Stage 1 - Sunday, July 8: London - Canterbury, 203km

By Tim Maloney, European Editor

After a roll-out through London across the Greenwich Meridien where stage one officially starts, the peloton heads east along the Thames, then south across the North Downs and eventually back east across Kent to the finish within sight of the famous cathedral of Canterbury.

A rolling course that will favour an early break that will then be pulled back before the finale, where sprinters like Petacchi, McEwen, Freire, and Boonen will be looking for the first victory.

Km 183: Côte de Farthing Common: 1.1 km climb @ 6.1% avg. grade / 4th Cat.
