Tour de France director Christian Prudhomme presents the itinerary of the 2014 Tour de France cycling race during a news conference in Paris, October 23, 2013. The world's greatest cycling event, which will start from Leeds, England, on July 5 and finishing on the Champs Elysees in Paris on July 27 with 21 stages and a total distance of 3,656 km, features a series of much-feared cobbled sections in northern France, a treacherous crossing of the Vosges mountains and only one time trial.
