  No American has ever reached the podium; Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Slipstream), winding down a breakout season, hopes to become the first American winner.  We'll post our full 2009 Paris-Tours Live Online Coverage Guide before the start of live television coverage.
