Tour de France rebrands and drops the 'Le'

The cycling race gets a sunny new look.

Tour de France logo 2019

Le Tour de France is now just Tour de France, according to its new logo. A new bright yellow version of the cycling race's logo was used throughout this year's competition. 

And yes, we know, we're a little late to the party. But in all fairness, the event itself unveiled the new logo and identity with little fanfare, and we were too busy watching Wimbledon/reading our guide to logo design to notice. 

The new logo (designer unknown) sticks with the same scrawly handwriting font as before. However, there are lots of subtle differences to the previous logo, which was created by Joel Guenoun in 2002 and incorporates a hidden cyclist – one of our favourite logo easter eggs . 

The 'o' is now a full circle – which makes sense as it looks more like a wheel than before, the 'u' is less squished in and therefore easier to read, the 'r', or cyclist, is now slightly easier to read too. There are also subtle changes to the letters in the word 'France', which improve legibility overall. 

The 'de' in the logo has also moved, making the logo less likely to be read as 'Le de Tour France'. And of course, the 'le' has gone altogether. This is perhaps the most interesting move in terms of the letters, because the competition is still known as Le Tour, even on its own Twitter feed. 

Was it because the organisers were fed up of people who don't speak French butchering the 'le'? Or was it simply to make the logo neater and easier to place? The designer has also added a 'TM' to the logo, which feels a little unnecessary. 

You can see the new logo in action on @LeTour's Twitter feed, below. 

🏆 Final sprint on the Champs-Elysées. It can be a very close one like in 2016 in Limoges between Marcel Kittel and Bryan Coquard. 🏆 Dernier sprint sur les Champs-Elysées. Victoire à un boyau avec @Continental_fr en perspective comme en 2016 à Limoges entre Kittel et Coquard ? July 28, 2019

The refreshed colour palette is also with a mention. The use of bright yellow, although a little garish, does make sense for Tour de France. The yellow jersey (maillot jaune) is worn by the leader of the race at each stage, and by the winner at the end. And while the previous logo was a sort of nod to this, its circle was more of an orangey hue. This logo matches the jersey much more closely. 

See more about the yellow jersey in the video below. 

The dazzling yellow as the wheel/sun of the logo, as well as across the identity in general also reflects the summery feel to the competition, and many will already associate the race with long, hot days. 

And while those who weren't keen on the previous logo will have hoped the logo would change more significantly, we're just pleased that the 'hidden rider' is still present. The enlarged 'u' does break this design up a bit, but we think the rider is easier to see now. Although that's perhaps because we can't 'unsee' it.

Tour de France Logo

Tour de France

The Tour de France was established in 1903 and is the most prestigious cycling race in the world. The event has never missed a year except during the two World Wars.

Since its inception, the logo of the race has gone through several changes. The current logo was created in 2002 by French designer, Joel Guenoun, to mark the race’s 100th anniversary and it has remained unchanged since then.

The logo features a playful brush script typeface and a bright yellow circle representing the famous yellow jersey that is worn by the leader of the race throughout the various stages and which is ultimately awarded to the winner of the race itself.

The yellow circle also forms a wheel as part of the bicycle and rider, cleverly hidden within the design of the word ‘tour’.

Undoubtedly a classic logo for a classic sporting event.

Jonas Vingegaard is likely to attempt a third win at the Tour de France 2024

The 2024 Tour de France marks the 111th edition of cycling's flagship race. In the first Grand Départ for Italy, the race starts in Florence and traces a path east across the country, before heading back west towards France and into the Alps. The race also tackles the Apennines, Massif Central and Pyrenees mountain ranges, and passes through Italy, San Marino, Monaco and France. This edition breaks from tradition, finishing not in Paris but in Nice, due to the 2024 Paris Olympics. 

The three-week event is the second in the trio of Grand Tours, coming after the Giro d'Italia and before the Vuelta a España .

Tour de France 2024 route

One for the climbers, the 2024 Tour de France route incorporates four summit finishes, spans four mountain ranges, and features the hilliest opening stage in history. One of the most interesting and intriguing routes of recent years, sitting between the predominantly hilly week one and week three sits a flatter week two, and stage nine - with an abundance of white roads; 14 sectors in total. There's plenty for the sprinters as well as the general classification and climbing specialists, although there are going to be some tough mountains to get over to reach the sprint stages, and to finish the three weeks. For the first time in 35 years, a final day time trial means the yellow jersey won't be decided on the penultimate day. 

Tour de France 2024 route: stage-by-stage

Tour de france 2024 teams.

There will be 22 teams of eight riders at the 2024 Tour de France. This includes all 18 UCI WorldTour teams, as well as the two best-ranked UCI ProTeams, and two further squads invited by the organiser, ASO. 

Tour de France 2024 general classification riders

The general classification riders set to appear on the start line in Florence on June 29 are as of yet unconfirmed.

Reigning champion Jonas Vingegaard is extremely likely to be there to defend his title, and there should be no challenges from within the team since Primož Roglič's move to Bora-Hansgrohe. However, Roglič will be making his own bid for the win as the new team leader, with the route suiting him well. 

Following the route announcement in October, Tadej Pogačar said that the "end of the journey makes me smile", with the final 2 stages starting and finishing close to his home in Monaco. Pogačar is hoping to take back the top step in 2024 after two years of missing out on yellow to Vingegaard.

Remco Evenepol intends to make his Tour de France debut in 2024. Although he took a win in 2022 at the Vuelta, his performance in other Grand Tour races has been either inconsistent or blighted by illness. If he's to compete against the likes of Vingegaard and Pogačar, he'll have to up his game. It's not yet known who Ineos Grenadiers will hand the reins to, but, coming 5th overall and taking a stage win in his Tour debut in 2023 , Carlos Rogríguez seems a likely choice.

Tour de France 2024 sprinters

It's going to be a tough year for the sprinters. Jasper Philipsen of Alpecin-Deceuninck was one of the star men of last year's Tour de France, taking four stage wins and the green sprinter's jersey at the end of the three weeks. If the Belgian returns in 2024 then he will definitely be looking to defend his jersey.

Mads Pederson of Trek-Segafredo has won stages in all three Grand Tours and is likely to gain victory again in some of the harder sprint stages in 2024.

All eyes will be on Mark Cavendish in the 111th Tour de France after he postponed retirement to target the Tour win record, currently shared with Eddy Merckx, and gain his 35th win. He said, however, that he was "in shock" and that this was the "toughest course" he had ever seen , when it was revealed in October. 

Tour de France 2024 on TV

As you'd expect the Tour de France will be avialable to watch in a lot of places this July.

