The 2024 Tour de France will end in a final day time trial in Nice, the race's organisers announced on Thursday.

For the first time in the race's 121-year history, the Tour will conclude far from Paris, due to the Olympic Games being held in Paris the same summer. It will also be the first time since 1989, 35 years, that the final day will be a competitive race.
