Organisers unveiled the whole 2023 Tour de France route on October 27, 2022.

The 110th edition of cycling’s biggest race involves just a solitary 22km hilly time trial in the Alps and mountain levels in all five of France’s mountain ranges on the road amongst the Grand Départ in the Basque Nation and the end in Paris.

The extremely restricted amount of money of time trialling and preponderance of mountains no doubt fits French riders Thibaut Pinot, David Gaudu and Romain Bardet. As a consequence, Remco Evenepoel, Primoz Roglič and Geraint Thomas are more probable to focus on the Giro d’Italia, which has 3 instances the volume of time trialling and fewer mountains.

Formal information from race organiser ASO claimed the 3,404km route involves eight flat phases for the sprinters, four hilly stages suited to breakaways and 8 mountain phases. 4 of these involve summit finishes: in the Pyrenees at Cauterets-Cambasque, on the legendary Puy de Dôme volcano in the Massif Central, on the Grand Colombier in the Jura and at Saint-Gervais Mont-Blanc in the Alps.