The race is expected to be live-streamed on GCN +, Discovery+ and Eurosport , as well as ITV4, in the UK and in Europe. Subscription costs are £6.99/month or $8.99/month, and £39.99 or $49.99 for a year.

A Flobikes  annual subscription will cost you $209.99 if you want to watch in Canada, while in the USA  NBC Sports  via Peacock Premium ($4.99 per month) will show the race. Australians can can watch the Tour for free on SBS on Demand.

And, of course, if you want to watch your local stream from anywhere in the world you'll need a VPN from a trusted company like ExpressVPN .

Tour de France jerseys

Much like every year in recent memory, the Tour de France jerseys and classifications are yellow for the overall leader, green for the leader in the points standings, polka-dot for the mountain classification, and white for the best young rider.

Along with the jersey prizes, there is an award for the most combative rider of each stage, with the winner wearing a red number on the following day. This is awarded each day, with a 'Super Combativity' award decided by a jury at the end of the race for the most active rider throughout the entire event.

There is also a team classification where the time of the first three riders from each team is put together to create a single time. This is then done in a similar way as the individual general classification.

In addition, there are plenty of bonus seconds up for grabs at the race. There are ten, six and four bonus seconds available at the end of each stage for the first three riders, as well as bonus sprints that are dotted throughout the race on key climbs to try and make the racing more entertaining for spectators.

Of course, there's also prize money up for grabs. For winning the 2023 edition of the race, Jonas Vingegaard collected €535,220 (£463,100), a sum which is customarily shared out among the team's riders and staff.

How does the Tour de France work?

The Tour de France is one of a trio of races that are three weeks long, known as the Grand Tours, alongside the Giro d'Italia and the Vuelta a España. The Tour is the best known and arguably the most prestigious.

It is the second of the three races in the calendar with the Giro taking place in May, the Tour usually in July, and the Vuelta in August and September.

The Tour, like all Grand Tours, takes on varying terrain with flat days for sprinters, hilly days for punchers and mountains for the climbers and GC riders, along with time trials, so that a winner of the race has to be able to perform on all types of road.

The main prize in the race, known as the general classification, is based on time with the overall leader wearing the yellow jersey. The race leader and eventual winner is the rider who has the lowest accumulated time over the 21 days of racing. Riders can win the Tour de France without winning a stage, as Chris Froome did in 2017. Time bonuses of 10, six, and four seconds are given to stage winners though, creating incentive for those general classification riders to chase individual victories and lower their overall time.

In 2020 it took race winner Tadej Pogačar 87 hours 20 minutes and 5 seconds to complete the race with the second-place rider overall 59 seconds slower. That continues all the way down to the last place rider, which was Roger Kluge (Lotto-Soudal) who finished 6 hours 7 minutes and 2 seconds behind.

The white best young rider's jersey is worked out in the same way but only riders under the age of 26 are eligible for the jersey.

The polka-dot mountains jersey and the green points jersey are based on a points system and not time. The only reason time would come into account would be if riders are tied on points, then it would go to who is the best placed in the general classification.

The team classification is based on the general classification times of the first three riders of a team on each stage. The time of those three riders is added up and put onto their team's time, creating a GC list much like in the individual classifications. The leading team gets to wear yellow numbers and helmets on each stage.

The final classification available is the combativity prize. This is decided by a race jury or, in more recent years, Twitter. This takes place just before the end of each stage and often goes to a rider from the breakaway who has put in a daring performance or attempted to liven up the stage by attacking. The winner of the combativity award gets to wear a special red race number on the following day's stage.

There is a final prize added to this with the Super Combativity prize being awarded on the podium in Paris. This is decided in a similar fashion to pick out the most aggressive, entertaining, and daring rider of the whole three weeks. Again, usually going to a rider who has featured regularly in the breakaway.

Stage winners do not wear anything special the day after apart from getting a small yellow jersey to stick on their number on their bike, this can be replaced if they win multiple stages.

Teams used to come to the race with nine riders but the UCI, cycling's governing body, decided that nine riders from each team was too dangerous and dropped it to eight, however more teams now take part.

How long is the Tour de France?

The Tour de France takes place over 23 days with 21 of them being race days. The riders get two days of resting; they usually fall on the second and third Monday of the race.

This year's race is 3,492km long, which is 2,170 miles, around the same distance from Washington DC to Las Vegas, or Helsinki to Lisbon. 

Road stages can range from anything around 100km to something approaching 250km, sometimes more. This year the shortest road stage is stage 20, from Nice to Col de la Couillole, with the longest being 229km on stage three in Italy, from Plaisance to Turin.

Road stages often take around four to five hours with the longer days sometimes nudging over seven hours.

Time trials are always much shorter. Team time trials have long since gone out of fashion in the world of road racing so individual time trials are the main focus these days. 

In 2024, the Tour has two individual time trials for the riders to tackle, the first on stage seven at 25km long from Nuits-Saint-Georges to Gevrey-Chambertin, and the second on the final stage from Monaco to Nice, at 34km long.

When does the Tour de France start?

The 2024 Tour de France starts on June 29 in Florence, Italy, with a road stage. There will be three full stages in Italy, before the fourth heads into France. The race finishes in Nice three weeks later.

The 2024 edition of the race runs from 29 June - 21 July, covering 21 stages.

The Tour de France bikes, ranked

  • The 107th Tour de France got rolling in Nice on August 29 and finished in Paris on Sunday. 176 riders started and 146 finished.
  • The 21-year-old Slovenian Tadej Pogačar won the three-week race after dramatically snatching the leader's yellow jersey from compatriot Primož Roglič on Saturday's penultimate stage, an hourlong time trial with a demanding summit finish.
  • With the racing done, we again   ranked each of the 22 teams' bikes, based on design, build, and, most important, looks. Many weigh just 15 pounds, but will put you back $10,000 or more.

Insider Today

The 21-year-old Slovenian Tadej Pogačar won a dramatic Tour de France in Paris on Sunday, beating compatriot Primož Roglič by nearly a minute, with the Tasmanian Richie Porte in third a further 2 1/2 minutes back.

While it was one of the finest, and hardest, Tours in the race's 107-year history — with a record 190,000 feet of vertical gain — all along the 22 teams were building, servicing, and washing hundreds of bikes to keep the riders going to Paris.

And some bikes they are.

As in the past two Tours, we checked in on who was riding what.

At this level of the sport, each rider has at least three bikes in his quiver: a superfast aero bike for the flatter stages, an ultralight climber for the mountains, and a slippery whip for the time trial . We omitted TT bikes and looked at either the aero or climbing bike, depending on which we thought more list-worthy.

