The Tour De France Faces Major Disruption Due To Paris Olympics

October 25, 2023

Next summer’s Paris Olympics will cost organizers at least $4.5 billion — but the Games will also severely upend one of the most storied international events on the sporting calendar.

On Wednesday, the Tour de France released its official route for the 111th edition of the cycling race in 2024, with a notable omission. For the first time since 1905, the race won’t finish in Paris — and won’t even go through the French capital at all during the 23-day event. FOS
