2 hr 49 min
Stage 1: Brest/Landernau (198 km, hilly)

Set in picture-postcard scenery, notably passing through Locronan and Quimper, this first day will offer no respite for the cyclists. With the constant accelerations after each of the frequent changes in direction, the wind-blown Monts d'Arrée and a finish at the top of a 3-km climb at an average of 5.7% and a section at 14%, the winner will have to have real punch.
Starting from Brest, subprefecture of the Finistère and stage town for the 31st time, arrival in Landernau, stage town for the first time.
