The edition of thewill definitely be very special. Already postponed to the end of the month (from August 29 to September 20), the Grande Boucle will be organized under very strict sanitary conditions. After long discussions with ASO, the organizer of the Tour, France Télévisions decided to review its technical device: "We are heading towards a plan B, with the commentators in Paris", explains to JDD Laurent-Eric Le Lay, the director des sports de France Télés. The quartet of commentators, composed of Alexandre Pasteur, Laurent Jalabert, Marion Rousse and Franck Ferrand, will therefore remain in the studio, far from the Tour route.

Further route details are to follow at the presentation of the Tour of France on October 29 in Paris. The originally planned start in Copenhagen had been postponed to 2022. This is to avoid scheduling conflicts with the European Football Championship, for which the Danish capital is planned as one of the venues.
The "Vélo Club" also remains at the quay
Le Vélo Club, the magazine distributed after each stage, should also be filmed in Paris, and no longer at the finish line. The rest of the system does not change for France Télévisions: Thierry Adam and Thomas Voeckler will be as close as possible to the race on the two motorcycles of the group, and the interviews of the riders will be provided on site at the start and finish of the race by Rodolphe Gaudin and Nicolas Geay, in compliance with physical distancing measures. Despite this unusual protocol, the sports boss of France Teles says he is "confident about the audiences" of the group during the Tour.
