2022 marks the 109th edition of the Tour de France.
Running for three weeks from 1st-24th July, the 21 stage course will see the world's top cyclists tackle 3328 kilometres (about 2068 miles) of some of the roughest, toughest, and the most beautiful terrain in Europe. While most of the route covers north, south and central France, this year's race visits four countries in total, with the first three stages taking place in Denmark, and quick crossings over the French border to Switzerland and Belgium.

Belgium marks the third country on this year's Tour de France route, with stage 6 starting in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed city of Binche (7th July), before passing through the Ardennes and back over the French border to Longwy. Two days later the route takes the cyclists into Switzerland, passing along the coast of Lake Geneva and the city of Lausanne (9th July) before the first real mountain challenge of this year's race, the 183km Alpine stretch between Aigle and Châtel (10th July).
