The final transfer from St. Etienne to the last stage of this Tour de France, over 500 kilometres distance, will be done by French high speed train TGV on the morning of July 24. The riders, as well as three accompanying persons per team, will be taken to the local train station in special "Tour de France" branded buses - except German Gerolsteiner team, who will be walking from their hotel nearby.
