Stage city for the 1st time
Sub-prefecture of Yvelines (78)
44 000 inhabitants
In 2020 the sub-prefecture of Yvelines will join Versailles, Rambouillet or Saint-Germain-en-Laye that have already had the privilege of hosting the start of the final stage of the Tour. The inhabitants of Mantes should recognise quite a few faces in the peloton having already welcomed Paris-Nice: the first time in 2012 for the start of a stage finishing in Orléans where Tom Boonen conquered his 100th professional victory; then two years later on a course around the city that Nacer Bouhanni won ahead of John Degenkolb. In 2018, Anthony Roux became in Mantes the French Champion.
