    The Tour de France 2024 race route has been presented: all things new between Italy and Nice, via summits, gravel roads and without any rest moment!It's early September, so a little earlier than in recent years, velowire.com is once again featuring the "rendez-vous annuel" article on the search for the route of the forthcoming Tour de France, based on rumours.

    In this case it's the Tour de France 2024 and the article is being published a little early because I was able to work on it a little bit earlier than usual and also because there are quite a few rumours that seem to be getting pretty solid already, compared with previous years.

    The official presentation of the route of the Tour de France 2024 as well as the 3rd edition of the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift (which will start in the Netherlands with 3 stages around the city of Rotterdam, during the first 2 days of the event, which this time will not start on the same day as the men's race, due to the Olympic Games) is scheduled for October 25 at the Palais des Congrès in Paris.

    In the meantime, this article is being built up bit by bit, and as usual, solely on the basis of fairly reliable rumours, putting on the side those that aren't (awaiting confirmation so they'll be included or not when they don't turn out to be true) ... and as usual, ideally we'll manage to build together the route of what will already be the 111th edition of the Tour de France!

    What we already know: an unprecedented start from Italy and a finish in Nice

    This 111th edition of the Tour de France is bound to be a little special, as for the very first time in its history, the Grand Départ of the Grande Boucle will be held in Italy (first three stages). Indeed, since the very first departure abroad, from Amsterdam to be precise, in 1954, and despite the increasing number of Grand Départs abroad, it has never been organized in neighboring Italy.

    The program for the Grand Départ will be classic, with the usual opening of the welcome desk and press center at theFlorence (Firenze) Opera House on Wednesday, June 26, 2024, and the presentation of the Tour de France 2024 teams in Florence (Firenze) on Thursday, June 27, 2024, followed by the first 3 stages of the Grand Départ.

    >> For more information on the Grand Départ in Italy, see below (stages 1, 2 and 3) or directly on The Grand Départ of the Tour de France 2024 in Italy: detailed maps on Open Street MapsAnother special feature that has already been officially announced is the arrival in Nice (last two stages), due to the Olympic Games, which force A.S.O. to take refuge in an area with a special link to A.S.O., Nice, because Paris will then already be preparing for the start of the Olympic Games, which will take place just 5 days later (the Tour de France 2024 ends on Sunday, July 21, 2024, whereas the Olympic Games start on Friday, July 26, 2024, with the Official Opening Ceremony (in reality there are already some events on July 24 and 25) and with the events actually starting on Saturday, July 27, 2024.

    In road cycling, the time trials take place on July 27, 2024, followed by the road races on August 3 and 4, 2024 (men first on Saturday, then women the following day).

    >> For more information on the finish in Nice, see below (stages 20 and 21) or go directly to The race route of the last two stages of the Tour de France 2024 have been announced: Nice, Col de la Couillole and Monaco on the map! (in this article you'll also soon find the detailed route of the stages in question on Open Street Maps)

    The route of the Tour de France 2024: what's certain ✅ and what the rumors are about the route of the 111th Grande Boucle!

    1/ Saturday June 29, 2024 - Florence (Firenze) 🇮🇹 > Rimini 🇮🇹 - 205 km ✅

    The first stage of the Tour de France 2024 will start in Firenze, where the atmosphere will be at its height as the city will have seen the Tour's circus arrive for several days already and will therefore be eagerly awaiting this real start.

    The first stage will be a mountainous one, with no less than 3,800 meters of ascent spread over 7 passes and climbs. After some 30 kilometers on the flat, the riders will climb a first group of 3 difficulties, with the Col de Valico Tre Faggi (12.5 km at 5.1%). Continuing in a northeasterly direction, they then take on the Côte des Forche (2.5 km at 6.2%) as they start to head south, where they have to climb the Côte de Spinello (7.1 km at 6%) before arriving at San Piero in Bagno. Up to Mercato Saraceno, they continue again in a northeasterly direction, and this section of the route is mainly downhill.
    This is where the 4 other short but steep climbs begin: Côte de Barbotto (5.8 km at 7.6%), Côte de San Leo (4.6 km at 7.7%) and Côte de Montemaggio (4.2 km at 6.6%) to start with, before changing countries. Then, downhill, the riders arrive in San Marino and, crossing the country from south to north, they climb the eponymous 7.1 km, 4.8% climb known as the San Marino Hill.

