A route that closely matches the usual closing stage of Paris-Nice features four significant climbs, the first is a 16.3km ascent of the Col de Colmaine at an average of 6.3% and comes just 60km into the race after a long false flat.
The Turine pass is 14.9km long at 7.3% and two smaller sharp climbs come close to the end – the Col d’Eze and Col des Quatre Chemins.

Talking point

Rarely does the Tour throw up such a good chance for the climbers early on, and a successful breakaway is highly possible.

Christian Prudhomme, Director of the Tour de France:
“The fabulous geography where Nice is situated is ideal for sensational cycling races. We’re ready to place a bet that on the Baie des Anges the riders of the 2020 Tour will give spectators and TV viewers a battle worth watching”
