Stage 1 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 206km road stage from Florence to Rimini.

This Classics-type course features 3,600m of climbing through Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna, split among seven classified climbs.

The final ascent is in San Marino, 25km before the finish line.

Stage 1 could be significant in the GC battle.

Stage 2 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 199.2km road stage from Cesenatico to Bologna.

The visit to Cesenatico is to pay homage to Marco Pantani.

The culmination of the stage is an 18.3km circuit in Bologna, with a climb to San Luca which should suit puncheurs. The last 9km of the circuit are downhill or flat.

Turin

Stage 3 of the Tour de France 2024 is 230.8km road stage from Piacenza to Turin.

The race includes a tip of the hat to Fausto Coppi at Tortona, where he lived.

This is a flat stage, and Turin is expected to play host to the first bunch sprint of the 2024 Tour.

Stage 4 Tour de France 2024

Valloire

Stage 4 of the 2024 Tour de France is a 139.6km mountain stage from Pinerolo to Valloire.

It sees the race head to Sestriere before going over the Col de Montgenèvre, where it leaves the Italian Grand Départ behind and crosses into France.

Back in its home country, the race's centrepiece is a climb of the Col du Galibier. The stage finishes with a descent to Valloire.

Stage 5 Tour de France 2024

Chapelle de Marcilleux, near Saint-Vulbas

Stage 5 of the Tour de France 2024 is 177.4km from Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne to Saint-Vulbas.

Today sees the race leave the Alps via Chambéry and head up the Rhône valley. The Côte de l'Huis is the last categorised climb, and nothing should prevent a bunch sprint in the glamorous surroundings of an industrial estate near Saint-Vulbas.

This could be a chance for Mark Cavendish.

Stage 6 Tour de France 2024

Ducal Palace, Dijon

Stage 6 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 163.5km flat stage from Mâcon to Dijon.

Cultural highlights on the route are Cluny and Cîteaux Abbeys, the Betamax and VHS of Medieval monasteries.

There may well be a breakaway on Stage 6, but the sprinters' teams will want to catch it and contest the 800m straight to the finish line in Dijon.

Stage 7 Tour de France 2024

Nuits-Saint-Georges
Nuits-Saint-Georges, by Opsylac, Licence CC BY-SA 4.0

Stage 7 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 25.3km individual time trial from Nuits-Saint-Georges to Gevrey-Chambertin.

The first part of the parcours is on roads through forests. Here, there's the 1.6km climb of the Côte de Curtil-Vergy.

After Chambolle-Musigny, the stage will showcase the vineyards in this part of Burgundy from the Route des Grands Crus.

Could today be an opportunity for ITT World Champion Remco Evenepoel to bag a stage win?

Stage 8 Tour de France 2024

Colombey-les-deux-Eglises

Stage 8 of the Tour de France 2024 is 183.4km from Semur-en-Auxois to Colombey-les-deux-Eglises. Colombey was the home of General Charles de Gaulle.

There are five categorised climbs in the first part of the stage, which may favour a breakaway. As the parcours flattens later on, the sprinters' teams should be able to close the gap.

The finish straight is 3km long, and a 3% uphill drag. Could it be an opportunity for Mads Pedersen?

Stage 9 Tour de France 2024

White roads in Paris Tours
White roads in Paris-Tours 2023, by ASO/Gautier Demouveaux

Stage 9 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 199km hilly stage starting and finishing in Troyes.

It features the 'white roads' of Champagne - gravel and dust roads like those of Strade Bianche and Paris-Tours. There are 14 sectors of these gravel roads through Champagne vineyards, totalling 32km.

Stage 9 could be one for a Classics rider who thrives in Strade Bianche - perhaps Tom Pidcock.

Stage 10 Tour de France 2024

Orléans
Orléans, by Bmazerolles, Licence CC BY-SA 4.0

Stage 10 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 187.3km flat stage from Orléans to Saint-Amand-Montrond.

The riders head through the Sologne forest to Vierzon. They continue to Issoudun, and after that they are on exposed roads where crosswinds may play a role.

Mark Cavendish won in Saint-Amand in 2013, in what is Julian Alaphilippe's home town.

Stage 11 Tour de France 2024

Le Lioran
Le Lioran, by Nouill, Licence CC BY-SA 4.0

Stage 11 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 211km mountain stage in the Massif Central, from Evaux-les-Bains to Le Lioran.

The last third of the race is the same as Stage 5 of the 2016 Tour, won from a breakaway by Greg van Avermaet.

That's where most of the 4,350m of climbing is, with ascents of the Col de Néronne, Puy Mary Pas de Peyrol, Col de Pertus and Col de Font de Cère, before the final climb to Le Lioran.

Stage 12 Tour de France 2024

Rocamadour
Rocamadour, by dynamosquito, Licence CC BY-SA 2.0

Stage 12 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 203.6km flat stage from Aurillac to Villeneuve-sur-Lot.

Although classified flat there are plenty of hills in the first half of the route, including one to Rocamadour, which should give a breakaway a chance. The sprinters' teams will be looking to catch the breakaway riders in the flatter second half of the parcours.

