July 20 mountain stage, 133 km

The stage features a course renowned for its intensity, with 4 cols.
Over this relatively short distance, every climb can become a fierce battleground, starting with the ascent of the Col de Braus.

Cyclists won't have time to rest as they climb the Col de Braus, Col de Turini, Col de la Colmiane and finally the Col de la Couillole, the latter offering a particularly tough challenge with its 15.7-kilometer climb at an average gradient of 7.1%.

→ Col de Braus : 24.7 km - 1002 m - 10 km climb at 6.6%
→ Col de Turini 59.8 km - 1607 m - 20.7 km climb at 5.7%
→ Col de la Colmiane 95.9 km - 1,500 m - 7.5 km climb at 7.1%
→ Col de la Couillole: 133 km - 15.7 km climb at 7.1%
→ Highest point: 1,678 m Col de la Couillole

July 21 stage: 34 km time trial

The spectre of the legendary 1989 time trial, when Laurent Fignon lost the Yellow Jersey to Greg LeMond on the Champs-Élysées by just eight seconds, still looms large.
Thirty-five years on, the excitement of a potential tight duel, whether between two or three riders, still stirs the spirits.
This decisive confrontation could well determine the winners of the podium at the 111th Tour de France.

For the first time, the finish of the Tour will not be in Paris but in Nice, more precisely on Place Masséna, not far from the famous Promenade des Anglais.

La Turbie 11 km - Altitude: 491 m - Ascent 8.1 km at 5.6%
→ Col d'Eze d'Eze 17.1 km - Ascent 1.6 km at 8.1%.
