One for the attackers

The route of the Tour de France 2022 has been unveiled in its traditional venue in Paris. The Palais des Congrès welcomed thousands of people for the event, including the reigning champion Tadej Pogačar, the joint record holder for most stage wins, Mark Cavendish, and two-time world champion Julian Alaphilippe. In a historic first, riders from the women's peloton attended the ceremony to witness the birth of the Tour de France Femmes.

The 2022 Tour route is full of opportunities to go on the attack on every terrain following the Grand Départ in Copenhagen. The mountains will then set the stage for a series of showdowns to decide who gets to take the yellow jersey home.
