This Sunday, July 7, 2024, the 9th stage awaits the riders of the Tour de France 2024. Special for several reasons: it starts and finishes in the town of Troyes, just 1.3 km apart, and contains no fewer than 14 white roads, for a total distance of 32.2 km, out of the 199 that make up the stage (i.e. 16.2% of the total distance).

For Radio Sports, Thierry Gouvenou was kind enough to come and explain us the particularity and raison d'être of this stage, among the 21 that make up the Tour de France 2024. Find out more below!


Thierry Gouvenou's interview about the 9th stage of the Tour de France 2024 between Troyes and Troyes and with 14 white / dirt roads

At the end of the 8th stage in Colombey-les-Deux-Eglises in the late afternoon, Thierry Gouvenou, event director on the Tour de France and as such the architect of its route, explained to us the particularity of this 9th stage and its raison d'être on a route like that of the Tour de France 2024.

If we hadn't found these white roads here between Troyes and Troyes we'd have had a litany of sprints and that's not what we want to give the public, we want to give it a bit more spice!
