Tour de France 2024 to finish with time trial between Monaco and Nice

Speaking to Cycling Weekly, Pavel Sivakov, who came ninth in last week’s Paris-Nice race, said that the changes are “taking away some of the charm of the tour”.

“You always finish on the Champs Élysées and it’s so special. It’s such an iconic, nice finish”, he added.

“It’s going to be something different. I think it’s going to be interesting. The race will be more open until the end”.

The Tour will start on June 29, with the opening stage from Florence to Rimini on the Adriatic coast.
