Starting in the tiny country village of Semur-en-Auxois, the first Friday stage of Le Tour 2007 heads south through the bucolic farms of Auxois into the famed wine region of Mâcon to finish on the flat roads of the Bresse region. Stage six will be the last chance for the sprinters for a while, and whichever fast-man wins in Bourg-en-Bresse will likely enjoy a tasty poulet de Bresse that the town is famous for.
