The 6th stage of the Tour de France between Mâcon and Dijon

The 6th stage of the 2024 Tour de France takes place between Mâcon (Saône-et-Loire) and Dijon (Côte-d’Or) this Thursday. On the program for the peloton: 163.5 km that Christian Prudhomme, the director of the Grande Boucle, details for us.

Christian Prudhomme, the director of the Tour de France, analyses for France Bleu this 5th stage, from Saône-et-Loire to Côte-d’Or, a route of 163.5 km. “It’s a flat stage for the sprinters without a doubt from Saône-et-Loire to the Côte d’Or, where we will spend three days. It’s a stage with a few evocative names along the route, so perhaps more for the followers, for the journalists or for the fans in front of the TV or on the radio, but for the riders the entry into the Côte d’Or will be via Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, Meursault… In short, magnificent landscapes, places that smell of the terroir and a finale in Dijon – where we hadn’t been for almost 30 years, where the Critérium de Dijon usually takes place -, on the very wide Cours Charles-de-Gaulle, for a truly royal sprint without a doubt.”

“The setting of the Tour de France is a determining element that magnifies the achievement of the champions. The Tour de France is the greatest cycling race in the world. Thanks to the dominant view from the helicopter, it highlights our heritage, our landscapes and our land too and it is an element that is obviously inseparable from the success of the Tour de France, broadcast in 180 countries around the world, that is to say that for tourism in the world’s leading tourist country that is France, the postcard offered each year by the Tour is an undeniable asset.”

An incredible setting “which magnifies the achievement of the champions”
