Tour de France 2022 Route stage 4: Dunkirk - Calais

Tuesday 5 July - The first race on French soil will be played out in the north of France. The 172 kilometres race will set off Dunkirk to finish in Calais.

Dunkirk has been a regular host to the Tour de France. The last stage start was in 2007. The race went to Ghent, where Gert Steegmans took the win.

Calais is relatively unexperienced in terms of hosting La Grande Boucle. It would be the third time in the 120-year history of La Tour that the town on the Opal Coast will welcome the race withins its borders. Previous occassions were in 1994 – TTT start – and in 2001. That last stage went to Antwerp and was won by Marc Wauters. So both were stage starts, 2022 is bound to see the first stage finish.
