Tour de France 2024 Route stage 21: Monaco - Nice

Tour de France 2024Sunday 21 July - The 2024 Tour de France serves an ITT on the last day of action. The 35.2 kilometres route between Monaco and Nice features two climbs - 8.1 kilometres at 5.6% and 1.6 kilometres at 8.1% - before riders plunge down towards the Côte d'Azur.

It’s almost 20 kilometres along the coast to get from Monaco to Nice, but luckily the riders are sent into the mountains after a short stint on the flat. The riders roll of the ramp in one of the most famous harbors in the world and set off in the direction off Italy, but make a U-turn and return to climb up the D53 to La Turbie. It’s an 8.1 kilometres effort with an average gradient of 5.6%.

The route then descends to Éze, which is a staple section on Paris-Nice. Usually the riders go straight ahead, and further downhill, towards Nice, which is not happening this time. Instead, a righthander takes the riders onto a 1.6 kilometres climb at 8.1%.

After a reaching the summit of the Col d’Éze on its steepest side the riders continue downhill towards Nice. They reach the Promenade des Anglais and race on the flat along the Mediterranean only to make a U-turn and return to the city centre and finish on Avenue Jean Médecin.
