2022 Tour de France Betting Lines
Date: Friday July 1, 2022 – Sunday July 24, 2022
Start: Copenhagen, Denmark
Finish: Paris, France
Total distance: 3,328km
Stages: 21
Riders: 176
Teams: 22
Defending champion: Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates)

The 2022 Tour, the 109th edition, follows the modern trend of starting outside its home nation. In the past decade the Grand Départ has taken place in Belgium, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Germany, as well as as France, and this year will be staged in Denmark’s capital city, Copenhagen.

The 2022 Tour de France opens with a short 13km time trial in Copenhagen; an opportunity for the specialists against the clock to take the first yellow jersey. The two remaining stages in Denmark, finishing in Nyborg and Sønderborg respectively, will favour bunch finishes and the sprinters, but will also make it easier for the yellow jersey to retain their lead.