    After this last difficulty, there are still some twenty kilometers of downhill to go, until the finish in Rimini. The first yellow jersey will definitely be deserved by the rider who wins this stage!

    >> Consult the detailed route of the first stage of the Tour de France 2024 on Open Street Maps: Firenze > Rimini

    2/ Sunday June 30, 2024 - Cesenatico 🇮🇹 > Bologna (Bologna) 🇮🇹 - 200 km ✅

    The second stage, also official, starts in Cesenatico. It will be a simpler stage, albeit with a few shorter climbs.

    Initially, the course is completely flat as far as Faenza, and after 60 km the difficulty doesn't arrive immediately, as it's only at km 74 that the riders reach the foot of the Côte de Monticino (2 km at 7.5%), which, after the descent to Riolo Terme, is immediately followed by the Côte de Gallisterna (1.2 km at 12.8%).

    After the descent to Imola, where the riders pass the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari circuit, it's downhill again, followed by a long, flat straight until just before San Lazzaro di Savena, where the race turns left to reach the Botteghino di Zocca hill (1.9 km at 6.8%). On the way back to San Lazzaro di Savena, a new difficulty appears, the Côte de Montecalvo (2.7 km at 7.7%).

    After the first crossing of the finish line, there are 2 more laps of an 18.5 km circuit awaiting the riders. On this circuit, they will have to climb (twice) the Côte de San Luca (1.9 km at 10.6%), a well-known feature of the Tour of Emilia-Romagna (Giro dell'Emilia), which has its finish there.

    According to the local newspaper Il Resto del Carlino, negotiations are currently underway between the local organizing committee and Amaury Sport Organisation, organizer of the Tour de France, to bring the stage to Forlì ... and more specifically to place an intermediate sprint in front of the house of Ercole Baldini (winner of the Tour of Italy, his best finish in the Tour de France was 6th in 1959), who died on December 1, 2022. The fulfillment of this wish would pay tribute to one more rider, alongside Coppi, Bartali, Bottecchia (the first Italian rider to win the Tour de France 100 years earlier, in 1924 and 1925) and Pantani, whose imprint can already be seen on the Grand Départ route!

    >> Consult the detailed (actual) route of the second stage of the Tour de France 2024 on Open Street Maps: Cesenatico > Bologna

    3/ Monday, July 1, 2024 - Piacenza 🇮🇹 > Torino 🇮🇹 - 225 km ✅

    The third stage, the last of the Grand Départ of the Tour de France 2024, will take place between Piacenza and Turin (Torino), and this time it will be a real sprinter's stage. Indeed, the route is generally flat, and as it heads west, the 3 small climbs (including the Côte de Tortone, in homage to Fausto Coppi, who died in Tortone) will not prevent the sprinters' teams from organizing themselves for a massive sprint finish.

    >> Consult the detailed route of the third stage of the Tour de France 2024 on Open Street Maps: Piacenza > Torino

    4/ Tuesday, July 2, 2024 - Pinerolo 🇮🇹 ??? > Valloire or Valmeinier or Col de la Croix de Fer ????

    The start of stage 4 is one of the first elements not officially announced. At the time of the official announcement of the Grand Départ of the Tour de France 2024, one potential location was mentioned for the start of this 4th stage, Pinerolo (which has seen an arrival and departure in 2011; from Gap for the arrival and to Galibier Serre-Chevalier for the departure). While Voce Pinerolese regrets that Pinerolo has not been included on the official map of the Grand Départ, I believe that this does not rule out the possibility of the 4th stage starting from the Italian town. Indeed, when Amaury Sport Organisation announces the Grand Départ of a future Tour de France, it usually only concerns the first 3 stages, and not necessarily the finish of the last of these 3. Usually, the Grand Départ covers the start and finish of the first 2 stages and the start of stage 3, as was the case for the Grand Départ in the Spanish Basque Country in 2023, for example. Even if the town, which lies some forty kilometers from Turin, isn't on the already official map of the Grand Départ of the 2024 Tour de France, that doesn't mean it won't be the starting town for this 4th stage.

