The big start of the Tour de France is about to be given.

This year, 21 stages are on the program for the riders between the Danish capital Copenhagen and Paris, where the finish is scheduled for Sunday 24 July.

If you don't have the opportunity to move around the course, you can always make yourself comfortable on your couch.

In total, 120 hours of live are planned to follow the journey of Pogacar, Bardet and other Pinot.

On which channels to watch the Tour de France?

The Tour de France is an international event.

It will be broadcast by 60 channels and in 190 countries.

With us, the stages of the Grande Boucle will once again be free to follow and live on France 3 and France 2.

The 109th edition of the Tour will also be broadcast on Eurosport 1, the Eurosport application and also on the website.

However, you will need a subscription.

What time does the Tour de France pass?

The first stage, a time trial in Copenhagen, will start at 4 p.m.

Departures for the other stages will be given from 12 p.m. or 1 p.m. for arrivals scheduled between 5 p.m. and 5.30 p.m.

Note that if you follow the race on France Télévisions, you will have to make the traditional “switch” between France 3 and France 2 around 3 p.m.

In which main cities does the Tour de France pass?

This year, the Tour will pass through 39 stage cities, including nine new ones.

Among them, therefore, Copenhagen.

The riders will then pass through the North of France, with Dunkirk, Calais (4th stage) and Lille (5th stage), before a short detour via Switzerland and Lausanne (8th stage).

Then head for the Alps, with stages that promise to be lively in famous towns and resorts, such as Megève (10th), Albertville (11th), Briançon and Alpe d'Huez (12th).

Saint-Etienne will act as both the city of arrival and the city of departure (13th and 14th stage), just like Carcassonne (15th and 16th stage).

In the Pyrenees, the riders will stop in particular at Lourdes (18th stage).

Finally, as every year, the grand finale will take place on the Champs-Elysées in Paris (21st).
