Cyclingnews will have live coverage and all the news and reaction from the route presentation, with major names such as Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) and Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar) expected to attend the event, though reigning champion Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) won’t be there.
The 2023 Tour de France route presentation will be broadcast live around Europe and the rest of the world – you can find out how to watch a race wherever you are with our handy guide and with ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).
Several details of the routes for the 2023 Tour de France and Tour de France Femmes have leaked ahead of time, with the men’s race set to feature a summit finish atop the Puy de Dôme as well as a team time trial, while the women’s race looks set to take in the Col du Tourmalet.
The speculation over the women’s race indicates a start away from Paris, which hosted the start this summer, while the men’s race is set to kick off over the border in the Basque Country.
As well as champions Pogačar and Van Vleuten, a host of other major names are expected to be in attendance at the route unveiling. Look out for star names such as Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Deceuninck), Demi Vollering (SD Worx), Wout van Aert, Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma), Lorena Wiebes (Team DSM), Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers), and Marianne Vos (Jumbo-Visma) as the stars of the pro cycling world gather in Paris.
