Tour de France 2024: Full schedule, stages, route, length, TV channel & live stream | Sporting News (2024)

The Tour de France is here for 2024.

The iconic cycling event is a test of physical and mental endurance, with riders tackling long distances and challenging routes over three weeks.

Reigning Giro d'Italia champion and two-time Tour de France winnerTadej Pogacar is the clear favourite for 2024, and deservedly so.

However, last year's victor Jonas Vingegaard is fighting to defend his crown, recovering in time from a nasty crash in April, which saw him break his collarbone and ribs and suffer a collapsed lung.

Tour de France 2024 schedule, route, stages, start times

As has become tradition, the 'Grand Depart' was held outside of France, with Stage 1 beginning in the Italian city of Florence.

Riders will make their way into France by Stage 4 where they will stay for the remainder of the Tour (aside from a finale in Monaco).

A few flat stages will follow, with the sprinters set to battle it out in frantic finishes.

The focus will turn to the general classification in the back half of the Tour, with three mountain stages on either side of the second rest day.

An individual time trial from Monaco to Nice will cap off this year's race.
