Stage 1 - Monday, March 7: Etampes - Chabris, 186.5km

The first stage from Etampes to Chabris is a fairly regulation sprinter's stage, with just one Cat. 3 climb near the start. With the wind often from the north at this time of year and therefore at the riders' backs, it could be quite a fast stage. Look for Tom Boonen (Quick.Step), Isaac Galvez (Illes Balears), Jaan Kirsipuu (Credit Agricole), Jimmy Casper (Cofidis), Angel Edo (Saunier Duval) and Robert Hunter (Phonak) to battle it out.