Stage 13 Tour de France 2024

Chateau de Pau
Château de Pau, by Ineremhat, Licence CC BY-SA 3.0

Stage 13 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 165.3km flat stage from Agen to Pau.

There are 'balcony roads' in the Lot-et-Garonne early in the stage, and hilly terrain towards the finish.

The Blachon and Simacourbe climbs could prove fatal for some pure sprinters, perhaps favouring the breakaway or a sprinter-who-can-climb.

Read about Stage 13, Tour de France 2024.

Stage 14 Tour de France 2024

Col du Tourmalet

Stage 14 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 151.9km mountain stage from Pau to Saint-Lary-Soulan Pla-d'Adet.

The parcours is relatively flat as far as Lourdes, but in the second half of the route there are some well-known climbs. They include the Col du Tourmalet, Hourquette d'Ancizan and Pla-d'Adet.

Rafal Majka won the last time there was a summit finish at Pla-d'Adet, in 2014.

Stage 15 Tour de France 2024

Plateau de Beille
Plateau de Beille, by Ronde de l'Isard, Licence CC BY 2.0

Stage 15 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 197.7km Pyreneen mountain stage from Loudenvielle to Plateau de Beille.

The climbs include the Col de Peyresourde, the Col de Menté, the Col de Portet-d'Aspet, and the Col d'Agnes. The summit finish is at Plateau de Beille.

This is a long stage with a lot of climbing, and it will be very hard. If Jonas Vingegaard is on form, will it suit him?

Stage 16 Tour de France 2024

Amphitheatre at Nimes
Amphitheatre at Nimes, by Krzysztof Golik, Licence CC BY-SA 4.0

Stage 16 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 188.6km flat stage from Gruissan to Nîmes.

The stage route leaves the coast near Narbonne, and heads over the Pic Saint-Loup. If the Mistral blows it could disrupt the peloton, and present an opportunity to those teams that deal well with windy conditions.

Stage 17 Tour de France 2024

Superdévoluy
Superdévoluy, by Gonioul, Licence CC BY-SA 3.0

Stage 17 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 177.8km mountain stage from Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux to Superdévoluy.

It's fairly flat early on, the Drôme, but the last 40km includes the Col Bayard and the Col du Noyer. The terrain should favour the formation of a big breakaway group. They could fight it out for the stage win on the ascent to the finish line at Superdévoluy.

Read about Stage 17 Tour de France 2024.

Stage 18 Tour de France 2024

Lac de Serre Poncon
Lac de Serre Ponçon, by Fanny Schertzer, Licence CC BY-SA 3.0

Stage 18 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 179.6km hilly stage from Gap to Barcelonnette.

The parcours crosses the Lac de Serre Ponçon, then heads into the hills. The Côte de Saint-Apollinaire and the Côte des Demoiselles Coiffées provide opportunities for puncheurs like Mathieu van der Poel or Ben Healy to break clear.

Read about Stage 18 Tour de France 2024.

Stage 19 Tour de France 2024

Cime de la Bonette
Cime de la Bonette, by Marie-France Trachsel, Licence CC BY-SA 3.0

Stage 19 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 144.6km mountain stage from Embrun to Isola 2000.

It's a relatively short stage, but with three climbs that peak above 2,000m. The high point is the Cime de la Bonette, where the highest road in France reaches 2,802m.

We'll see which riders thrive at altitude, and whether some struggle.

Stage 20 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 132.8km mountain stage from Nice to the Col de Couillole.

There's hardly any warm-up before the climbs start.

There are four of them - the Cols de Braus, Turini, Colmiane and Couillole.

Stage 21 Tour de France 2024

Monaco La Condamine
Monaco La Condamine

Stage 21 of the Tour de France 2024 is a 33.7km individual time trial from Monaco to Nice.

The parcours takes in the seafront in Monaco and the Promenade des Anglais in Nice.

In between, the riders will take the corniche roads via La Turbie and Eze.

Stage 15 of the Tour de France 2024 ended with the long, difficult climb to the Plateau de Beille.

Visma Lease-a-Bike decided they needed to test Pogacar from further out, rather than waiting for the last few hundred metres. Would their tactic succeed?

Jasper Philipsen

Stage 13 of the Tour de France 2024 could have been one for the breakaway, and crosswinds meant that it might even have led to changes on GC.

Instead, it finished in a reduced bunch sprint in Pau.

Stage 12 of the Tour de France 2024 from Aurillac to Villeneuve-sur-Lot ended in a bunch sprint.

Jasper Philipsen
Jasper Philipsen, by ASO/Charly Lopez

Stage 10 of the Tour de France 2024 was a straightforward sprint stage that finished in Saint-Amand-Montrond.

Mark Cavendish won in Saint-Amand in 2013, but could he repeat the feat 11 years later?

This is a promotional video for the Grand Départ in Florence, Emilia-Romagna and Piedmont.

The 2024 Grand Départ is in Florence, Emilia-Romagna and Piedmont. This is the first time there has been a Grand Départ in Italy.

Italian Tour de France Winners

Ottavio Bottecchia will be mentioned in the context of the Grand Départ 2024, because he was the first Italian winner of the Tour de France.

Gino Bartali was a bike racer from Florence who won Grand Tours before and after the war. He will be celebrated on Stage 1.
