The complete Tour de France 2020 finally unveiled

Details of the Tour de France 2020 were announced this morning at the Palais des Congrès in Paris. 

For 78 editions, the City of Nice has had the honour of hosting the Tour de Fance from Paris to Nice. This year, the roles are reversed and the Tour de France will start its race from Nice towards Paris. The last stage of the race will therefore end on the famous Champs-Élysées on July 19.
 
Spectators are eagerly awaiting what could be one of the most exciting tours to date. With Mont Aigoual, Puy Mary, Grand Colombier and Col de la Loze, four new mountain stages have been added to the programme.
 
The race includes 29 climbs in total, six mountain arrivals, gravel roads and a 36 kilometre individual time trial. In addition, the tour starts a week earlier to allow cyclists to attend the Tokyo Olympic Games one week after the last stop in Paris.
Nice, in the heart of the Tour de France 

"Nice is Paris-Nice. Nice is cycling, it's our appointment in March. The first stage race on the calendar in Europe, we have links. And leaving Nice means you can be in mountainous areas" explains Christian Prudhomme, director of the Tour de France. After Fleurance (1977, 1979), Nice (1981), San Sebastian (1992), Monaco (2009) and Porto-Vecchio (2013), the Tour de France will start for the 7th time from the great south in 2020 and will return to Nice. The first 2 steps will start and arrive in Nice. "We start from the South, probably the most mountainous entrance in history," says Mr. Prudhomme. After the first two stages already known around Nice (Saturday 27 June, Sunday 28), the Grande Boucle will leave Nice from the Allianz Riviera to reach Sisteron, via the Var valley.
