Tour de France 2023 Route stage 20: Belfort - Le Markstein

Tour de France 2023Saturday 22 July - The last mountain stage of the Tour de France is played out in the Vosges Mountains. The finish is situated in ski station Le Markstein.

Belfort hosted the Tour de France on a dozen occasions, as a start venue. In 2019 the race went to Chalon-sur-Saône, where Dylan Groenewegen sprinted to victory.

Sprinters are aware that they have no change to triumph while clipping into their pedals in Belfort. It will be a stage for the climbers and GC contenders. After traversing a series of mountains the finish is situated in Le Markstein, a ski station 7 kilometres after the last climb. That last section is as good as flat.

The finale features the Petit Ballon (9.3 kilometres at 8.1%) and Col du Platzerwasel (7.1 kilometres at 8.4%).

La Markstein was included twice in the Tour for men – 2014, 2019 -, but it never before served as a finish for the biggest cycling event on the planet.
