“Riders face a significant challenge in the stage 1 individual time trial over the roads of the French Riviera’s independent city/state of Monaco. The short, hilly stage follows a clockwise route from its start-finish near the Monaco Harbor, climbing past the Monte Carlo Casino and into French territory along the Moyenne Corniche.“
