The tough end of the 2024 Tour: mountain stage and final time with ports

Coinciding with the end of the Paris-Nice, with victory for Tadej Pogacar, the Tour de France has revealed on Monday the profile and route of the last two stages of the 2024 Tour de France that will end up in the streets of Nice. Two very demanding stages that possibly give us one of the most demanding finishes in memory in the French race in a general that will not be decided until the last meter of the race.

The twentieth and penultimate stage of the 2024 Tour de France will be a short but very intense stage of 132 kilometers between Nice and the final climb of the Col de la Couillole. It will be a stage that in just 132 kilometers will bring together, In addition to the climb to the Col de Braus (10 kilometers at 6.6%), the three large mountain passes that have been climbed in recent editions of Paris-Nice: the Col de Turini, with its 20.7 kilometers at 5 ;7%; the Col de la Colmiane, with its 7.5 kilometers at 7.1%; and the final climb to Col de la Couillole, with 15.7 kilometers of ascent at 7.1%.

A very tough stage… but it will not be the last tough day for the riders in the Tour de France, as the final stage will see the contenders for the general standings face off in a final time trial for the first time in the Tour de France since 1989. A time trial that will also be extremely tough, since the riders will have to face a 35-kilometre route starting in Monaco and finishing in Nice with an initial section in which the cyclists will have to face the climb to La Turbie, a whole 8-mile pass. .1 kilometers at 5.6% in full time trial; and the hard final ramps of the Col d’Èze climb, with 1.6 kilometers at 8.1% before a very fast descent that will take the cyclists to the finish line in Nice to crown the champion of the 2024 Tour de France.
