    Bilbao, the most populous city in the Basque Country, will host the start of the 110th Tour de France on Saturday 1 July 2023.

    The peloton of the Grande Boucle already converged in Spain for the 1992 Grand Départ, which was also held in the Basque Country, specifically in San Sebastián. In addition to the Pyrenean stages that pass through the country now and then, nine Spanish towns and cities have hosted a Tour stage start or finish. Bilbao will join the club in 2023 as the show gets on the road with a loop stage. The second stage will also take place entirely within the borders of the Basque Country.

    Le départ de la 110e édition du Tour de France sera donné de Bilbao, la ville la plus peuplée du Pays Basque, le samedi 1er juillet 2023.

    Auparavant, le peloton de la Grande Boucle s’était déjà réuni en Espagne en 1992 pour un Grand Départ à Saint-Sébastien, également au Pays Basque. Hormis les visites lors d’étapes pyrénéennes programmées en France, neuf villes espagnoles ont accueilli des départs ou arrivées d’étapes du Tour. Bilbao deviendra la dixième en 2023, pour une étape en boucle le premier jour, tandis que la deuxième étape sera aussi tracée à 100 % dans le Pays Basque.
