Tour de France To Be Held Globally In 2022
With the Tour de France being held in different countries every year, it makes sense that the event would be held in multiple locations at once—it’s called the Tour de France, after all! In 2022, the race will be held simultaneously in France and Japan, where it will end with a stage through Tokyo’s famous Shibuya Crossing. This will be only the second time the Tour has been held outside of Europe; it was also hosted in Canada in 2010 and 2018.
What is behind the decision ?
The Tour de France is one of most iconic sporting events in history. It has captured global imagination since its inception over a century ago and has earned legendary status. The competition takes place annually and runs across France, with each leg of competition going through different towns and cities. This year’s competition was won by Chris Froome of Great Britain, with 9969 points beating his nearest competitor Richie Porte (Austria) into second place with 9463 points. The third placed rider was Belgian cyclist Greg Van Avermaet, who had 9414 points after winning three stages during the race.
Will this be more difficult?
The Tour de France is changing. This summer’s race will not be held in France but instead, start in Japan and end in London, UK. Over a million people came out to support last year’s Grand Départ and it has been announced that a similar number of fans will be able to attend next year’s start at Flanders Field Memorial in Japan, making it one of the largest sporting events ever hosted outside France. By 2022, cyclists from around 70 countries are expected to take part in what will be an international spectacle. Although initially controversial, many of cycling’s Super Teams seem confident about participating and some riders have already stated their desire to participate if selected by their respective teams.
What are the main challenges
The biggest challenge? Actually bringing cyclists together. Once you’ve got them in one place, it’s a matter of logistics and security. The race takes months to plan and execute. Even with perfect timing, thousands of people will have to be flown in—from support crews to elite cyclists—just as millions are flying out. Airports will be packed; traffic will be terrible everywhere in France; there’ll likely be protests, too. It’s safe to say that if there was an easier way to bring in a few million tourists and get them on bikes at once, France would already have done it. And even if you could manage it all smoothly, what about environmental concerns? Will carbon emissions go up or down during a global tour de France? No one really knows for sure.
Who will be there?
Tour de France is an annual multiple stage bicycle race primarily held in France. It’s one of cycling’s three Grand Tours, along with the Giro d’Italia and Spanish Vuelta a Espana. The race traditionally begins in late May with a prologue stage and finishes at various locations throughout July.
Why is this happening now?
The tour de France is a grueling two-week cycling race which stretches across France, but will now head all over the world. This decision to expand has been made to boost interest in cycling. The tour de France hasn’t been easy going in recent years, and many feel that expanding into a global event will help to attract a broader audience and involve many more countries around the world. Some say that such an expansion may prove controversial with some fans who are opposed to sports taking place outside of their native country, however it is felt that most people won’t mind as long as their team takes part in it.
How can I watch this event live?
The race’s directors are planning to stream each stage live via a global network of cameras and partners.

When and where will it take place?
The 2022 tour de France will take place in July, starting in France and ending there as well. That year is special because it’s 100 years since Le Tour was first held. The last time it didn’t start or end in France was 1974. When it started out in Holland and finished back at home with Eddy Merckx crowned champion. The dates for Le Tour are currently set for 1 to 22 July 2022. A bit later than normal to avoid clashing with other major sports events like FIFA world cup and summer olympics . The Grand Depart will be in France will finish on Champs Elysees as usual. The main reason why they chose 2022 is that its 100 years since first tour de france. So they wanted something special for that date.
