TOUR DE FRANCE: Grand Départ Copenhague 1 July
One of the world's best cycling countries welcomes the world's greatest cycling race, 1 - 3 July 2022.
In Copenhagen, the world's best cycling city, the Tour de France starts further north than it has ever done before. Every year, many Danes travel to France to experience the race first-hand from the roadsides of France. When the Tour de France is suddenly hurtling through the streets of their own capital in 2022, it is easy to imagine the huge turnouts and red-and-white celebrations.
Tour de France 2022 starts off with a 13-kilometre individual time trial. The world's best riders take on the streets of Copenhagen in a race for the yellow jersey. The flat route through the Danish capital and world's best cycling city has no sharp turns, letting the riders gain full speed. For TT specialists dreaming of a stage win and a yellow jersey, aerodynamics is key through the entire stage. The GC favourites will work hard to reduce the time loss.
The Copenhagen individual time trial will be breath-taking action. The route is short and fast. 13 kilometres through broad streets and only a few sharp turns.
Along the route, the riders pass iconic landmarks such as The Little Mermaid and Amalienborg, home of the royal family, which cycling fans will remember from the 2011 UCI Road World Championships. In addition, the riders will pass the busiest cycling-lane in the world, Dronning Louises Bro, which 40,000 cyclists cross every day.
In the official Fanpark at Kgs. Nytorv you can experience everything from the team presentation and 1st stage on the big screen, musical elements, French specialties, chill zone, find merchandise in the official store and much more.
