Tour de Wallonie 2021

The 48th Tour de Wallonie is a cycling stage race announced to take place in Wallonia, Belgium on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, and finish on Saturday, July 24, 2021. The race will be a 2.Pro event on the UCI ProSeries this year.

The race was usually found on the UCI Europe Tour and travelled in Wallonia, Belgium's French-speaking region, at the end of July. It was only open to amateurs from 1974 and 1995. The race has been held as a 2.HC event on the UCI Europe Tour since 2005 and this has hosted the UCI ProSeries since 2020.

The Tour de Wallonie generally features a race distance of around 200 kilometres spread over five ultimate stages, while the race has competed with 4 stages in the Tour de Wallonie 2020 due to the pandemic situation. However, the stages are mostly located in mountainous areas, where cyclists have to face some challenging climbs in order to proceed with the race. The first stage is a mountainous one that starts in Genappe and ends in Héron. The cyclist will tackle a few initial slopes on their way from Verviers to Herve at the start of the second stage.

As the Tour de Wallonie settles in the hillside region for the environmental position, puncheurs will confront some ups and downs on their way. In the third stage, the rider will start the race at Plombières and finish in Erezée. For the fourth time, the stage will travel across the hills from Neufchâteau to Fleurus. The race concludes with the 5th stage, which takes riders from Dinant to Quaregnon.
