Tour de France 2024

The complete route of the Tour de France is to be revealed today Wednesday 25th October. While the starting and finishing points of the 2024 Tour de France are already known, the rest of the route of a 111th edition has been a bit of a casse-tete due to the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. The Tour will leave a week earlier than usual, on June 29, for three weeks of racing. Starting from Florence, it’s the first time that it leaves from Italy, a historic nation of cycling. In total, there will be three complete stages in Italy, the first of which is already very mountainous, before entering French territory into the Alps. The end of the route will be the unprecedented arrival in Nice on July 21st. The last stage will offer, instead of the friendly procession to the Champs-Elysées, a potentially decisive individual time trial between Monaco and Nice, climbing to La Turbie, then to the Col d'Eze before finishing at Place Massena in Nice after 35.2 km.
