    The Tour de France 2020 race route on Open Street Maps and in Google Earth, stage profiles and time- and route schedulesAs usual, velowire.com allows you to discover in detail the race route of this 107th edition of the Grande Boucle - an edition which is a bit particular in the current context related to the health crisis around the coronavirus / Covid-19, starting of course with the dates on which it takes place - on Open Street Maps/Google Earth now we're getting closer to the start of the Tour de France 2020.

    With the informations in this article you'll get to know all the details, all cities and towns which are visited by the Tour and in this way you can either prepare your visit of the race if you're one of the many (but most probably lot less this year than usual) spectators on the side of the road, or simply to better understand the race if you're not there!

    A little bit of initial information ...

    Some first precisions before we discover in detail all stages of the Tour de France 2020:

    - as for any contents on velowire.com, it is strictly forbidden to reproduce (or copy/paste) any of its contents in any particular form, as indicated on the copyright page. Please do respect the huge amount of time spent on preparing contents like these!

    - the stage profiles have been generated automatically based on altitude informations which are known for the places the race comes through; there can thus be some calculation errors but the global profile is correct!

    - access to the feeding zones of the Tour de France 2020 is strictly forbidden to the public in the current context; these are thus not indicated on the maps or in the time- and route schedules

    The programme of the Grand départ of the Tour de France 2020

    The race route of the Tour de France 2020 on Open Street Maps

    Let's now discover all details of the Tour de France 2020 race route, stage by stage :

    1/ Saturday 29 August 2020 - Nice > Nice - moyen pays - 156 km

    The first stage of the Tour de France 2020 will start and finish in Nice. This stage is called "moyen pays" since it explores the country side above Nice much less north than the following, the "haut pays" stage.

    This stage has a quite particular format, with two loops: the riders will first go off east to the north on the short loop. Indeed, in Aspremont they'll turn left to redescend towards Nice following the Var river. Once they've done this short loop a first time and once they've crossed the finish line around 3.11PM, they'll do it for a second time and finish it off with the intermediate sprint on the finish line in Nice when they cross it for the second time around 4.20PM. It will be followed by the grand loop, where they'll go up north to Levens before they redescend via Saint-Martin-du-Var and back to the finish in Nice which should be quite late on the day, around 6PM after around 4 hours of racing.

    • start : the start will be at Place Masséna in Nice (1.45PM), with the official start ceremony (as this is the first stage of the Tour de France 2020) on the Boulevard Jean Jaurès immediately afterwards (1.50PM till 2PM)
    • difficulties and climbs : Côte de Rimiez (3rd category) at km 48,5 and at km 97 - 5,8 km à 5,1% ; this climb will be just before the km 0 of the race and the two times it counts for the King of the Mountains classification are thus in the second short loop and early in the long loop
    • intermediate sprint : Promenade des Anglais in Nice at km 88 ; at the second crossing of the finish line
    • finish : Promenade des Anglais in Nice at the end of a straight line of 2 km (of which 800 m in line of sight) / width 6,50 m
    • visited departments : Alpes-Maritimes from km 0 till km 156
    • main cities : Nice, Aspremont, Tourrette-Levens, Levens, La Roquette-sur-Var, Saint-Martin-du-Var

    2/ Sunday 30 August 2020 - Nice > Nice - haut pays - 186 km

    This second stage will start in Nice at the same place as the previous one, but this time it goes off west and than north. A first big loop will be the main part of the stage and this loop goes up north two times further than the big loop of the previous stage, and turns east only at Rimplas in order to include the climb of the Col de la Colmiane before the riders redescend towards Nice in Saint-Martin-Vésubie via the Col de Turini. Back in Nice and initially without crossing the finish line, there will be two shorter loops on the east side of the city of the Grand départ of the Tour de France 2020. The riders will start with the biggest one, which will bring them - via the Col des Quatre Chemins - towards the Col d'Eze before they get back on the Moyenne Corniche and to Villefranche-sur-Mer going on through to Nice. After a first crossing of the finish line, they'll go on to the shortest loop which initially follows the same roads, but once they get on the Col des Quatre Chemins - which will be the Bonus sprint in this case - they'll get on an intermediate road which directly brings them on the road back towards the finish in Nice.

    3/ Monday 31 August 2020 - Nice > Sisteron - 198 km

    The stage which ends off the Grand départ will also start in Nice, but this time it'll be to get further away towards the north west. 3 climbs of the 3rd and one of the 4th category await the riders who will follow the Route Napoléon, before they get to the finish in Sisteron. Most logically this should be a stage made for the best sprinters of the peloton.

    The start of the next day's stage will also be in Sisteron and will visit the Dévoluy mountain area where the riders will find 4 climbs of the 3rd and 4th category before the first mountain top finish of this Tour de France which does comes quite early in this stage race. In Orcières-Merlette the riders will get to an altitude of 1825 meters and even though we will probably not see big time gaps in the general classification after this stage, it will definitely give us an idea of the shape of the main favourites of this Tour !