These carbon-fiber machines weigh 15 pounds and cost $10,000.

22. CCC/Giant

tour de france bike logo

CCC's Giant TCR Advanced SL may be a lightweight climber, but it isn't visually stimulating. All-black bikes are a trend that started a decade ago but these days feel dated. They don't fare well in this ranking and never have . And though we love gumwall tires, oversized wheel lettering is gaudy. At least the CCC orange pops! Dura-Ace and a Garmin Edge make this a high-end performance machine. It just needs a visual makeover. Surprisingly, the star-studded CCC squad didn't win a single stage this Tour.

21. Groupama-FDJ/Lapierre

tour de france bike logo

Groupama-FDJ's Lapierre Xelius SL is a modern climbing machine with classic good looks that fails to spark the imagination. It has interesting aero shapes and a compact rear triangle for added stiffness, and you can't go wrong with Dura-Ace Di2, disc brakes, and a Garmin Edge computer/power meter. Yet even the bike of Thibaut Pinot "Noir" could do with a little flair. Unfortunately, the team didn't win a stage this Tour or place anyone high up in the final general classification, with Pinot having imploded midrace.

20. Cofidis/De Rosa

tour de france bike logo

Cofidis rides De Rosa bicycles , and while we're sure they ride wonderfully, they look like a lot of the other bikes in the bunch in nearly all-black livery. De Rosa is a classic Italian brand, so it's only fitting the Cofidis Tour bikes roll with electronic Campagnolo components. The lightweight De Rosa Merak might please the minimalists but will leave others wanting. At least its heart is red. Cofidis riders couldn't pull off a stage win this year, though Guillaume Martin, pictured above, did finish 11th overall.

19. Team B&B Hotels/KTM

tour de france bike logo

Team B&B Hotels' KTM Revelator Alto, with a mix of Shimano and FSA components, features a teal fork and pops of white and orange that somehow work visually. The DT Swiss wheels complement without dominating the look. New kid on the block KTM is making its debut appearance at the Tour in style. The team didn't win a stage but was active in several breakaways. It's a start.

18. Bora-Hansgrohe/Specialized

tour de france bike logo

Bora-Hansgrohe's Specialized Tarmac is probably the fastest bike at the Tour — raced by three-time world champ Peter Sagan — but looks-wise, it's lagging a bit behind the pack. Pops of white and green add much-needed color, but if results are all you care about, a shiny Tarmac with deep-profile hoops, disc brakes, and Di2 gets the job done. Bora's Lennard Kämna won a stage this Tour, and Sagan was in the hunt for an eighth green jersey all the way to Paris.

17. Deceuninck-Quick Step/Specialized

tour de france bike logo

Julian Alaphilippe scored a dramatic victory on the second day of the Tour de France, giving Deceuninck-Quick Step one of its three stage wins. He did it on his Specialized Tarmac SL7 , and, famously, he did it on clincher tires. The bike is obviously fast, but it's also underwhelming-looking, so it sits lower down in this ranking.

16. Israel Start-Up Nation/Factor

tour de france bike logo

Israel Start-Up Nation's Factor O2 Vam is a superlight climbing bike built for going uphill as fast as possible. With its brushed blue lettering, even its glossy paint job looks fast. In pursuit of free speed, it's built up with minimalist Black Inc. wheels, electronic Dura-Ace, and oversized Ceramic Speed pulley wheels . Israel Start-Up Nation didn't win a stage this Tour or place anyone high in the overall.

15. Trek-Segafredo

tour de france bike logo

Trek-Segafredo's Émonda SLR is one of the lightest and fastest climbing bikes in the peloton, but it doesn't wow us aesthetically. Yet the aero climber is sleek and race-proven, and the way Tour team leader Richie Porte stormed onto the podium in Paris, it's got legit street cred. P.S. The color of your handlebar tape should always match the color of your saddle. It's just a fact.


tour de france bike logo

NTT's BMC Teammachine SLR 01 goes full in on speed with its minimalist aero frameset and cockpit. Unlike many of the mostly black bikes, this one stands more with its red top and distinctive white lettering. A gold-plated chain and deep-profile ENVE wheels complement the look nicely. NTT didn't manage to win a stage this year, with its star sprinter, Giacomo Nizzolo, quitting the race mid-way because of injury.

13. Arkea-Samsic/Canyon

tour de france bike logo

While Nairo Quintana didn't pull out a stage win for his Arkea-Samsic team, he put in some gutsy riding and showed glimpses of his previous world-class form. His stiff, lightweight Canyon Ultimate CFR climbing bike popped as the only white frameset in the bunch, and it has a classic look with low-profile Dura-Ace wheels and components that help make it a performance powerhouse in the mountains. We also dig that Canyon type .

12. Movistar/Canyon

tour de france bike logo

Movistar didn't win a stage this Tour but did manage to put Enric Mas in fifth place overall in Paris and win the best team award. On the flatter stages, riders such as Alejandro Valverde, pictured above, opted for the Canyon Aeroad CF SL , a rig made for cheating the wind and going fast. We've always liked the blue paint job too. Movistar was one of two teams in this year's Tour to ride Chicago-based SRAM components (the other team being Trek-Segafredo).

11. Lotto-Soudal/Ridley

tour de france bike logo

Lotto-Soudal had a successful Tour with two stage wins thanks to the rocket sprinter Caleb Ewan , pictured above. In the mountains, he opted for the Belgian brand's lightweight climbing bike, the Ridley Helium SLX , built up with Campagnolo components and wheels. It's a colorful bike, but a little too busy with stickers and lettering. Still, stage wins are stage wins.

10. Team UAE-Emirates/Colnago

tour de france bike logo

The Tour-winning bike this year, Tadej Pogačar's Colnago V3rs , is a special ride. Colnago, the famed Italian bike maker, had never won a Tour till this year, but its history was already filled with stars and victories. The V3rs is a classic-looking lightweight racer that carried Pogačar to stunning victories in the high mountains. And clean up he did, taking the white jersey (best young rider), the polka-dot jersey (best climber), the yellow jersey (overall winner), as well as three individual stage wins. His bike's Italian flair is complemented by a Campagnolo groupset and wheels, naturally.

9. Team Total Direct Energie/Wilier

The glossy admiral blue Wilier Zero SLR ridden by Total Direct Energie was runner-up in last year's ranking and slipped a few spots this time around. It's a fast bike with aero features, but perhaps not everyone will dig the multicolored Ursus wheels . The team couldn't manage a stage win or a high finish in Paris, but it got a lot of TV time thanks to Jérôme Cousin 's solo adventures.

