July 15 will be stage 9 of the 2018 Tour de France, with the race being pushed back a week to account for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
It is not yet clear exactly what the stage will look like and how many cobblestone sectors will feature.
The last time cobblestones featured in the Tour de France was stage 4 of the 2015 edition, when Tony Martin won solo into Cambrai. The 2014 edition also featured a cobblestoned stage — stage 5 won by Lars Boom.
