Paris–Nice 2019

The Paris-Nice 2019 begins on Sunday 10th March with an out and back stage in Saint-Germain-en-Laye and finishes on Sunday 17th March with a mountain stage in Nice. The 77th edition of the race features the famous Col d’Eze climb in the final section of the last stage, which concludes with a 15 km ascent at 7.3% to the top of the Turini Pass.

The current title holder is Marc Soler (Movistar Team), who beat Simon Yates (Team Mitchelton-Scott) and Gorka Izagirre (Astana Pro Team) to round off the podium. Soler returns this year to defend his title.

The route

The Paris-Nice 2019 begins with three stages for the sprinters to get some stage wins under their belt. The more testing stages begin on stage four as the race moves from Vichy to a hilly circuit around Pélussin. A 25.5 km individual time trial on stage five is likely to be a key stage in the race for the title.

Stage six favours the sprinters once more with a bunch sprint likely, or a breakaway winner. Stages seven and eight takes the peloton into the mountains. Stage seven features four intermediate climbs on the tough Turini Pass. The last stage, stage eight, is a short and explosive route with six intermediate climbs. The ultimate climb being the Col des Quatre Chemins is a tough 5.5 km climb at 5.5%, before a final 9 km descent into Nice to the finish line.

The favourites

Soler will be hoping to retain his title but will face a strong list of challengers. Simon Yates and Gorka Izagirre will also return to try and go one better and win the title, while strong climbers like Nairo Quintana (Movistar Team), Romain Bardet (Team AG2R La Mondiale), Richie Porte (Team Trek - Segafredo) and Miguel Angel Lopez (Astana Pro Team) will also fancy a shot at the title. Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Sky) is a clear threat to the general classification contenders as well, along with Ion Izagirre (Astana Pro Team) and Egan Bernal (Team Sky).

A strong list of fast men hoping for stage wins includes Mark Cavendish (Team Dimension Data), Caleb Ewan (Team Lotto Soudal), Alexander Kristoff (UAE-Team Emirates), Dylan Groenewegen (Team Jumbo-Visma), Andre Greipel (Team Arkéa Samsic) and Arnaud Demare (Team Groupama - FDJ).
