2003 Etape du Tour -- Date Changed(3 posts)

2003 Etape du Tour -- Date Changedms
Dec 17, 2002 7:24 AM
The date of the 2003 Etape du Tour has been changed from July 20 to July 16. The course of the Etape will remain the same -- from Pau to Bayonne. My rough translation of the explanation on the official website is that the government requested the change because it could not provide police support for the Etape and a real stage of the Tour de France on the same day. Thus, the Etape now is on one of the rest days for the Tour (as it had been in past years).

I signed up with Gordon Baxter Tours to do the Etape. Wonder how this will effect my trip...other than the date change.
Yikes! That's the same day we're supposed to do Mont Ventoux ...Elefantino

I guess we have to decide one way or the other. In my case, I'll choose the Ventoux.

FWIW,
