Stage town for the 2nd time, capital of the canton of Côtes-d’Armor and 7 260 inhabitants (Perrosiens, Perrosiennes)
Perros-Guirec has already hosted the Tour de France in 1995, for the start of a stage won in a sprint in Vitré by Mario Cippolini and at the end of which Laurent Jalabert had taken the Yellow Jersey thanks to the bonuses gained on the way, one year to the day after his fall in Armentières. For Cippolini, who had already won a stage in 1993, it was his second success in the Tour. Ten more were to follow.
The city has been on the route of most Breton stage races, such as the Ruban granitier breton, the Tour d’Armorique and the Tour de Bretagne, and hosted the start of a stage of the Tour de l’Avenir in 1993.
Stage town for the 4th time, town in the department of Côtes-d’Armor and 2 560 inhabitants (Mûrois or St-Guennains).
In ten years, the Côte de Mûr or Côte de Menez-Hiez has definitively become a classic of the Tour de France and has confirmed its nickname of “Breton Alpe d’Huez”. Since 2011, and the prophetic victory of Cadel Evans announcing his final victory in that edition, the Tour has twice come back to Mûr to crown punchers like Alexis Vuillermoz (2015) and Dan Martin (2018). This year, the riders will twice climb the hill, tailor-made for specialists of this kind of effort, among whom we cannot help thinking about Julian Alaphilippe. In 2018, the Frenchman finished 4th behind Dan Martin, Pierre Latour and Alejandro Valverde, all of them perfectly suited for this kind of finishes, as well as Primoz Roglic, 10th in the same place two seasons ago.
The sky is mostly mixed, alternating between very cloudy and clear periods. Some clouds may still give occasional showers. The risk is higher in the afternoon.
The risk of thunderstorms can be ruled out with the main activity still being over the eastern regions. Temperatures during the stage are 16 to 18 degrees. Wind at first from the North-East to the East between 10 and 20 km/h at the beginning of the stage, shifting rather to a broad South after passing the town of Saint-Brieuc, while becoming more and more sensitive, around 20 km/h in average wind, with peaks towards 40 km/h likely.

France will hold the presidency of the European Union from 1 January to 30 June 2022. Europe is all about the ties that bind our towns and cities with other communities and the people who call them home. Every day, you will find the names of the European twin towns and sister cities of the places that host the Tour de France.
