Tour de France 2021: full schedule, stages, route, length, TV channels and live broadcast


The Tour de France restarts at the regular time of the year.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, it started in late August 2020, and the summer staple food has returned to end in late June and mid-July this year.

Although it started late last year, it still contains many historical moments. Tadej Pogacar won the tour at the age of 21, which made him the youngest winner since Henri Cornet in 1904. He won the tournament at the age of 19. This game was also the closest finish for the 10th time in 107 years. Pogacar won Primus Roglich by only 59 seconds.

Since Pogacar is the second-ranked cyclist in the world and Roglic is ranked first, both sides hope to have another close match.

Here is everything you need to know about the 2020 Tour de France, including the schedule, stage breakdown and how to watch the race.
