Tour de France 2024 Favourites stage 7: ITT masters step up

Remco Evenepoel - Tour de France 2024 Favourites stage 7:foto: Cor VosThis year's Tour de France serves up two individual time trials, and the first one is the flattest. The riders tackle 300 metres of elevation over a 25.3 kilometres course. The route is perfect for pure time trial specialists. (Slideshow route/profile)

Most of the elevation lies hidden in gently sloping sections, but there’s one proper climb. After L’Étang-Vergy, the road goes up for 1.6 kilometres at 6.5% to Reulle-Vergy, with a really steep bit at the start. Two more sections of 100 metres at 8% pep up the hill, but the rest of the climb is pretty steady.

After passing through Reulle-Vergy, the road continues with a gentle incline before descending at mild gradients.

Bike-handling skills are not the most essential to win this ITT, but good legs obviously are. It’s a matter of pushing those big gears.

In short, it’s a course made for pure-bred ITT specialists.
