Every summer France is gripped by the biggest and best cycle race in Europe – Le Tour de France. This year the Tour de France 2022 will start on 1st July!
Denmark isn’t the only guest country in 2022 – the Tour will also go into Belgium and Switzerland. It’ll be the first time since 2017 that 4 countries have featured on the route.
Climbs are spread across 4 mountain ranges: the Vosges, the Alps (including a foray into Switzerland), the Massif Central and the Pyrenees. In all there are 6 mountain stages, including 5 summit finishes (La Super Planche des Belles Filles, Col du Granon, Alpe d’Huez, Peyragudes and the Hautacam).
