Tour de France 2024 Route stage 6: Mâcon - Dijon

Tour de France 2024Thursday 4 July - The 6th stage of the Tour de France takes the riders in 163 kilometres from Mâcon to Dijon. The route is virtually flat.

The altitude gain between Mâcon and Dijon is less 900 hoogtemeters, so the fast men will be looking forward to the finale in Dijon. Which is an added attraction for the sprinters, as the road is dead straight in the last 800 metres.

Starting venue Mâcon is located on the River Saône and it hosts Le Tour for the seventh time. The last time was in 2019 and Thomas De Gendt took the win that day. The breakaway specialist crossed the line in Saint-Étienne 7 seconds ahead of Thibaut Pinot and Julian Alaphilippe.

The last Tour de France stage finish in Dijon happened in 1997. Bart Voskamp outgunned Jan Heppner in a two-up sprint, but both were relegated and the winner of the peloton sprint, Mario Traversoni, was declared stage victor. It was the biggest win in his career.
