PARIS – The next Tour de France will start in Denmark. It will also be raced in Switzerland and the peloton will also visit Belgium. The prestigious cycling series offers stages in Dunkirk and Lourdes and there are five mountain stages in the itinerary. The organizers informed the public about the details of the track on Thursday.

The 109th edition will start the inaugural 13-kilometer time trial in Copenhagen. It will also follow the “cat’s heads” as in the Paris-Roubaix race, the first mountain fights will be offered by La Planche des Belles Filles, the organizers have also confirmed the return to the legendary L’Alpe d’Huez. Further peaks are planned in the Pyrenees, the penultimate stage will be a time trial of 40 km.

Five challenging mountain stages await riders. “It’s a race with a little bit of everything. Whoever wants to win will have to be a complex rider, because at high altitude there are five goals and one even at an altitude of 2400 meters,” AFP quoted one of the authors of the track, Thierry Gouvenou.
