Tour de France

This is the page for the Tour de France 2024. The 111th edition starts on June 29 in Florence, and the finish is on July 21 in Nice. The Tour de France has chosen not to end in Paris this time, due to the Olympic Games being held in the French capital in 2024. The organization has prepared a lot of climbing and two time trials.

For the first time, the Tour starts in Italy. After the Grand Départ from Florence, the route moves through Rimini, Cesenatico, Bologna, Piacenza, and Turin before heading to France. This means immediate climbing in the opening weekend, with seven climbs on day one, the steep San Luca on day two, and only on day three, a serious chance for the sprinters. On the first day in France, we immediately climb the Galibier, reaching over 2,600 meters. It's a signal from the organization that there will be three weeks of climbing in the course.

Sprinters will find four opportunities in the first week, and on day six, there is a 25.3-kilometer time trial. Day nine takes us around Troyes, with a total of fourteen gravel sections, spread over 32 kilometers of unpaved road. After the first rest day, there's an immediate chance of wind in Orléans, before we offer opportunities for attackers in the Massif Central. After a sprint opportunity on day thirteen, we head into the Pyrenees, with the Tourmalet, Hourquette d'Ancizan, and Pla d'Adet on Saturday, and the Peyresourde, Col de Menté, Portet d'Aspet, Col d'Agnès, and Plateau de Beille on Sunday. Crazy!

The third week features climbing in the Alps, followed by a rapid descent to the south. There's also a potential echelon stage. With the Col Bayard, Col du Noyer, Superdévoluy, Col de Vars, Cime de Bonette, and the climb to Isola 2000, it promises to be spectacular. In the last two days, we race around Nice in Southern France. With the Col de Turini, Col de la Colmiane, and Col de la Couillole, we're presented with climbs familiar from Paris-Nice. And then there's the final day in Nice, for a change not a procession to Paris! Before finishing in the Southern French city, the riders must complete a 35-kilometer time trial, which includes the climbs of La Turbie and Col d'Eze.
