The 110th Tour de France runs from 1st to 23rd July 2023 over 3404 kilometers from Bilbao to Paris.
The route includes only a short individual time trial over 22 kilometers and a total of four mountain top finishes as the greatest difficulties for the top stars around the Danish title defender Jonas Vingegaard.
The preliminary decision should be made on the penultimate day with a mountain stage in the Vosges. This brings back good memories for two-time Tour champion Tadej Pogacar, after all the Slovenian had unbuttoned the yellow jersey from his compatriot Primoz Roglic in his first Tour triumph in the last time trial in 2020. The four mountain finishes await in Cauterets-Cambasque, on the Puy-de-Dome, the Grand Colombier and in Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc.
The Grand Départ takes place on July 1st in Bilbao, Spain, where a circuit awaits the drivers. The second stage also ends in San Sebastian in the Basque Country before returning to France.
