Starting signal in Nice – overview of all stages and winners

107th Tour de France

The Tour de France 2020 will take place from August 29 to September 20. Due to the corona pandemic, the tour starts two months later than planned. The starting signal for the first stage is given in Nice. Here you will find an overview of all stages, winners and live tickers.

The 21 stages of this year’s tour consist of eight flat stages, four hilly stages, seven mountain stages and two time trials (one team and one individual time trial). The total length of the route is 3460 kilometers. For the first time in the history of the most famous cycle tour, there are three finishes above 2000 meters above sea level: on the Col du Tourmalet, in Tignes and in Val Thorens.

22 teams during the Tour de France 2019

A total of 22 teams with eight athletes each participate, so 176 cyclists are at the start. In the past seven years, six overall winners have come from Great Britain. Only Italian Vincenzo Nibali managed to break through British dominance in 2014. Christopher Froome, who won the Tour in 2013 and between 2015 and 2017, as well as last year’s winner Geraint Thomas of the British cycling team Ineos are again among the tight favorites this year.

Slovakian top star Peter Sagan wants to participate in the battle for the green jersey of the best sprinter. He could win it for the seventh time this year and crown himself the sole record winner. So far, he shares first place with Erik Zabel, whose son Rick will join the tour for the third time.

Special features of this year’s Tour de France

The yellow jersey is celebrating its 100th anniversary. It was introduced as a bright shiny symbol after the end of the First World War in 1919. Since then, the general leader of the classification has been allowed to put on his jersey.

Fifty years ago, cycling legend Eddy Merckx from Belgium took the Tour title for the first time. In his honor, the first two stages start and end in the Belgian capital Brussels.

At 230 kilometers, the 7th stage between Belfort and Chalon-sur-Saône is the longest. The 14th stage, with finish at the Col du Tourmalet, is the shortest at 117 kilometers.
