A prologue of 5 kilometers, a time trial by squads of 26 and three high finishes will be the keys to the 57th edition of the Tour del Porvenir, which will be held from August 13 to 22, according to the organization of the French cycling event. The start will take place in Charleville-Mézières with a 5-kilometer prologue from where the first leader will start. Another time trial, but in teams, will take place two days later over a 27 km route before celebrating the decisive mountain stages in the Alps.

The alpine stages will provide a show for the last 4 days of the race, starting with a half-mountain day and ending with three goals at the top that will solve the general classification. The scenarios will be the Grand Colombier (17.3 kms at 7.2%), Saint Jean d'Arves (5 kms at 5.4) in a short day of 60 kms and the Col du Petit Saint-Bernard (26, 5 kms to 5) to finish, a day that includes the Col de l'Iseran, the top of the race at 2,764 meters of altitude. The Norwegian Tobias Foss, from the Jumbo, became the last winner in 2019, since the 2020 appointment was canceled due to the pandemic.
