Route description

The presentation of the teams took place the day before in Porto-Vecchio and on the 29 June 2013 the 100th edition of the Tour got underway with the Grand Départ from outside the Mayor's office in the centre of Porto-Vecchio. At 212km to the finish in Bastia at the other end of the island this was one of the Tour's longer stages. Before heading north however the peloton first headed south on a excursion that skirted the stunning bay of Palombaggia and down to the cliff tops that provide the perch for the town of Bonifacio. This is as far south as they went and a loop was taken with a few undulations back towards and then past Porto-Vecchio and on, to the plains and flat and relatively straight N198 east coast road.
