BARCELONA, 13 Mar. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The 2024 Tour de France moves away from the traditional finish on the Champs-Élysées in Paris and will end on the Riviera with two stages in which the champion could be decided, with a mountainous penultimate day and an unprecedented finish with the 35-kilometre individual time trial between Monaco and Nice.
The 20th stage (penultimate) of the 2024 Tour will leave Nice and reach the Col de la Couillole, in a short 132-kilometre stage with four linked mountain passes, while the last stage will be a 35-kilometre time trial with two climbs and arrival in Nice, the final stage of the gala round.
The French Côte d’Azur will begin to say goodbye to the Tour with a hard mountain stage. The Col de Braus, the Col de Turini, the Col de La Colmiane –Roglic won in the 2021 Tour– and finally the Col de la Couillole –Tadej Pogacar won there in the Paris-Nice 2023– could shake the general .
The 2024 Tour de France, which will start from Italy, will end in Nice in an atypical final individual time trial, which will be long (35 kilometers) and complete with the start in Monaco and the two climbs to La Turbie and Col d’Eze, before returning to go down to look for the sea to end up in Place Masséna in Nice.
The organizers of the Tour de France announced this final for 2024 in Nice, after the dispute of Paris-Nice 2023, in the presence of the mayor of Nice, Christian Estrosi, and Prince Albert II of Monaco.
