This format has proved surprisingly popular, perhaps there’s a big demand to ensure you don’t schedule pesky work meetings with the crucial stages? With this in mind each stage has a star rating, a subjective take on the stage’s importance to the race whether for the drama or likely importance for the overall classification. But as we saw last year on the road to Saint Amand Montrond, the most anodyne stage on a paper can come alive and even the rest days attract more media attention than most other races on the calendar.
If you really want to clear the diary note Stages 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 14, 17, 18 and 21 will be broadcast live from start to finish.
Save the ics / iCal / iCalendar file and you can import it into your electronic diary. One or two clicks and it’s on your iPhone / Outlook etc. Alternatively you can use the Google calendar below.
Just use +Google Calendar option via the link on the bottom-right of the calendar. Note this method works with Android phones when the iCal file might not.
Remember a similar calendar exists for all the main pro races for men and women and can be found at inrng.com/calendar.
