This is an event awaited by lots of people: cyclists on one hand because they are worn out by the race and on the other hand, supporters, since the race has captivated cycling enthusiasts for years.
Everyone wants to cheer champions on Paris most beautiful avenue and it is possible to see them from Montgeron to the Champs-Elysées.
For safety and organization reasons, the Champs-Elysées will be closed to traffic on Sunday July 23 from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m., even though the first racing cyclists will arrive at 6 p.m. for eight rounds from the Concorde to the Place de l’Etoile.