    As for the arrival of this stage, not much information has filtered through, but Valloire seems to be holding the line, as Vince and Bleu073 point out in the comments on this site (on the article about the Grand Départ). Vince even specifies that the finish would be at the hamlet of Les Verneys. However, the Tour could also opt for Valmeinier, for a finish at altitude, or even the Col de la Croix de Fer, which was tested as a finish on the Critérium du Dauphiné on stage 7 this year.

    5/ wednesday july 3, 2024 - ???? > ???

    6/ thursday july 4, 2024 - ???? > ???

    7/ friday july 5, 2024 - ???? > ???

    No information on the 5th, 6th and 7th stages yet.

    8/ saturday july 6, 2024 - ???? > finish in Côte d'Or; Beaune or Dijon?

    At the beginning of June, Le Bien Public reported that François Sauvadet, President of the Côte-d'Or Departmental Council, had been informed by Christian Prudhomme that the Tour de France would be returning to the region in 2024 for the first time since 2017, stopping off for several days ... one of the Tour de France's longest ever visits to a department!.

    On the evening of the publication of this article, the President of the Departmental Council repeated these same words in a tweet:
    Another article in Le Bien Public followed up on this information, when Catherine Louis, vice-president of the Côte-d'Or departmental committee, explained at the presentation of the Tour de Côte-d'Or that François Sauvadet had arranged for the Tour de France to pass through Côte-d'Or in 2024.

    The paper went on to mention a finish, a rest day, a time trial and a stage start, and that's the option we're presenting here at this stage too. However, we're not saying that there will be a stage start and/or finish in the department over the 4 days, only that it will be "passed through" (can we talk about passing through for a rest day?). In between, France 3 Bourgogne-Franche-Comté had already specified the towns and stages on June 10, first recalling that the Mayor of Dijon, François Rebsamen, wanted the Tour to pass through the city during his term of office. France 3 then indicated that Dijon is indeed a candidate and would like to be the starting or finishing town, or both, bearing in mind that this hasn't happened since 1997.

    For the finish in the department, the channel's sports journalist then mentioned an arrival in Beaune or Dijon. And more recently, in Le Bien Public, the Mayor of Dijon stated that the riders would sleep in Dijon... This does seem logical in view of the city's hotel capacity, but for the time being, I haven't found any major hotel reservations for these dates...

    9/ Sunday July 7, 2024 - time trial in Côte d'Or ? - Dijon > Prenois

    For the stage on Sunday July 7, France 3 reported a time trial between Dijon and Prenois, with the latter finishing at the race track. If confirmed, this would be a time-trial of around 15 to 20 kilometers, with the possibility of varying the distance, either by changing the starting point in Dijon or by adding distance with a detour from the most direct route.

    R1/ Monday July 8, 2024 - rest day in Côte d'Or

    After this first long week of the Tour de France 2024, the riders and followers would rest in the Côte-d'Or department on Monday July 8.

    10/ Tuesday July 9, 2024 - MuséoParc Alésia (Alise-Sainte-Reine) > Saint-Amand-Montrond

    Again according to France 3, there will be a final stage start from the Côte-d'Or at the MuséoParc Alésia in Alise-Sainte-Reine.
    France 3 reports a hilly stage with white roads towards Troyes. However, the finish of stage 10 on July 9, 2024 is announced by Le Berry Républicain to be in Saint-Amand-Montrond. At this stage, I'm combining these two pieces of information, skipping the finish in Troyes, but perhaps there's a mistake in the date somewhere, and the start of this stage could then be elsewhere, while the MuséoParc Alésia might indeed see a stage heading for Troyes ... to be continued!

