The Tour de France makes a historic change and moves the last stage from Paris.  The main potential for replacement

According to the Italian publication La Gazzetta dello Sport, the final stage of the race would also be five days ahead of July 21 to avoid interfering with the Olympic Games.

The capital of France, Paris, has hosted the final stage of all 108 editions of the Tour de France since 1903, and has hosted the Champs-Élysées since 1975.

By convention, the leader of the overall standings is usually undisputed on the last day of the Tour.

Nice, a town on the French Riviera in the south-east of the country, is about to replace Paris for the final stage, Gazzetta reports, while Italy will host for the first time the Grand Départ on Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence on June 29.

According to plans, the first four stages of the 111th edition of the Tour de France will start in Italy, covering the regions of Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna and Piedmont.

This will be the third year in a row that the start of the Grand Tour will take place outside France, the capital of Denmark, Copenhagen, will host the first stage this year, and Bilbao, Spain, will have this honor next year.

Race organizer Amaury Sport Organization declined to comment.

The Tour de France would not be the first major sporting event in the country to be moved from Paris to 2024.

Stade de Vélodrome in Marseille is set to host the Top 14 rugby final in the 2023-2024 season, with the Stade de France not available as it is used for Paris 2024.

The Olympic Games in the French capital are scheduled for July 26 to August 11, 2024, and the Paralympic Games are to be held between August 28 and September 8.

The tumultuous situation in front of the Stade de France ahead of last month’s men’s UEFA Champions League final has raised concerns about the security of the Games.

Organizers plan for at least 600,000 spectators to line up along the Seine River for the opening ceremony.
