One of the biggest cycling competitions released the dispute itinerary. Starting in Bilbao, Spain, the Tour de France 2023 will comprise eight mountain stages and four summit finishes and will pass through the Pyrenees, Massif Central, Jura, Alps and Vosges mountains.
The summits, which are usually in the 15th stage, are the top of Cauterest-Cambasque, Puy de Dôme, Grand Colombier and Saint-Gervais Mont-Blanc. And unlike the last three years, the 20th stage, which crowns the winner of the race, will include five important climbs.
The competition, which ends in Paris on July 23, marks yet another year of celebration for the 120th anniversary of the dispute and also, the return of the Puy de Dôme summit which had not appeared on the route since 1988 after 35 years.