    Le Journal du Centre mentions a crossing of the Nièvre and a time trial bid for the Nevers-Magny-Cours circuit, but there's little chance of this materializing in 2024.

    11/ Wednesday July 10, 2024 - Cournon-d'Auvergne ???? > Le Lioran or Puy Mary ????

    After Saint-Amand-Montrond, the newspaper La Montagne mentions the possibility of a departure from the commune ofEvaux-les-Bains in an article that actually refers to the extremely low probability of a departure from this commune. The commune's mayor himself points to a departure from Cournon-d'Auvergne, a town adjacent to Clermont-Ferrand and part of the Clermont Auvergne Métropole metropolis. Even though this town seems rather far from Saint-Amand-Montrond (~ 150 km) and the Clermont area has already been well served by the Tour de France 2023, I'm therefore initially putting this town as the starting town for this 11th stage.

    In this article, as in another from La Montagne, there is talk of a finish at either Le Lioran or Le Puy Mary for this stage.
    For Le Lioran, this would be a return for the first time since 2016 and the victory of Greg van Avermaet, while for Le Puy Mary it was a little more recently, in 2020, that a finish took place there, with the victory of Daniel Martinez.

    12/ Thursday July 11, 2024 - Aurillac ???? > ???

    Again in the La Montagne newspaper, the 12th stage is scheduled to start from Aurillac on Thursday, July 11, 2024. Hotels have already been booked in Aurillac for the evening of July 10.

    As for the finish of this stage, it remains more vague at this stage, even if Centre Presse Aveyron evokes a few leads on the basis of bids, but without much conviction and without one really emerging.

    The newspaper mentions Saint-Affrique and the surrounding region, to mark the 100th anniversary of the Roquefort PDO (although the Roquefort appellation of origin dates back to 1925), Villefranche-de-Rouergue, Millau and Decazeville. So there are still plenty of possibilities ...

    13/ Friday July 12, 2024 - Pyrenees ???

    Logic would dictate that the Pyrenees would be next, even if we seem to be a long way and would thus need a major move to the Pyrenees at this point ... According to La Nouvelle République des Pyrénées, in 2024 the Tour should pass through the eastern side of the Hautes-Pyrénées département (which is indeed logical, given that the west has been in the spotlight this year).

    When we speak of the Pyrenees, we inevitably think of Pau, as the city is often used as a "base" for Pyrenean stages. However, there's no obligation to do so, and so far the only article mentioning Pau for the Tour de France 2024 is in La République des Pyrénées, which reports that Josy Poueyto, MP and "Madame Tour de France", is eagerly awaiting October 25 to discover the precise route of the 111th edition of the Tour de France.

    As for hotel reservations, even if instinctively I see the Tour de France 2024 further east at that point, I note that hotels are already booked in Pau for the evenings of July 11, 12 and 13, 2024, and that the same is true for Lourdes and Tarbes for the evenings of July 12 and 13, 2024.

    14/ Saturday July 13, 2024 - Pyrenees ??? - arrival at the Plateau de Beille ??

    In 2022, it looked as if the stage would return to Plateau de Beille for a finish in the Ariège Pyrenees. Indeed, in November 2022, La Dépêche even spoke of a sure thing, and at the same time raised the possibility of a possible departure from Ariège the following day.

    As far as Plateau de Beille is concerned, the site has been redone, at a cost of 8.5 million euros, to make people forget the old buildings dating from 1989-1990. This would be the 7th visit for the Tour de France, after the first in 1998, preceded by the Route du Sud (since renamed the Route d'Occitanie) in 1995. The last visits were in 2011 and 2015, starting from Saint Gaudens and Lannemezan respectively. However, a fire that partially destroyed the brand-new building in April 2023 could jeopardize this arrival, with reconstruction of the building scheduled for completion in September/October 2024.
    However, even if this doesn't allow the race to showcase a brand-new building offering all the services on the Plateau de Beille, the Tour's spotlight in 2024 could still help bring back tourists from 2025 onwards, when the building is ready again. It's less of a certainty, but it's far from impossible!

