Tour de France 2022 at a glance
Kicking off on Sunday, July 1, the 109th edition of the Tour de France will be made up of 21 stages, covering 3,328 kilometers.
The race departs from Copenhagen, with a total of three stages in Denmark. In total, 176 riders will embark upon six flat stages and seven hilly stages, with six days in the mountains (five of which will end in a summit finish), as well as two tests against the clock.
Defending champion Pogačar is down to ride, but will face stiff competition from the likes of Roglič and Alaphilippe, with Brits Adam Yates and former winner Geraint Thomas also putting up a fight on French roads.
The 22 teams will take on some of the most iconic mountains the country has to offer, including the Alpe d'Huez and Hautacam, but time trial experts will look to win seconds during the 54 km of available solo racing.
The finish, as always, will be a thrilling affair with a sprint on the Champs-Elysées on Sunday, July 24.
