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 over 163.5 kilometres from Mâcon to Dijon. The route is virtually flat.

The altitude gain between Mâcon and Dijon is 1,000 metres, so the fast men will be looking forward to the finale in Dijon. An added attraction for the sprinters is that the road is dead straight in the last 800 metres.

The starting venue, Mâcon, is located on the River Saône and it hosts Le Tour for the seventh time. The last occasion was in 2019, when Thomas De Gendt took the win. In a nail-biting finale, 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 the stage victor. It was the biggest win in his career.

The route is nothing special. The Col du Bois Clair – 1.6 kilometres at 6% – is crested after 10 kilometres, and the riders navigate the gently rolling roads of Burgundy for the rest of the day.

The first three riders across the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6, and 4 seconds.