8. AG2R-La Mondiale/Eddy Merckx

tour de france bike logo

Nans Peters, pictured above, saved AG2R-La Mondiale's Tour with a sweet solo breakaway to win stage eight. He did it aboard the understated Eddy Merckx 525 , a good-looking ride with a pleasing mix of colors and handsome lettering honoring the GOAT. The lightweight carbon wheels by Mavic and gumwall tires complement the classic look, not to mention the rim brakes.

7. Sunweb/Cervélo

tour de france bike logo

Sunweb's Cervélo S5 is all about going fast, and it is perhaps the most aerodynamic frameset in the bunch. The multicolored bike features deep oversize tubing, an aero cockpit and seatpost, and prominent curves around the wheels. In this Tour, Sunweb's Søren Kragh Andersen won two stages, and Marc Hirschi, pictured above, won a stage as well as the "supercombativity" prize for the most aggressive rider.

6. Bahrain-McLaren/Merida

tour de france bike logo

Bahrain-McLaren's Merida Scultura is a gorgeous lightweight climber that pops with vibrant oranges, reds, and blues. The Scultura has a classic-looking design we like but is also very aerodynamic with smooth rounded tubes. Dura-Ace and Vision wheels complete the package. The team didn't win a stage this Tour, but Mikel Landa finished fourth overall, and Damiano Caruso, pictured above, finished 10th.

5. Jumbo-Visma/Bianchi

tour de france bike logo

Jumbo-Visma's Bianchi Oltre XR4 won our ranking last year and slipped to fifth this time around. The famed Italian bike maker's celeste frames pop in a sea of black bikes, and there's no shortage of performance features, with its aggressive, deep aero tubes and Dura-Ace carbon wheels. Jumbo-Visma lost the Tour on the penultimate stage but walked away with three stage wins and runner-up on the general classification with Roglič.

4. Mitchelton-Scott

tour de france bike logo

Team Mitchelton-Scott rides one the most visually interesting bikes in the peloton: the Scott Addict . Its sparkling paint appears to change color in bright sunlight, making it stand out brilliantly in a field of matte-black frames. It's also one of most aero bikes, with slippery tubing, fully integrated cables, minimalist cockpit, and Dura-Ace wheels. The squad didn't win a stage this year, but Adam Yates did lead the race for a few stages.

3. Ineos-Grenadiers/Pinarello

tour de france bike logo

In one of our previous rankings, Team Sky's all-matte-black Pinarello Dogma came in dead last, oozing dullness. But the crew now known as Ineos-Grenadiers is on our podium with a new-look Dogma F12 in blue, red, and white. Its curvy aero tube shapes have always helped it stand out, and with its updated smart looks, the multiple-Tour-winning bike has never been better.

The already fast bike benefits from an electronic Dura-Ace groupset and what appear to be not-sponsor-correct Lightweight wheels. The top team managed only one stage win this year, thanks to Michał Kwiatkowski, and it failed to defend itself overall after the implosion of Egan Bernal and his early exit.

2. EF Pro Cycling/Cannondale

tour de france bike logo

You can't miss EF's pink jerseys, and yet its Cannondale SuperSix EVO s are lookers, too, with their handsome blue-pink aero framesets. We've spent a lot of time riding the EVO , a light, fast, and fun all-around bike that gets better with each iteration. Cannondale says this EVO is the fastest lightweight bike it's ever made, saving 30 watts at 30 mph. It certainly worked well this Tour for stage winner Dani Martínez and eighth-place overall finisher Rigoberto Urán. Vision wheels, electronic Dura-Ace, and a Garmin Edge computer/power meter complete the build.

1. Astana/Wilier

tour de france bike logo

Our favorite bicycle at this year's Tour de France was Astana's elegant Wilier Zero SLR . The Italian maker touts its Zero — which won two stages this Tour thanks to Alexey Lutsenko and Miguel Ángel López — as the first ultralightweight racing bike with disc brakes and fully integrated cables. We just know it's gorgeous. Its beautiful paint job, unusual handmade French Corima carbon wheels, Dura-Ace groupset, and extra-fast Ceramic Speed pulley wheels easily put this bike atop our ranking. Bellissimo.

2022 Tour de France team bikes.

This competition is now closed

By Jack Luke , Paul Norman

Published: June 30, 2023 at 4:40 pm

The 2023 Tour de France covers 3,404km (2,115 miles) over its 21 stages. That’s 54km more than last year’s Tour.

However, the bigger news is that time trial kilometres are down from two time trials totalling 53km last year (including the Prologue) to just one at 22.4km this year. It finishes at 974m in altitude and has a 2.5km Cat 2 climb to the finish, with an average 9.4 per cent gradient.

For several years, there’s been an individual time trial on the penultimate stage, but this year, it’s on the Tuesday of the final week.

Given how a time trial can upset the final result, as in the 2023 Giro d’Italia, or cement it, as in last year’s Tour, it’s a surprising move.

That means the teams’ road bikes are increasingly to the fore. As usual, there’s some very flashy tech on show and we can expect more to be announced in the run-up to the Grand Départ and probably to be unearthed by the sharp-eyed as the race proceeds.

Read on for a complete list of the bikes in this year’s Tour de France, along with the kit they’re fitted with, and our pick of some of the new bikes and tech to keep an eye out for at the 2023 Tour de France .

Tour de France 2023 bike brands

The 2023 Tour de France peloton is made up of 22 teams of eight, 176 riders in total. The 18 WorldTour squads receive an automatic invitation to compete, while four second-tier Pro Continental teams get a wildcard invitation. Between them, 19 bike brands are represented.

That’s two up on last year’s Tour, although the majority of brands are the same as in last year’s race. Even Ridley and Factor, who saw their teams demoted to the UCI’s second division, are back this year thanks to wildcard invitations for Lotto-Dstny and Israel-Premier Tech respectively.

New bike brands this year are Bianchi, Look and Dare, while out this year is De Rosa. Specialized continues to sponsor three teams, as in 2022, but Canyon is down from three to two.

Bianchi Oltre RC

Bianchi was absent last year, but is back with Arkéa-Samsic. It had its first race win back in 1899 and its bikes were ridden by Fausto Coppi, Felice Gimondi and Marco Pantani as well as a who’s who of other top-drawer racers, so it’s a prestigious return for the brand. On the other hand, De Rosa is an equally famous name from cycling’s past that has departed the Tour.

