The 2023 Tour de France will start from Bilbao, Spain

Bilbao will be the starting city of the Tour de France 2023. The Grande Boucle will start from Spain for the second time in its history, again from the Basque Country, 21 years after the prologue to San Sebastián in 1992.
After Denmark and Copenhagen in 2022, the Tour de France will start again from abroad in 2023. The Grande Boucle will start from Spain and more precisely from the Basque city of Bilbao, we learned from the organizers of the Grande Boucle.

21 years after San Sebastian

In 1992, a great start to the race had already been given from the Spanish Basque Country with a prologue won by the future winner Miguel Indurain. The Tour de France recently made a brief excursion to Iberian soil, during the 16th stage of the 2018 edition (between Carcassonne and Bagnères-de-Luchon) won alone by the current world champion Julian Alaphilippe.

Since the great start of the Tour de France in San Sebastian in 1992, elected officials have never stopped writing or being in contact with us in order to be able to welcome the Tour again. This desire, which has been reiterated for thirty years, deserves a gesture on our part. In addition, in the Basque Country there is an ideal location for organizing a cycling competition. There is also one of the best audiences in the world here. With a terrain for an exciting race, great landscapes and the enthusiasm of the public, all this gives a winning cocktail for cycling.“, explained Christian Prudhomme, according to comments reported by The team.
