Trocadero - Pont d'Iena Cycling Road


Trocadero - Pont d'Iena Cycling Road

If the Eiffel Tower wanted to cross the River Seine to reach Trocadéro, it would take the Pont d’Iéna bridge. 155 metres long and 35 metres wide, Pont d’Iéna is one of Paris’ 37 bridges that cross the River Seine. Located at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, it will be part of an area dedicated to the Games in 2024, including the neighbouring Trocadéro live site. In 2024, Pont d’Iéna will offer an exceptional viewing platform and experience for spectators and television audiences for the triathlon, para-triathlon, road cycling, athletics (marathon and 20km race walk) and swimming (10km marathon swimming) events. Built between 1808 and 1814 by the engineer Lamandé, Pont d’Iéna is made up of five arches spanning 28 metres, in a circular arc, and four intermediary pillars. It connects Quai Branly, the Champ de Mars and the Eiffel Tower on the left bank to the Trocadéro gardens on the right bank. During the Games, Pont d’Iéna will be fully fitted out with overlay facilities making it possible to welcome spectators under the best conditions, while offering a unique experience for the athletes.

Cycling Road, a cornerstone of the Olympic Games, tests endurance and speed on diverse courses. The competition features road races and time trials, challenging cyclists to cover varying terrains and formidable distances.

The history of Olympic Cycling Road spans decades, showcasing meticulous course design that emphasizes athletic prowess and host city landscapes. Arduous climbs, thrilling descents, and intense sprints characterize road race events, while time trials highlight individual mastery of time-trialing techniques.

Nations like Belgium, Italy, and the Netherlands stand out, with cyclists consistently delivering remarkable performances. Eddy Merckx, "The Cannibal," remains a luminary, securing multiple Olympic medals in the 1960s and 1970s.

Looking to Paris 2024, the road race route promises excitement, starting from the Trocadero and guiding both men's and women's pelotons through the scenic Chevreuse Valley. The groundbreaking moment will see men and women sharing the same time trial route, creating a spectacular round trip from Les Invalides to the Bois de Vincennes, concluding at the iconic finish line on Pont Alexandre III.
