The 2021 route has been fine-tuned to maintain the suspense until the very end. Climbers will get three opportunities to gain time on summit finishes (Tignes, Saint-Lary-Soulan Col du Portet and Luz Ardiden), but riders will also have to make use of their skills on the descent to win in Le Grand Bornand, at the foot of a “revamped” Ventouxand in Andorra. The addition of two individual time trials with a combined length of 58 kilometres will also be a decisive factor in the strategies of the riders.
Did you know that Australia has its own sequel to the Tour de France called “L’étape Australia”? L’Étape Australia by Tour de France is an award-winning cycling event owned and organised by Lateral Event Management with the support of the Tour de France, SBS and Destination NSW.
