    The Tour de Normandie cycliste professionnel 2024 will offer a more than varied playground for the participants! There will be 4 stages, including a time trial, across the five departments of Normandy.

    Opening time trial
    "When we transformed the event last year, we listened to the comments made and we designed the 2024 route taking them partly into consideration," explains Arnaud Anquetil, president of the organizing committee. One request came from the women's peloton: the introduction of a time trial! This will now take place at the opening of the four stages. "The town of Bagnoles de l'Orne was a candidate to host the main start. So it will be a 10.3 km time trial around the town," explains Arnaud Anquetil.
    The international peloton will then head between the Eure and Seine-Maritime regions on the second stage, between Le Neubourg (27) and Pavilly (76). "This stage is unprecedented and is cut in two. Before a steep finish and an uphill finish, we'll have straight lines at the start and then the Pont de Brotonne, which will offer great opportunities for teams wishing to race in windy conditions", explains the organizer, who will switch to the other side of Normandy for the 3rd stage. "We can't do all 5 departments without transfers," warns Arnaud Anquetil to anyone who points out that the transition between the second and third stages is long.

    Passage through the 5 departments of Normandy
    Between the foot of Coutances cathedral and the finish in the north Cotentin region at Martinvast, the stage is open to all scenarios. "The roads in the final stretch are steep and can be used by a breakaway, but also by a solo rider to make the difference," explains the organizer, who has mapped out the 425 km route from March 14 to 17, 2024.
    The final stage between Villers Bocage and Caen will be no mean feat! "It's clearly the highlight of the Tour de Normandie 2024! There's not much rest time. We'll have 4 climbers listed on this stage, and we'll be doing a passage up the dreaded Côte de la Rançonnière, with its passages exceeding 12%," says Arnaud Anquetil.

    The loop will then be completed for this edition, which will be contested across all the departments of Normandy. Cédrine Kerbaol, winner of the 1st women's Tour de Normandie 2023, will know the name of her successor at the end of this 2024 edition, with stages longer than those proposed when the Breton won ahead of Normandy's Gladys Verhulst and Martina Alzini.

    The stages :
    stage 1 (individual CLM): Thursday March 14: Bagnoles de l'Orne (61) - 10.3 km
    stage 2: Friday, March 15: Le Neubourg (27) - Pavilly (76) - 136.8 km
    stage 3: Saturday, March 16: Coutances (50) - Martinvast (50) - 137.3 km
    stage 4: Sunday, March 17: Villers Bocage (14) - Caen (14) - 138.4 km
