2021 Tour de France

The 2021 Tour de France was the 108th event held. The tour dates were changed so they did not clash with the Olympic Games. The event was held on 26 June to 18 July 2021.

The Grand Départ for the 2021 Tour de France was originally planned for the Danish capital of Copenhagen, but was transferred to Brittany due the coronavirus pandemic. This would have been the first time the Tour de France had visited Denmark. They will get that chance in 2022.
