Tour de France 2024 Route stage 1: Florence - Rimini

Tour de France 2024Saturday 29 June - The 2024 Tour de France starts with a bang. The 1st stage is played out on a 205 kilometres route with an elevation gain of 3,800 metres.

Following a flat run-up of 30 kilometres the route starts to climb false flat to the first uphill test, Colle Tre Faggi, and ascent of 12.5 kilometres with an average gradient of 5.1%. The riders reach the summit after almost 50 kilometres.

A 25 kilometres downhill leads to the Colle Monte delle Forche – 2.5 kilometres at 6.2% -, which is shortly followed by the Sella di Raggio (or, after the ASO’s Francization, Côte de Spinello). This is a 7.1 kilometres ascent at 6%. The first Tour stage of 2024 is almost halfway at the top.

Another long descent takes the riders to the hardest part of the route with four climbs within 50 kilometres. The Colle de Barbotto (5.8 kilometres at 7.6%) and the climbs to San Leo (4.6 kilometres at 7.7%) and Montemaggio (4.2 kilometres at 6.6%) precede a descent into San Marino. The last climb of the day leads in 7.1 kilometres at 4.8% to the capital of the dwarf state.

The summit of the ‘Côte de Saint-Marin’ lies 25 kilometres before the summit. The first 10 kilometres fly downhill back into Italy, while the last 15 kilometres are flat.
