Unveiling the Five Stages of the Most Anticipated Race: Tour de France 2024

The highly anticipated Tour de France 2024, featuring mountain and gravel racing, is just around the corner. This year, after 120 years, the race will begin in Italy and conclude in Nice instead of Paris. This story will discuss the five most remarkable stages that make the race more challenging and thrilling.

Stage 4: Pinerolo - Valloire, 138km

The race will begin in Tuscany, leading to Turin and the French border. On the fourth day, the cyclists will enter their first challenging mountain routes, expanding for the Sestriere, the Col de Montgenèvre, and the Col du Galibier. The climbers would need to climb over 2,000 meters two times in this stage, making it exponentially challenging. 

Stage 9: Troyes - Troyes, 199 km

 Stage 9 combines efforts with tricks with the hilly path and white gravel to make it more challenging. Once the participants cross the border of France, the route will take them to the tricky track, expanding around 32.2 km.

Stage 14: Pau - Saint-Lary-Soulan Pla d’Adet, 152 km

After stage 10, which ends in Galibier, the 14th stage finally calls an end to the summit race as the peloton hit the Pyrenees. Pla d’Adet is the first of four summit finishes of the race. The 152 km extended stage 14 features two back-to-back climbs while leading the participants towards stage 15, which surpasses the valley. 

Stage 19: Embrun - Isola 2000, 145km

Entering stage 19 means the participants have come to the final days in the high mountain. In the stage, the cyclists will show their endurance power as they have to cover Isola, a 2000-meter expanded route that includes three consecutive ascents.

Stage 21: Monaco -Nice, 34km

After 1989, it will be the first time the Tour de France will end with a time trial. The exciting conclusion includes a short flat track followed by an 8.1 km ascent to La Turbie, and then a quick descent. After that, another bone-breaking climb of 1.6 km to the Col d'Èze and then enter the 17 km-based time trial.