    5/ Wednesday 2 September 2020 - Gap > Privas - 183 km

    Not far from the previous stage finish, the riders will start in Gap for the 5th stage and it will pretty much go downhill. The two 4th category difficulties will probably not prevent the sprinters from battling for the victory at the finish, but the final part which is slightly going uphill might make it a stage for the strongest guys amongst them!

    6/ Thursday 3 September 2020 - Le Teil > Mont Aigoual - 191 km

    Close to Montélimar, the riders will come back together in Le Teil on this Thursday 3 September for the start of the 6th stage of the Tour de France 2020 with a quite rich final part. Indeed, even though the stage starts with only two 3rd category difficulties, the second one is indeed the first step towards the Col de la Lusette, much steeper and of the 1st category, followed by the Mont Aigoual where the finish of this stage will be.

    7/ Friday 4 September 2020 - Millau > Lavaur - 168 km

    The 7th stage will start in Millau which is definitely not at its first try with the Tour de France and of which its famous viaduct always makes a beautiful back setting for a stage start. This will be a slightly hilly stage towards Lavaur (which receives the Tour for the 3rd time as well already), and this stage's difficulty might potentially be in the wind which can lead to some breakups in the peloton.

    The first Pyrenean stage will start in Cazères-sur-Garonne, south-west of Toulouse, and even though the first 40 kilometers are quite flat, the 100 following kilometers will be explosive with first the Col de Menté of the 1st category, followed by the Port de Balès which is an outside category climb and finally the Col de Peyresourde of the 1st category which precedes the drop to the valley where the finish is, in Loudenvielle.

    The second and last Pyrenean stage will entirely take place in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques (64) department and offers a menu which is a bit less hard than the previous stage but which leads the riders to the Col de la Hourcère in the first half of the stage and the Col de Marie Blanque close to the finish (both of the 1st category).

    After a transfer of 430 kilometers (initially planned to be done by plane for the riders, it should take place by bus in the end), the riders can get some rest, after a first week which was quite fully packed, in the Charente-Maritime.

    10/ Tuesday 8 September 2020 - Īle d'Oléron > Īle de Ré - 168,5 km

    After the rest day a quite original stage is on the programme of the Tour de France 2020, since it will take place between two islands.

    While the Īle d'Oléron already had a stage finish, it'll this time be the start location of this stage which is exposed to the wind, at the Le Château d'Oléron. After a stage following the coast down to Royan, going in the swamp areas towards Rochefort before they get back to the coast up to La Rochelle and the bridge towards the Īle de Ré where the finish will be in Saint-Martin-de-Ré.

    11/ Wednesday 9 September 2020 - Châtelaillon-Plage > Poitiers - 167,5 km

    Starting on the sea side, in Châtelaillon-Plage, the dream of its mayor - Stephane Villain - becomes truth, to get the Tour back in the Poitou-Charentes area but most importantly in his city.

    This stage will be completely flat and with the finish in Poitiers, which Christian Prudhomme - the director of the Tour de France - qualified as one of the most beautiful straight lines of the Grande Boucle 2020, we'll most probably see a sprint finish.

    12/ Thursday 10 September 2020 - Chauvigny > Sarran - 218 km

    In the medieval city of Chauvigny where the start of the Vienne Classic Espoirs takes place every year, it'll this time be the start of the 12th stage of the Tour de France 2020 which will be on the programme this Thursday 10 September. It'll be the longest stage of this Tour which starts of with 3 difficulties of the 4th and 3rd category before the riders go on to the final part, with all these kilometers in their legs already, with the climb of the Suc au May of the 2nd category. The rider who arrives first on top of this climb not only takes the points for the King of the Mountains classification but also wins the bonus of this stage.

    After the inevitable tribute in Saint-Léonard-de-Noblat to Raymond Poulidor who is no longer among us but who elected this as his adoption city, the finish location of the stage - Sarran, the smallest town of the Tour de France 2020 with only 260 inhabitants - will be where a tribute can be paid to Jacques Chirac who chose to live here and who got the Tour de France here in 2001 for a stage coming from Castelsarrasin which was won by Jens Voigt.

    17/ Wednesday 16 September 2020 - Grenoble > Méribel - Col de la Loze - 170 km

    While the first half of the stage starting in Grenoble doesn't show any particular difficulties, the second half of the stage shows two outside category climbs! The first difficulty will be the Col de la Madeleine which has its top at 2000 meters and after the descent of this col, the final climb towards Méribel and the Col de la Loze will already be awaiting the riders. This brand new climb, a paradise for cyclists, with a route which was specifically created for cyclists only all year long (the climb is forbidden with a car), will be the rooftop of the Tour de France and it'll thus be on its summit at 2304 meters of altitude that the Souvenir Henri Desgrange will be awarded. This'll be an irregular climb with several parts exceeding a 20 % steepness.