    15/ Sunday July 14, 2024 - departure from ARIEGE ???? > Carcassonne or Narbonne ???

    Evoked as a possibility by La Dépêche, it is therefore highly likely that this 15th stage, on this National Holiday, will start from the Ariège, but at this stage there are no further rumors about the exact starting point of this stage.

    As for the finish, L'Indépendant mentions a possible arrival in Carcassonne, while pointing out that two factors seem to indicate the contrary: the logistical difficulty of organizing such an arrival on the same day as the biggest fireworks display of the national holiday, which is organized every year in Carcassonne, and the fact that Carcassonne has indeed applied, but for the Tour in 2025 and not in 2024.

    As for the logistical challenge of the fireworks display, the newspaper points out that there has already been a stage finish for the Tour de France in Carcassonne on July 14, 2006, so it's not totally impossible.

    The newspaper reports that hotels have already been booked by the organization in the Carcassonne area, although it points out that this does not mean that Carcassonne will win the jackpot. As Bernard pointed out in the comments on the article about the Grand Départ, La Dépêche announced early 2022, that the town of Narbonne would like to host the Tour de France. Jacques Pairo, deputy mayor in charge of sports, explained that Narbonne had submitted a new application to be a stage town in 2023 or 2024. It is therefore possible that the Tour will return to Narbonne for the first time since 2008, and I am therefore provisionally listing this town as a possible finish for this stage.

    R2/ Monday July 15 - rest day in Carcassonne?

    The second rest day is scheduled for Monday July 15, so it's possible that the Tour will land in Carcassonne on this occasion.

    16/ Tuesday July 16 - Carcassonne > area around Montpellier, Nîmes, Arles?

    Leaving from the Carcassonne area, the Tour de France 2024 should then begin to approach the Southern Alps, for which a full program is announced before the final finish in Nice.

    In this context, Montpellier's candidacy, mentioned by the Hérault Tribune early 2022, for 2024 or 2025, depending on the progress of work on the Bustram network and tramway line 5, is just around the corner. This would enable the race to start moving eastwards, even if the distance to the Southern Alps is still considerable if this route is confirmed. It's therefore possible that the stage will "push a little further" for the finish of this stage, to be somewhere in the area around this town, Nîmes and Arles. For the moment, nothing seems to have been decided about the finish of this stage!

    17/ Wednesday July 17, 2024 - ???? > Super Dévoluy

    For the start of this 17th stage, we're in the same situation as for the finish of the 16th, so we're still in the dark for the time being. If we push to the limit the possibility of a finish in the Montpellier/Nîmes/Arles area on July 16, we could imagine a start in places like Avignon/Orange/Bagnols-sur-Cèze/Bollène/Carpentras/Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux, some of those names not being unfamiliar to A.S.O. races.

    As far as the finish of this stage is concerned, and for the stages that follow, it was BFM TV that first mentioned 4 emblematic locations in the Southern Alps on July 18 (before that, there was a "pot pourri" article in another publication mentioning all sorts of possibilities in the Southern Alps, without really positioning itself, so I'm not considering it among the sources here), mentioning in its TV report an arrival in Dévoluy, a departure from Gap, an arrival in Barcelonnette and a departure from Embrun.

    A few days later, on July 17, BFM TV published an article providing further details, in particular mentioning that the 17th stage would arrive in Super-Dévoluy on Wednesday, from the Drôme.

    The newspaper La Provence picked up on this information the following day, and indicated that it could confirm it. The paper interviewed Jean-Marie Bernard, President of the Hautes-Alpes Departmental Council, who was quoted as saying: I have guarantees from the organizers that the Tour de France 2024 will spend a fair amount of time in the department. Although La Provence seems more cautious about the level of certainty of this information, the newspaper confirms the various leads mentioned by BFM TV as being the most likely.

