The route of the 2022 Tour de France has been presented, and it promises a good spectacle for all the terrains.

Next year's edition of La Grande Bouclé will have its Grand Depart in Denmark, with three stages. The first one will be a fight against the clock of 13 kilometres in the country's capital, Copenhagen. It will then continue with two flat stages, one between Roskilde and Nyborg of 199 kilometres, and another of 182 kilometres between Vejle and Sonderborg, that are for the sprinters but in which the echelons can play a role.

After returning to French soil in the Nord department, the peloton will have an exhausting day to Calais, a stage that features part of the Paris-Roubaix route, a day for the puncheurs in Longwy and a final in La Planche des Belles Filles, in it's "Super" version and which will show a more clear view of the year's candidates for the title.

The mountains will also play a big part in the 2022 edition, with Alpine climbs like the Col du Granon and the Alpe d'Huez. Then the race will move to the Pyrenees, and on the way there the sprinters will have more chances to shine. Then the riders will face the Peyragudes right after having met the Col d'Aspin and the Hourquette d'Ancizan, and then the Hautacam after facing the Aubisque and the Col de Spandelles.

Just before the final showdown and celebrations in the Champs-Élysées, the riders will have another time trial, this time over a 40-kilometre rolling route with a finish on the Rocamadour promontory.