Bike brands represented at the 2023 Tour de France:

  • Bianchi : Team Arkéa-Samsic
  • BMC : AG2R Citroën Team
  • Cannondale : EF Education-EasyPost
  • Canyon : Alpecin-Deceuninck, Movistar Team
  • Cervélo : Jumbo-Visma
  • Colnago : UAE Team Emirates
  • Cube : Intermarché-Circus-Wanty
  • Dare : Uno-X Pro Cycling
  • Factor : Israel-Premier Tech
  • Giant : Team Jayco-AlUla
  • Lapierre : Groupama-FDJ
  • Look : Cofidis
  • Merida : Bahrain Victorious
  • Pinarello : Ineos Grenadiers
  • Ridley : Lotto-Dstny
  • Scott : Team DSM-Firmenich
  • Specialized : Bora-Hansgrohe, Soudal-QuickStep, TotalEnergies
  • Trek : Lidl-Trek
  • Wilier Triestina : Astana-Qazaqstan

Read on for more details of each team’s bikes, wheels and other kit.

What’s new in Tour de France tech?

New bike launches.

Colnago V4Rs Dura-Ace Di2

Since last year’s Tour, the Colnago Prototipo ridden to second place by Tadej Pogačar has finally become the Colnago V4Rs and been released for us to review – and anyone with deep enough pockets to buy.

Look Blade 795 RS.

Rather like the Colnago, the new Look 795 Blade RS ridden by Team Cofidis has been in plain sight for months, but was only officially launched earlier in June.

Its profile is similar to many other pro bikes with front-end integration, aero tubes and dropped seatstays, but is a departure from Look’s previous pro-level race bikes.

As per the usual playbook, Look says the new bike is stiffer and more aero.

There are more subtle changes to the Canyon Aeroad . Canyon has yet to announce details, but there are slight changes to the tube profiles and the seatpost clamp has moved from the rear of the seat tube to the top of the top tube.

EF Education Easypost's Cannondale SuperSix Evo Lab71 at Paris-Roubaix 2023

The changes to the Cannondale SuperSix EVO are equally small but significant, with the fourth generation of the bike lighter and more aero – and in LAB71 format significantly more expensive.

Other new bikes bubbling under include an update to the Factor O2 VAM , BMC’s new aero road bike and a new Ridley bike , also aero.

One thing all these bikes have in common is there’s not a cable or brake hose in sight. In part, that’s down to all the groupsets ridden now having wireless connections between the shifters and the derailleurs.

It’s also due to the brake hoses running exclusively internally. Since they’re invariably hydraulic, there’s no loss of braking efficiency, however sharp the bends and no matter how convoluted the routing becomes.

Tubeless wheels and tyres have mostly taken over

Almost all teams are now running tubeless tyres in place of the pros’ favourite tubulars. There are good reasons for this beyond the lack of potentially carcinogenic and addictive solvents in the tub cement (more of an issue for the team mechanics than the riders).

Matej Mohorič of Bahrain Victorious has claimed tubeless tech can lower rolling resistance by up to 15 watts per tyre. Paired with the latest aero wheel designs, that’s a huge margin.

You’re also less likely to need a wheel swap at a crucial point in the race, with sealant helping to cope with punctures, although unlike tubs you can’t ride a flat tyre to the finish or while waiting for the team car to give you a wheel swap.

28mm tyres are also increasingly taking over from 25mm, even on the smooth tarmac generally enjoyed on the Tour. Riders often sub in time trial tyres for road tyres, due to their lighter weight, although they in general offer less puncture protection than the best road bike tyres .


One team that has remained on tubs is Astana-Qazaqstan, although it’s in the process of swapping from Corima wheels that don’t offer a tubeless rim, to HED which does.

Component choices

SRAM Red AXS power meter crankset on a Movistar Team Canyon Aeroad CFR at the 2023 Giro d'Italia

As in previous years, Shimano dominates the teams’ drivetrain choices, with just three teams on SRAM (Jumbo-Visma, Movistar, Lidl-Trek) and one (AG2R-Citroën) on Campagnolo – one down on 2022 with the defection of UAE Team Emirates to Shimano at the beginning of 2023.

There’s more on Campagnolo Super Record below, but an unlaunched update to SRAM Red AXS has been spotted. With SRAM focusing on the launch of its updated Force AXS groupset earlier in 2023, it seems likely that a new version of Red AXS will be announced sooner rather than later.

We’ve seen an increasing acceptance of single chainrings in races earlier in the season, such as Paris-Roubaix , and that may extend to flatter stages in the Tour, when the small chainring is little used.

Expect 2x setups to take over in the mountains again though, yet even there Primož Roglič showed that a single ring with a wide-range cassette was a winning option.

There’s more variation in wheels than drivetrains, with the aforementioned Corima and HED, as well as Reserve, Vision, DT Swiss, Roval, Newmen, Black Inc, ENVE, Bontrager, Zipp and Cadex all represented.

Campagnolo goes wireless

Super Record Wireless

Campagnolo is providing its Super Record groupset to just one team this year, AG2R Citroën. However, it has dispensed with wires, with the recent launch of the new Super Record Wireless groupset.

As with SRAM Red AXS , the consumer version of Super Record Wireless uses smaller chainrings paired to cassettes starting with a 10-tooth sprocket and rising to just 29 teeth as the largest sprocket option. However, the pros are likely to stick to closer ratios for all but the toughest stages.

There are a couple of interesting things to watch out for here: first, are all the riders using the latest Wireless groupset?

When Shimano Dura-Ace went 12-speed last year, there were still teams using the older 11-speed Dura-Ace long after the official launch, due in large part to the new groupset’s scarcity.

Will Campagnolo have got its manufacturing and distribution ducks in a row better than Shimano?

Wout van Aert's Cervelo Soloist at Paris-Roubaix 2023

Second, with SRAM Red AXS, there are a series of chainring options designed specifically for the pros, which are larger than the chainrings on the complete cranksets available for consumer purchase.

That’s partly because pros like to push larger gears at their elevated riding speeds (winner Jonas Vingegaard averaged over 42kph throughout the entire Tour last year).

It’s also because the chainline and the degree of curvature of the chain as it passes over the jockey wheels and cassette make small, but significant, differences in drivetrain friction. Therefore, riding in a larger sprocket nearer the middle of the cassette is an easy marginal gain. It’s also the reason why OSPW systems are used by the pros.

Will we see AG2R Citroën riders using larger chainrings, perhaps borrowed from the previous generation of Super Record, with Campagnolo Super Record Wireless at the Tour?

