Tour de France 2024

Stage 1 - Passage in San Marino

Le Tour de France, or the Grande Boucle, is the major men's professional road cycling stage race created by Henri Desgrange and considered one of the most important sporting events in the world.

The Tour de France 2024, edition number 111, will start on 29 June for the first time in Italy and will end on 21 July with an individual time trial on the French Riviera.

Stage 1 will start from Florence and after 205 kilometers will end in Rimini with seven challenging climbs and a passage to San Marino.

From a sporting point of view, this Apennine crossing will offer 3,800 m of positive altitude difference, between the rather undulating Valico Tre Faggi pass and some steep climbs, of which the last one is in the heart of the Republic of San Marino, just before the finish line.

The first cyclist will enter San Marino from the border of Chiesanuova around 15:20 and then continue in the direction of the Città di San Marino; at about 18.00, all the cyclists and the rest of the race should have left the border of Dogana in the direction of Rimini. The Florence/Rimini stage is particularly long, the San Marino stretch is the one between the 168th and 190th kilometers and includes, at Porta San Francesco in the Old Town, the finish line of the Grand Prix of the Mountain.

In Piazzale Lo Stradone there will be a giant screen that will broadcast the images of the stage from start to finish while in Piazzale della Stazione there will be the "Relais-Etape" hospitality for guests, sponsors and authorities.
