Exact 2009 Tour route

Hi,
I see on the letour.fr website there is a high-level overview of the 2009 Tour route. However, I am wondering if they will also release an exact map, ie. showing what roads etc. the Tour will take.
I am planning on going to Étapes 13 (near Colmar) and 15 (near Verbier) this year and just trying to work out some good viewing spots. Is this something that becomes available closer to the time of the race?
Cheers
Campbell

They do have a fairly detailed profile of each stage on their website. It breaks it down into about 10km segments, and mentions just about every town they go through. Combine that with Google Earth and you should be able to figure out exactly which roads they are on. I've never seen a stage by stage map on their site.

Ditto to TOLOCOMan - I have never seen a detailed route of a stage race.

Google Maps/Earth and a GPS in your car and you are all set. Once you get close the race will find you!