Tour de France 2023 bikes

All 18 WorldTour teams ride the Tour de France and every one of them gets the pick of the best bikes from their sponsors’ ranges. That includes all teams using 12-speed wireless/semi-wireless electronic groupsets on their road bikes and a choice of top-spec carbon wheels.

The invited Pro Continental teams (Israel-Premier Tech, Lotto-Dstny, TotalEnergies, Uno X) too are on top-spec bikes and equipment – there’s no second best here.

2023 Tour de France bikes — your definitive guide to what the top pro cycling teams are riding this year

2023 Tour de France bikes — your definitive guide to what the top pro cycling teams are riding this year

First Published Jun 28, 2023

Let’s check out the bikes and equipment that the world’s best road cyclists will be riding in the Tour de France.

There are 18 WorldTour men's teams in 2023. All of these will race the Tour de France along with four wildcard teams that have been invited to compete.

Of the WorldTour men's teams, 12 use Shimano groupsets, only one runs Campagnolo and the rest are on SRAM. Perhaps the most unexpected shift (no pun intended) for this season was made by UAE Team Emirates, which dropped Campagnolo as its component sponsor along with other Italian components from its bikes. This might have left quite a few Italians mortified, as the UAE team are now running very Italian Colnago bikes with very much not Italian Shimano groupsets...

In terms of the teams themselves, the men’s WorldTour roster has seen two new teams in 2023: Alpecin-Deceuninck and Arkéa-Samsic. Both Israel-PremierTech and Lotto–Dstny have left the World Tour but they take part in the Tour de France as wildcards alongside TotalEnergies and Uno-X.

Without further ado, let's have a look at the bikes... 

AG2R Citroën Team

2023 BMC Team Machine SLR AG2R Citroen Team

We also spotted a new BMC bike being used by team members at the Criterium du Dauphine, and it's likely to see more action in the Tour de France.

> BMC prototype aero superbike spotted at Dauphine

We can also spot something that has become a rarity in the WorldTour: Campagnolo groupsets and wheels.

2023 Dauphine AG2R Campagnolo Super Record - 1

Yes, AG2R Citroen is the only WorldTour team that is running a Campag groupset in 2023. It'll be interesting to see if all of the riders are on the brand-new version of Super Record.

> Campagnolo ditches iconic thumb shifter and goes wireless with new Super Record Wireless electronic groupset... and it'll cost you £4.5k

The team bikes also feature Italian-quality components, with Pirelli tyres and Fizik saddles.


2023 Dauphine Canyon Aeroad - 1

Alpecin-Deceuninck were only promoted to the WorldTour level this year, which might come as a surprise given riders like Mathieu van der Poel and Jasper Philipsen are in its line-up. 

2023 Paris Roubaix Mathieu van der Poel © Zac - 1 (2)

Spec-wise, the team run Shimano’s Dura-Ace Di2 groupset and wheels. The tyres are Vittoria – usually the new Vittoria Corsa Pro – and the team sit on Selle Italia saddles. 


2023 Dauphine Arkea Samsic Bianchi Oltre RC - 1

French team Arkéa-Samsic have welcomed Bianchi  as their bike sponsor to replace Canyon, having the Oltre RC, Specialissima and Aquilla TT at their disposal.

2023 Bianchi Oltre RC Arkea Samsic - 1

The bikes come with Shimano groupsets and wheels, except for TTs where the wheels are Vision. The team uses Continental tyres and Selle Italia saddles.

Astana Qazaqstan

2023 Astana Qazaqstan Wilier action - 2.jpeg

Mark Cavendish's Kazakh team is continuing with Wilier Triestina bikes: the Zero SLR and Filante SLR models, equipped with Shimano groupsets and Corima wheels...

2023 Dauphine Wilier Filante HED wheels - 1

...although they've also used wheels from HED, which isn't a sponsor, this year. Those huge blue logos are hardly subtle.

2023 Astana Qazaqstan Wilier action - 1 (1).jpeg

For time trials, the team swaps onto the Wilier Turbine. The fresh “chrome-painted graphite” paintwork of the Wilier frames has impressed art lovers and bike enthusiasts alike. 

Bahrain Victorious

2023 Bahrain Victorious Merida Pearl - 1

Bahrain Victorious are using the same trusted Merida bikes as last year, with the Reacto, Scultura and Warp TT models forming the line-up – but in a Pearl finish especially for the Tour de France. It's a "homage to Bahrain’s rich pearling history", apparently.

2023 Dauphine Bahrain Victorious Merida - 1

Shimano Dura-Ace remains the groupset, the wheels are Vision, the saddles Prologo and finishing kit is handled by FSA.



Even though they’ve been a World team since 2017, it was only last year we saw Bora-Hansgrohe win their first Grand Tour when Jai Hindley smashed the Giro d’Italia  and became the first Aussie to win the Giro. 

2023 Dauphine Bora Hansgrohe Specialized Tarmac SL7 - 1

The German team rides Specialized bikes, the US brand being a key sponsor. Specialized supplies it all: the Tarmac SL7 for the road, Shiv TT for the time trials, Roval wheels and Specialized tyres. Groupsets are Shimano Dura-Ace Di2, and the saddles and the finishing kit come from both Specialized and Shimano subsidiary PRO. 

2023 Look 795 Blade RS road bike  - 2 (1)

> Look unveils lightened 795 Blade RS road bike and disc brake-equipped 796 Monoblade RS time trial bike

Cofidis has moved from Campagnolo to Shimano this year, which means they had an opportunity to introduce yet another French brand, Corima, as the wheel sponsor. The tyres on those wheels are from Michelin.  

EF Education-Easypost

2023 Dauphine EF Education Cannondale SuperSix Evo - 1

The American team, well known for their bold kit designs, sticks to the same bunch of sponsors as before: Cannondale bikes with Shimano groups, Vision wheels and Prologo saddles.

The riders are on the Cannondale SuperSix Evo (above) which was updated earlier this year.

> Cannondale launches new aero-optimised SuperSix Evo 4 with threaded bottom bracket — all the details + first ride review

2023 Dauphine EF Education Cannondale SystemSix - 1

They also have the SystemSix aero road bike which, launched back in 2018, must surely be the next Cannondale bike to get a refresh.


2023 Dauphine Lapierre Xelius SL - 1

The French team entering its 28th season is continuing its long-lasting partnership with Lapierre bikes, which come equipped with Shimano groupsets and wheels.

2023 Dauphine Lapierre - 1

In terms of models, the Xelius and Aircode framesets are the go-to options.

Ineos Grenadiers

Ineos Grenadiers Geraint Thomas 2023 Pinarello

Another team with very few changes: Ineos Grenadiers continues to ride the Pinarello Dogma F and the refreshed Bolide TT.

