Paris-Nice enjoys its 90th anniversary in 2023 as it takes its traditional place as the first major stage race in Europe. Run by the ASO, organisers of the Tour de France and Paris-Roubaix, the race has eight stages from 5 - 12 March.

The "Race to the Sun" hasn't started in Paris proper since 1962 and for the 14th year in a row, the WorldTour event departs from the Yvelines department. La Verrière will host the first stage, a relatively flat stage that will suit the sprinters.

Paris-Nice facts

Discipline: Road stage race

Category: WorldTour

First edition: 1933

2022 edition

Key stages include a 32.2 kilometre team time trial in Dampierre-en-Burly on stage 3, the first TTT in the race in 30 years. Organisers say they will take the time of the first rider across the line rather than the fourth rider, as is tradition, in an attempt to stop one team from dominating the general classification.

In the 2022 edition of Paris-Nice, the Jumbo-Visma team passed the yellow leader's jersey from Christophe Laporte, to Wout van Aert and finally to overall winner Primož Roglič, and organisers are keen for that to not happen again.

A new summit finale on stage 4, with a finish at the La Loge des Gardes ski resort, will shake up the GC even more, while the final stage to Nice with the Col d'Eze in the final 15km is always one for the gamblers.
