Exploring the Tour de France in Google Earth

Exploring the Tour de France in Google Earth:
The Tour de France begins tomorrow and will cover nearly 3,500 kilometers over the next three weeks. As was the case last year, Cycling the Alps has some great tools to show you all of the stages in the 2012 race.


Along with all of the great features from last year, they've added a few more:

• A stage dialog where you can load each single stage.

• Complete 3D tours of the prologue and all the 20 stages.

• Stage profiles.

They still have the overviews and games that were included last year, making this an excellent site for learning all about the Tour and the 20 stages it holds for the riders. Check it out for yourself at