    A day later, Le Dauphiné also mentions this passage, remaining very vague and only reporting the words of the same Jean-Marie Bernard: We hope to have one or two stages in the last week of next year, and mentioning the Dévoluy bid, which seems to be on the right track...

    The article (republished on numerous occasions) indicated by many as the source of this information therefore only seems to repeat the information revealed by BFM TV and is thus not mentioned here as being the source.

    18/ Thursday July 18, 2024 - Gap > Barcelonnette

    Again based on information from BFM TV, this Thursday there will be a stage departing from Gap and arriving in Barcelonnette.

    19/ Friday, July 19, 2024 - Embrun > Isola 2000 / ALPES MARITIMES

    Cime de la Bonette RestefondFor the 19th stage, BFM TV reports a start from Embrun, which is no stranger to the Tour de France, since 6 starts have already been organized there, in 1973, 2008 (x2), 2013, 2017 and 2019, and 5 years later the Tour would be back!

    According to BFM TV, this stage would pass over the Col de Vars before tackling Europe's highest road, the cime de la Bonette (2.802 m, making it the roof of the Tour de France 2024, for the first time since 2008*, see photo), to reach Auron or Isola.

    * This time, however, with an ascent on the other side, from the north, and not for a stage finish, but in transit to the finish.

    The Col de Vars would be just over 30 km into the stage, while the summit of the Bonette would be reached some 40 km further on. In its umpteenth article based on information from BFM TV, radio station DICI opts for an Isola 2000 finish, but without specifying why the station would hold the line. With this, we'd have a stage of barely 130 km, and we'd still be a long way from Nice, the starting town for the next day's stage, which would return to virtually the same area.

    At this stage, I wouldn't rule out the possibility that the finish of this stage could be further south in the Alpes-Maritimes...

    20/ Saturday July 20, 2024 - Nice > Col de la Couillole - 132 km ✅

    Starting with this 20th stage, we're back to information that was officially announced, exceptionally, as part of the unprecedented arrival of the Tour de France 2024 in Nice.

    Indeed, in 2024, the Tour de France will arrive for the first time since 1975 elsewhere than on the Champs-Elysées in Paris, because of the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, which will start just one week later. The penultimate stage will have its start in Nice and it will be a final mountain stage for this 111th edition of the Tour de France. This short stage, similar to those at the end of Paris-Nice, takes place entirely in the Alpes-Maritimes department (06). It will start on the flat to reach the hinterland of Nice, where the riders will have to climb the Col de Braus (1.002 m), the Col de Turini (1,607 m) and, after a short passage through the valley and the sprint to Saint-Martin Vésubie (923 m), the Col de la Colmiane (1,500 m). After the long descent, it will be time to tackle the final climb, the Col de la Couillole, which was already on the program of the penultimate stage of Paris-Nice 2023, won by Slovenian Tadej Poga?ar (UAE Team Emirates)!

    >> Consult the route of the twentieth stage of the Tour de France 2024: Nice > Col de la Couillole, with a detailed map coming soon on Open Street Maps.

    21/ Sunday, July 21 - Monaco 🇲🇨 > Nice - individual time trial - 35.2 km ✅

    To close this Tour de France 2024, a long individual time trial is on the program, making the overall classification of this 111th edition potentially uncertain right until the end!

    Each of the riders will therefore start individually from Monaco, as they did for the very first stage in 2009 (but then it was a time trial with start and finish in Monaco). They'll climb up to La Turbie and then to the Col d'Eze (which they know well from Paris-Nice) before heading back down to Nice for a round trip along the Promenade des Anglais before the finish at Place Masséna, which is not the usual finish on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice.

  2. Encore bravo a tous ceux qui ont contribue a ce site cette annee encore, nottament Pierre ''la legende'' Lacoue.

    En regardant le parcours, et vu le systeme de points actuels, le plus probable c'est qu'il sufira a un coureur de passer en tete au sommet du Galibier (ce qui n'est certes par simple) pour garder le maillot a pois jusqu'au Lioran minimum, probablement jusqu'a Pau. C'est vraiment un gros desequilibre.