2023 Dauphine Ineos Grenadiers Pinarello Dogma F - 1

The groupsets are Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 and the wheels are usually from Shimano too – although the team has been known to dip into the Lightweight and Princeton ranges in its search for those famous marginal gains. 

The tyres are Continental, the saddles Fizik and the finishing kit is from Pinarello's MOST brand. 


2023 Dauphine Cube Litening C-68X Aero Intermarche - 1

The Belgian team continues to ride Cube bikes equipped with Shimano groupsets, Newmen wheels and Prologo saddles.

Riders can choose either the superlight Cube Litening Air C:68X or the Litening C:68X Aero for lower drag. The Aerium C:68 TT is there for time trials. 

> Cube launches Litening AIR C:68X Series road bikes with a claimed frame weight of 799g

Israel - Premier Tech

2023 Factor Israel Premiertech © Zac WiLLIAMS (t-a Photography Hub Ltd) - 1

Pic © Zac Williams (t-a Photography Hub Ltd)

UCI ProTeam Israel Premier Tech rides bikes from Factor, usually the Ostro VAM (above). However, we know that Factor is releasing a new bike on 10th July 2023, the first Tour de France rest day, which suggests it’s a road race model that’ll play a part in this year’s race. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled.

Israel Premier Tech use wheels from Factor’s Black Inc brand fitted with Maxxis tyres.

Although the riders use FSA chainsets, the shifters and derailleurs are Shimano Dura-Ace Di2.

Jayco Alula

2023 Dauphine Giant Propel Groenewegen Jayco - 1

Team BikeExchange-Jayco has had a slight name change to Jayco AluIa but the team’s bikes stay the same with riders on Giant’s Propel Advanced SL, TCR Advanced SL (above) and Trinity TT.

Wheels are from Giant's Cadex brand and Shimano is the main equipment partner. 


Jumbo-Visma won the Tour de France last year with Jonas Vingegaard and the team roster for this year's race includes huge names like Wout Van Aert and Christophe Laporte, as well as the defending champion.

2023 Dauphine Jumbo Visma Cervelo Vingegaard - 1

Cervelo is still the bike supplier to both the men's and women's teams, although the S5 (above), R5 and P5 models are now equipped with SRAM groupsets instead of Shimano. Vingegaard used a 1x (single chainring) setup for some stages of the Criterium du Dauphine. It'll be interesting to see if he takes the same approach in the Tour.

> Is Vingegaard going 1x for the Tour de France?

Wheels are new too, with the teams riding on Reserve hoops. 


Trek-Segafredo has just changed its name to Lidl-Trek. At the time of writing, it remains to be seen whether the riders will be racing immediately on bikes with updated livery.

The Trek Madone and Emonda road bikes are the usual weapons of choice, with the Speed Concept for time trials. 

SRAM supplies the groupsets while Trek's Bontrager brand provides pretty much everything else.


Lotto–Dstny use bikes from Ridley, usually the lightweight Helium or the aero Noah. However, we spotted a prototype being ridden by Maxim Van Gils in the Criterium du Dauphine, and it doesn’t look like any bike from the existing range.

2023 Dauphine Ridley prototype - 1 (1)

> New Ridley road bike breaks cover at Critérium du Dauphiné 

We don’t have a name or a launch date yet but it looks like Ridley is combining light weight with aero features – which has been a big trend in the road bike market over the past few years.

2023 Dauphine Ridley prototype - 4

Lotto–Dstny uses Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupsets, DT Swiss wheels and Vittoria tyres.

Movistar Team

2023 Dauphine Canyon Ultimate Movistar - 1

Movistar continues to ride Canyon bikes – the lightweight Ultimate (above) and the aero-optimised Aeroad (below). 

2023 Dauphine Canyon Aeroad Movistar - 1

The team uses SRAM Red eTap groupsets, Zipp wheels and Fizik saddles. 

Soudal Quick-Step

2023 Specialized Tarmac SL7 Soudal QuickStep Yves Lampaert - 1

After yet another name change (the eighth, if you’re counting), Soudal Quick-Step races the 2023 season with trusty Specialized bikes and Roval wheels, saddles, tyres and finishing kit. Groupsets are still from Shimano.

2023 Dauphine Scott Foil Team DSM - 1

Scott returns to provide the DSM men's and women's teams with bikes, the Foil RC being the popular choice for most stages. 

> Check out our review of the Scott Foil RC Pro 2023

2023 Dauphine Scott Foil - 1

The groupsets are Shimano Dura-Ace Di2, the wheels are Shimano and wrapped on them are Vittoria tyres. Scott’s subsidiary Syncros is providing all of the finishing kit, including the saddles. 


2023 Dauphine Specialized Tarmac SL7 TotalEnergies Boasson Hagen - 1

Although it’s a UCI ProTeam rather than a WorldTeam, TotalEnergies boasts riders of the calibre of Edvard Boasson Hagen and Peter Sagan on the Tour de France start list.

2023 Dauphine Specialized Tarmac SL7 TotalEnergies Boasson Hagen - 1 (1)

The team is sponsored by Specialized so uses Tarmac SL7 road bikes and Royal wheels.

2023 Dauphine Specialized Tarmac SL7 TotalEnergies Boasson Hagen - 2

This is yet another team that uses Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupsets.

UAE Team Emirates

2023 Dauphine Colnago V4Rs Trentin - 1

The UAE Team Emirates riders have used the Colnago V4RS road bike this year after Tadej Pogačar raced on the prototype version in 2022.

It's all change regarding the groupset, UAE Team Emirates switching from Campagnolo to Shimano.

Pirelli tyres have been swapped to  Continental , and the wheels are now Enve.

UNO-X Pro Cycling Team

2023 Dauphine Dare - 1

Uno-X has changed little for 2023. Norway's Dare continues to be the bike and finishing kit sponsor – a brand that's little known in the UK. The bikes come equipped with Shimano groupsets and DT Swiss wheels.

That is a lovely looking bike to be fair. Probably their only decent looking tour level bike in the last 10 years though. The aria also looks good, but not tour level.

Watch a guide to the Tour de France

The Tour de France is the world's biggest annual sporting event.

Normally held in July, the event sees nearly 200 cyclists race over 2,000 miles in just 23 days.

While most of the race takes part in the towns, cities, countryside and mountains of France it also often starts in a foreign country.

And it's absolutely free to watch - you just have to get there early to beat the crowds and find a place to stand!

So do you know your yellow jersey from your polka dot? Your mountain stage from your flat?

If not, Newsround is here to help you enjoy this epic race!

