2024 Tour de France finale moved to Nice


The final stage of the Tour de France, traditionally held on Paris’s Champs Elysees, will be moved to the southern city of Nice in 2024 when the capital hosts the Olympics, the southern city’s mayor confirmed.

“It’s with some emotion that I am announcing the final stage of the Tour de France 2024 will be held in Nice”, Christian Estrosi told a news conference.

The finale of the Tour has not been moved in the last 100 years, but the 2024 edition will come as Paris prepares to host the Summer Olympics, starting just a few days after the Tour ends.

The capital’s Champs Elysees boulevard is to be transformed into an Olympics venue.

Tour director Christian Prudhomme also said the final stage will be a time trial, which hasn’t happened in more than 30 years.

In 2020, when Nice hosted the Tour’s opening stage, there was a huge crash in heavy rain within three kilometres of the finish line on the Promenade des Anglais, severely injuring Thibaut Pinot.