    18/ Wednesday 17 September 2020 - Méribel > La Roche-sur-Foron - 175 km

    A quite heavy programme of difficulties is planned for the stage starting in Méribel. The kilometer zero of this stage will only be after 21.5 kilometers of a neutralised track. It is extremely rare that the distance between the fictive start and the kilometer zero is so important, but this is logical here due to the fact that all the way down from Méribel to the kilometer zero the road is descending and it would of course be impossible to have a running start in a descent because this would definitely lead to accidents.

    After the kilometer zero, there will be no less than 5 difficulties on the programme of this stage, including the magnificent Cormet de Roselend (1st category), the Col des Aravis (1st category) and the Montée du plateau des Glières (outside category), including a 1800 meters long gravel part. After the Col des Fleuries, which is not part of the King of the Mountains classification, the riders will continue downwards towards the finish line in La Roche-sur-Foron.

    19/ Thursday 18 September 2020 - Bourg-en-Bresse > Champagnole - 166,5 km

    For the sprinters who have managed to survive the Alps visit, this will be a new opportunity for a stage victory - among the rare opportunities for them during this Tour - in this 19th stage starting in Bourg-en-Bresse. The only difficulty of the 4th category will probably not prevent them to battle for the stage victory but they should pay attention all along, if they want to be part of those who can battle for victory!

    20/ Thursday 19 September 2020 - Lure > La Planche des Belles Filles - individual time trial - 36,2 km

    After a transfer of about 150 kilometers, the forelast stage will be -as often in the Tour de France- an individual time trial and this time it'll take place in the cradle of Thibaut Pinot (who was born in Lure and whose father is the Mayor of Mélisey which is part of the race route of this time trial), with a start in Lure. La Planche des Belles Filles has now become a usual climb in the Tour de France, because it'll be on the programme for the 5th time since 2012, but never before it has been used to measure an individual effort! This time trial could well come modify the general classification of this race, the day before the finish in Paris!

    Again after a transfer by bus (the health situation with the coronavirus prevents the riders from taking the plane for the transfers of this Tour), it'll be the last stage of the Tour de France which will take place this Sunday 20 September 2020.

    Starting in the Yvelines department, as will be the case untill 2023, Mantes-la-Jolie will have the role of host city for the start of the very last stage of this Tour de France 2020 which will end in Paris on its famous Champs-Elysées. This stage will go alongside the Sénat and will again, just like last year, visit the Cour carrée du Louvre to end up on the Champs-Elysées, turn around the Arc de Triomphe as has been the case every year since 2013 and the usual 8 laps on the circuit via the Rue de Rivoli and the final sprint on the Champs.

  2. Merci beaucoup. Je cherchais le fichier KMZ/KML ou GPX depuis un certain temps et je sais le travail qu'il y a derrière.

    | Nicthu | wednesday 26 August 2020 at 10:28:32

  3. Thank you very much for the KMZ file. Much appreciated.

    | John | friday 28 August 2020 at 3:26:07

  4. Désolé ce n' est pas un grand départ car les spectateurs en seront interdits.
    Un tour à huis clos, la bêtise de nos dirigeants atteint son apogée.

  5. Hi Thomas! The KMZ file seems to be corrupt - it does not seem to have contents. Is there a different link, please? I am trying to access this from the US.

    | Shyam Suyambu | friday 28 August 2020 at 14:16:10

  6. @Shyam #5 : as usual, there's always someone saying that but the KMZ file is perfectly fine. You just have to use it with the desktop version of Google Earth or any other application which can read a KMZ file which contains a network link.

    @aria #1 / @Nichtu #2 / @John #3 : avec plaisir / you're welcome :-)

    @pa51 #4 : il s'agit bien d'un Grand Départ mais dans un département classé rouge où aucun risque ne pourra être pris, il s'agit bien de la chance donnée à la course d'aller jusqu'au bout !

  9. Thank you @Thomas. I learnt a new skill from you today. Thank you for all your hardwork with this website. I like to ride tour stages using GPS on my indoor trainer, and your work is helping me a lot! Thx again.

  10. Where oh where is total vertical ascent and descent published? Anywhere?

  11. Merci pour ce travail minutieux, avec Google earth c'est un vrai plaisir. On réalise alors encore mieux l'exploit des coureurs, même les derniers !!!

  12. Bonjour,
    génial ce site avec le tracé GPS précis, ça permet de suivre les traces des champions ...

    | Satriani | thursday 17 September 2020 at 16:22:59

  13. Je me demandais s'il n'y avait pas une erreur de la direction du Tour de France (ou ASO) quant au classement de la catégorie des cols des Saisies et des Aravis sur cette cuvée 2020 ?
    En effet, dans la 18e étape, les cols des Saisies puis des Aravis sont classés respectivement 2nde et 1ere catégorie, alors que ça a toujours été le contraire les années précédentes (Saisies en 1ere et Aravis en 2nde catégorie sur ces mêmes versants).

    | Satriani | thursday 17 September 2020 at 16:27:54

  14. Bj
    Ou se fait le ravitaillement sur la 21 étapes ?
