Running from Saturday July 4th to Sunday July 26th 2015, the 102th Tour de France will be made up of 21 stages and will cover a total distance of 3,344 kilometres (before ratification).
9 flat stages
3 hilly stages
7 mountain stages including 5 summit finishes

This 21st Grand Départ from abroad will also be the 6th from the Netherlands which is a record. The Tour will then spend two days in Belgium before reaching France.
A MINI PARIS – ROUBAIX
Like in 2014, the peloton will have its share of cobbled portions during stage 4 between Seraing and Cambrai. There will be seven sectors over a distance of 13.3 kilometres.
MUR AND MÛR
Two final climbs will spice up the first week of racing. First of all, the climb up the Mur de Huy (1.3 km at 9.6%), which is the traditionnal finish of the Flèche Wallonne, where stage 3 will end. Then, the climb up the Côte de Mûr de Bretagne (2 km at 6.9% with some passages at 15%), known as the Alpe-d’Huez of Britanny and already on the course in 2011, where the finish of stage 8 will take place.
L’ALPE-D’HUEZ ON THE PENULTIMATE DAY With its 13.8-km ascent and its famous 21 bends, the real Alpe-d’Huez will be the final showdown of the 2015 Tour with the summit finish of stage 20. A mountain top finish on the eve of the finish on the Champs-Élysées had already occurred in 2009 with the Mont Ventoux and in 2013 at Annecy-Semnoz.