  3. @Yoshi45 Sans vouloir aller dans l'analyse du parcours qui au final est très propre à chacun (je suis un grand partisan du Tour sans Haute Montagne par exemple), c'est un commentaire très juste. Je m'étais amusé une fois à regarder le nombre de jours avec le maillot porté par les vainqueurs des différents classements (Analyse de 2012 à 2022 mais 2023 me semble dans la norme) :

    - Moyenne de jours en Jaune par le vainqueur final : 11. Hormis les Tours de 2020 et 2019 avec 2 et 3 jours, on est quasi toujours à plus de 10 jours en Jaune...

    - Moyenne de jours en Vert : 16 jours !! Sur ces 11 éditions, 7 n'ont connu qu'un changement de leader (ou du moins 2 leaders différents).

    - Moyenne de jours à Poix : 6. C'est le classement le plus disputé qui a connu jusqu'à 9 porteurs différents.

    Ces classements annexes participent complétement à la dynamique de la course et pour moi il est important de ne pas les oublier. J'aime rappeler qu'un Grand Tour c'est 22 équipes au départ et que dans l'idéal chacune doit pouvoir avoir une part du gâteau (on est pas dans un match de foot où juste 2 équipes s'opposent) non seulement pour l'aspect sportif mais aussi financier quand on sait les retombées qu'un bon Tour peut faire pour une équipe.

  5. Merci et félicitations à Thomas. Beaux petits moments passés sur ce site
    chaque année entre août et octobre.
    Contrairement à Richard Plugge, manager de Jumbo-Visma, je ne trouve pas l'étape
    Troyes-Troyes, ridicule.. bien au contraire. En effet:
    - ce type d'étape permet une sélection et un intérêt dans des régions de moins
    en moins visitées par le Tour, car ne comportant que peu de relief…. et du fait des oreillettes,
    plébiscitées par les directeurs sportifs, il en résulte des étapes soporifiques .
    Il y a du potentiel de ce type ( pavés, chemins blancs, etc) en France dans des régions comme le Nord ( pavés), la Bretagne
    (ribinous), Vendée (passage du Gois), Touraine (autres chemins de vigne) que le Tour devrait donc plus souvent exploiter…potentiel d'ailleurs déjà exploité par d'autres courses cyclistes et même par le Tour ( pavés et passage du Gois)… et on pourrait donc ainsi voir un Tour de LA France et non un Tour rivé presque uniquement sur les massifs montagneux.
    - ce type de chemin semble de plus en plus à la mode, emprunté même par des cyclistes amateurs «  lambda «  de tous âges , surtout le week-end.. donc accepté par de plus en plus de monde.
    - ce type de chemin n'est pas plus dangereux et ne provoquera pas plus de chutés graves que celles
    nombreuses se terminant par un sprint massif… et certainement moins dangereux q'une descente de col.. comme l'a montré l'accident qui a coûté la vie à Gino Mader, sur le Tour de Suisse cette année. A cet égard l'étape Pinerolo-Valloire de 2024 me semble plus dangereuse avec la descente du Galibier juste avant l'arrivée et cela en début de Tour..étape préférée par le leader de Jumbo, qui dit apprécier les hautes altitudes..
    - les crevaisons ? Certes à priori plus fréquentes sur ce type de chemin…mais dont les conséquences sont
    beaucoup moins graves de nos jours, du fait de la technique et que les équipes sont mieux organisées pour ramener leurs leaders. Ce fut le cas dans l'étape des pavés du Tour 2022, où Vingegaard leader de Jumbo -Visma, « ridiculement paniqué «  par des crevaisons a pu limiter son retard sur Pogacar échappé, grâce à son équipe et particulièrement grâce à Van Aert..

    Donc vive ces étapes, qualifiées de ridicule par certains directeurs sportifs très gâtés et qui veulent tout dominer.. Que le Tour en impose au moins une chaque année.