More on cycling

How tough is the Tour de France?

Top tips to get into cycling

What is it?

Tom Pidcock

Basically, it's a huge bike race around France!

Millions of people line the route that's made up of 21 stages raced over 23 days - that means they only have two days off to rest. Ouch!

Twenty-two teams from right across the world are involved in the Tour, with each having up to nine riders.

The riders average around 25mph over the entire course but at some points they'll go a lot faster than that, sometimes over 70mph!

Tour de France crash

Every wondered why the riders are so thin? Well, it's fair to say it's a good way to keep fit.

If you finish the gruelling Tour, you could burn off up to 118,000 calories.

That's the equivalent of 26 chocolate bars per day!

Who is the champ?

Tadej Pogačar, Jonas Vingegaard and Geraint Thomas

The reigning champ is 26-year-old Danish rider Jonas Vingegaard.

He won a dramatic Tour in 2022, beating his big rival - and the 2020 and 2021 champ - Tadej Pogačar.

The Slovenian cyclist became the youngest rider in 110 years when he won first the yellow jersey in 2020.

In third place last year was Welsh Olympic cycling legend and former Tour winner - Geraint Thomas. although he won't be taking part this in 2024.

What do the coloured jerseys mean?

Mark Cavendish in green Jersey

The Tour is like one big race with lots of smaller races going on inside it.

Riders might race for each stage win or to earn the right to wear one of the famous jerseys, which can change hands many times during the race:

The green jersey is the points prize. You get points for being one of the first riders over the line on each stage. It's usually won by a sprinter.

But the tour isn't just about reaching the highest speeds - it's also known for its uphill struggles. The riders climb thousands of metres up Alpine mountains, with the best rider on those stages winning a snazzy red and white polka dot jersey .

The white jersey is given to the best young rider - that's someone who's under 25 years old.

Martin finds out how tough the Tour is

But the prize everyone dreams of is the yellow jersey . Riders compete fiercely to even have the chance to wear it for one day during the race, let alone to be wearing it as the winner at the end.

If you are wearing the Maillot Jaune (Yellow Jersey) it means you are the overall race leader on total time since the start of the Tour.

Tour champions are often strong at everything - climbing, sprinting and time-trialling.

Meet the kids taking on the Tour's biggest cycling challenges

The race is broken up into 21 different parts or 'stages' and it isn't just flat roads. The Tour takes the riders up into the mountains too.

The different stages have different names:

Prologue : Each rider races against the clock in a short (usually under six miles) time trial.

Flat : Despite the name, it doesn't necessarily mean it's perfectly flat. Usually it's big packs of competitors riding together in a big group or 'peloton' for around 125 miles. These end in one of two ways - a 'breakaway' victory by an individual or small group, or typically with a hair-raising bunch sprint.

Time trial: A race against the clock. Similar to a prologue but a little longer. These are shorter stages of around 30 miles (as opposed to 100-125 miles). Sometimes riders do it by themselves, sometimes they ride as a team

Mountain: These come in all shapes and sizes, climbing from sea level to 2,000 metres sometimes more than once in a day. Tough!

So is it all about individuals?


No. It's a big team event but each team has a leader who is very important. The team leader is usually the strongest rider.

The other team members are traditionally called domestiques , from the French word for servants.

These riders work hard in every stage to protect their team leader.

They even have to go and fetch water for him (and everyone else) if he needs a drink and if he gets a puncture, they will wait while the team mechanic changes his wheel. Some even have to hand their bike over to him if he needs it!


The star-man will ride behind his team mates - they protect him from the wind which makes it easier for him and he gets less tired.

Their reward is a share of the prize money and the glory of contributing to a successful team.

When the race is going on, lots of riders often ride in a big group called the peleton .

This is when they all ride together in formation to save energy - a bit like a flock of birds.

Does it only take place in France?

tour de France Yorkshire

No - it regularly nips into other countries that border France and sometimes the race even starts in another country.

The first two days of racing, the Grand Depart, are traditionally held in a new location every two years.

It was in London in 2007 and in 2014 the Tour started in Yorkshire. In 2023 it's in Bilbao in Spain.

Did you know?

Since 2014, Yorkshire has hosted its own cycling race inspired by hosting the Grand Depart, called the Tour de Yorkshire, which now takes place every year.

How did it start?

tour de france

The race was started by Henri Desgrange as a publicity stunt back in 1903.

He came up with the idea of a bike race around France in order to raise the profile of L'Auto, the newspaper he worked for.

The first race was a huge success with 60 riders covering an amazing 1,500 miles.

2025 Tour de France to start in Lille and northern France

112th edition could include cobbles and testing coast roads in first week

The 2025 Tour de France will start in the northern city of Lille, with the Grand Depart and the opening four stages expected to be held in the Hauts-de-France Region, between the English Channel, the border with Belgium and the capital Paris. 

Tour de France organisers ASO confirmed recent reports of the Grand Départ, with details of the opening stage to be revealed at a special press conference in Lille on November 30 in Lille. 

“In 2025, the Hauts-de-France Region, the Nord Department and the Lille European Metropolis will host the start of the 112th edition of the Tour de France,” ASO said.

The Tour de France last started in the Nord de France area in 2001 when Christophe Moreau won the prologue time trial and pulled on the first yellow jersey.

Tadej Pogacar intrigued by atypical 2024 Tour de France finish

Lille-Nord de France will be the first Grand Départ in France since Brest and Brittany hosted the Grand Depart in 2021. The 2022 Grand Boucle started in Copenhagen, the 2023 race in Bilbao in the Basque Country, while the 2024 Tour will start in Florence, Italy.

According to local media reports, the 2025 Tour de France will start in Lille and then follow the northern coast and head into Normandy and Brittany, two of the heartlands of French cycling. 

The proximity to the route of Paris-Roubaix could see the inclusion of cobbles early in the 2025 race route. In 2022, Wout Van Aert won a stage in Calais after the transfer from Denmark, with stage 5 covering the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix and finishing in Arenberg.  

Caen will celebrate its millennium in 2025, with Bayeux, Lisieux, Bernhard Hinault’s home town of Yffiniac and the Mûr-de-Bretagne hilltop finish, all possible stage finishes in the first part of the 2025 race. 

The 2024 Tour de France finishes in Nice with a hilly individual time trial due to the Paris 2024 Olympics making it impossible for the traditional Champs-Elysées finish. The Tour de France is expected to return to the capital in 2025.

The more colourful version used from 2000 to 2003, with the year added in red italics to the side, is a little more lively, but still not as fun. Grand Départ designs
