La Course by Le Tour de France, originally scheduled to take place on circuits at Mûr-de-Bretagne on June 27, has been shifted to June 26 and a route similar to that of the Tour de France stage 1 from Brest to Landerneau. 

The change, confirmed by ASO, was necessary due to the rescheduling of regional elections held on the same day in the Côtes-d'Armor department in Brittany, according to a report in Ouest France.
