The Ultimate Guide to Tour de France 2024: Exploring the Riviera and Beyond

The third week “to the Riviera I’ll take you”

The city is still unclear and will host the second day of break on July 15. Narbonne? Carcassonne? Montpellier? Gruissan? In any case, sufficient hotel infrastructure is required. Tuesday 16, the 60th birthday of the five-time winner Miguel Indurainthe race will head east with a probable finish in Nîmes (where Mark Cavendishwinner in 2021, took the opportunity to get a little closer to the record ofEddy Merckx -34 successes- which he has equaled since then and which he definitely hopes to beat in nine months) before returning, but in a much more consistent way than the first week, to the Alpine massif via the Hautes-Alpes and the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence . We should arrive at the SuperDévoluy ski resort on July 17, at Barcelonnette on the 18th and at Isola 2000 on the 19th (probably via the Col de Vars and the Cime de la Bonnette which culminates at…2802 meters above sea level)! The arrival at Isola 2000 is also a certainty since Christian Estrosi, the President of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Regional Council, confirmed this a few days ago. It smells like a step-queen!

Whatever the differences on Friday evening, the ranking will not be fixed because the final weekend has been imagined with the aim of offering these twists and turns that ASO has loved since the episode of the Planche des Belles Filles in 2020 when the kid Tadej Pogacar had created a sensation by stealing the yellow jersey from his compatriot in distress Primoz Roglic. These last two stages are officially known (as a reminder, due to the Olympic Games, the event will not end in Paris for the first since its creation in 1903): Nice-Col de la Couillole (a very bad memory for Merckx in 1975!) on the 20th (in a dynamic format with four passes in 132 kilometers) and Monaco-Nice ” once morest time” on July 21, a Belgian national holiday. Of course, Remco doesn’t like gravel roads but he is world time champion!
