The 2024 Tour de France is set to be an exceptional edition, starting in Florence and Emilia-Romagna, Italy, and concluding in Nice, France, instead of the traditional Paris finish. From June 29th to July 21st, cyclists from around the globe will compete not just for glory but also for substantial financial rewards. Here’s a comprehensive guide to the distribution of over €2.57 million in prize money for this prestigious race.

This year’s Tour promises intense competition, with top General Classification (GC) riders such as Tadej Pogacar, Jonas Vingegaard, Remco Evenepoel, and Primoz Roglic vying for the yellow jersey. These elite cyclists are expected to be the highest earners, as the GC winner takes home a massive €500,000, with significant payouts for podium finishes and top-20 placements. The substantial rewards reflect the gruelling nature of the race and the prestige associated with winning or placing highly in the Tour.

The 2024 route is designed to challenge even the most seasoned cyclists, featuring two individual time trials, multiple high-altitude finishes, and the iconic Col du Galibier and Col du Tourmalet climbs. These stages are not only crucial for determining the overall winner but also offer special prizes such as the Souvenir Henri Desgrange and Souvenir Jacques Goddet, each worth €5,000.

Total Prize Money

A grand total of €2,573,202 will be awarded across various classifications and stages, offering significant financial incentives alongside the coveted titles.
