The Tour de France 2018 stages, designed for play with Flamme Rouge.

I have included all 19 standard stages, and the one team time trial stage, but have omitted the individual time trial stage (pending good ITT rules for Flamme Rouge). To create each stage, I take the last 70 km of each stage and try to break it down into flats, ascents, and descents, with each 1 km of real track equaling 1 space of FR track.

In addition to the letter tile sequence and stage image from the FR Companion app, I also provide the breakdown of each terrain section. The numbers indicate which space from 0 to 71 that terrain changes to a new type: F = flat, A = ascent, D = descent, and L = finish line.

Stage 9 and 20 require Peloton as designed. You can use homemade markers to indicate the changes to your base game tiles, like indicating where the no-slipstreaming cobble sections start and end (trying to indicate which spaces are single lane is more work), or alter the stage designs. The cobble on the real Champs Elysees is not that bad, but stage 9 really needs the cobblestone sections to be distinctive.

These tracks are designed to simulate the real Tour de France stages, rather than to produce the most interesting single stage tracks given the mechanisms of Flamme Rouge. However, I think they provide a variety of interesting tactical options. Rather than playing individual stages, I recommend playing a consecutive subset of the stages as a short Tour, or all 20 for a true Grand Tour.

For an easier attempt at a 20-stage Tour, I would suggest incorporating "rest days." If you're playing solo, allow yourself to remove half exhaustion rounded down after stages 9 and 15. If you're playing multiplayer, allow players to remove all exhaustion after stages 9 and 15.

I am providing Points Classification and Mountain Classification scoring for each stage based on Vincent's system (https://boardgamegeek.com/article/28684549) if you would like to track these for each cyclist in addition to General Classification and Team Classification using Benoit's Flamme Rouge Companion app.

I hope you enjoy trying these and I appreciate any feedback you may have.

No points - time only; team time trial rules

Team time trial rules:
1. Remove 1 of each starting card number from each rider's deck; keep exhaustion from previous stage.
2. Players play simultaneously on the track as normal, but riders from different teams do not interact - no lane blocking, no slipstreaming, no preventing exhaustion. Teammates slipstream and prevent exhaustion for each other like they were the only 2 riders on the track.
3. All riders on a team receive the finishing time of the rearmost finishing teammate: 1' per played card, minus 0:10 per ending space past the finish line of last cyclist.

The first hilly stage of the Tour, riders race across the flats along the coast, interspersed with many short but steep climbs. The breakaway group will face 3 hills: the Cote de la Roche de Feu, Cote de Menez Quelerc'h, and Cote de la montagne de Locronan, before one last climb in the town of Quimper to the finish line.

Riders enter the Alps for their first real mountain stage. After a steep climb over Plateau des Gières and its gravel road, the breakaway group completes the descent before racing across the flats to the final two ascents of the stage. First they must climb Col de Romme, followed by a short drop to the the Col de la Colombière. Riders then take a long descent to sprint to the finish line in Le Grand Bornand. First rider to top Colombière will have a good shot at capturing the victory.

A massive mountain stage with 3 huge climbs. Soon after finishing the descent of the first climb, Montee de Bisanne, the breakaway group starts of the double-peaked mountain of Col du Pre and Cormet de Roselend. With a long descent to Bourg-Saint-Maurice, riders must tackle the final arduous climb to the ski resort at La Rosiere. Expect those who are too exhausted to get dropped before the summit and create some time gaps.

A Classic Alps stage, the breakaway group finishes their climb over the Col de Croix Fer, and then descend for 30 km to the flats on their way to Bourg d'Oisans. They then face another summit finish, a 14 km ascent to the ski village on Alpe d'Huez.

After the first half of flats and rolling hills, the stage heats up in the last 70 km, first with a gentle climb up the Col de Portet d'Aspet. After a short descent, the route climbs back up the steep Col de Mente, which may create gaps in the breakaway group. A steep descent takes riders to a long flat section, giving them a chance to regroup before a gradual climb over the Col du Portillon. Summiting 9 km from the finish, the first riders to reach the top may be able to sprint down the descent to create a time gap from those still finishing the climb.

At only 65 km, Stage 17 is the shortest stage of the Tour and a great test for the true climbers to show their grit and make a final attempt at the GC.

The first climb is over the Montée de Peyragudes at 15 km, with a false flat that provides little respite before the final climb to the summit, and then a 2-part plunge down to Loudenvielle. The second climb reaches the flat Col de Val Louron-Azet, with 30 km left to race.

After descending to Saint-Lary-Soulan, the riders must tackle the monstrous climb to the summit finish of the Col de Portet. The 14 km ascent averages 8.7%, with a short false flat before the exhausted contenders may attempt a mountain sprint up the final few kilometers at gradients over 10%. Expect to see the GC contenders attempt to create some time gaps on their rivals, and this stage will likely decide who will carry the Yellow Jersey into Paris.

The last chance for the climbers to create some time gaps, this stage includes the iconic ascent of the Col de Tourmalet. Following its descent, breakaway riders face the long 3-stage ascent of Aubisque. They first climb to the Col des Bordères, and after a short descent they take on the hardest part of the ascent up to the Col de Soulor. After a short false flat, they mount the final peak of Aubisque. Following a 20 km descent, riders cross the line in Laruns. As in the past, expect the first riders over Aubisque to be in the best position to win the stage.
