Explore the Tour de France in Google Earth

Last week I shared a small collection of resources related to the Tour de France. Last night I fell asleep watching a replay of the day's stage. This morning I explored the Google Earth file of the 2015 Tour de France route created by Velowire's Google Earth map of the 2015 Tour de France includes not only the start and end points of each stage but also the intermediate hill climbs and sprints of most of the stages. Elevation profiles for each stage are also included in the file.

To find the Google Earth file about the Tour de France visit Velowire's page then scroll to the bottom and stop just before you reach the comments section.
