The 64th Tour de France took place from June 30th to July 24th, 1977 and ran over 22 stages with 4096 km. After 1975 , Bernard Thévenet won his second tour. 100 racing drivers took part in the tour , of which 53 were classified.

Race course

The German Dietrich Thurau won the prologue on his first Tour de France participation and was able to maintain the yellow jersey up to the 15th stage. In total, the 22-year-old was able to win four stages and finished fifth in the overall ranking. In the time trial in Bordeaux , he took 50 seconds off Eddy Merckx in his special discipline, and over a minute on Bernard Thévenet. Even Klaus-Peter Thaler won a stage in his first Tour participation.

In the Alps, Thurau was not as strong as at the beginning, and in the mountain time trial he had to hand over his yellow jersey to Thévenet, who defended it all the way to Paris. The time trial was won by last year's winner Lucien Van Impe , who won the mountain classification for the fourth time in 1977 and took third place in the overall classification. The Dutchman Joop Zoetemelk had to give up his hopes for a podium position after a 10-minute penalty in the time trial due to a positive doping test.

On the 17th stage to L'Alpe d'Huez , Van Impe fell in an attack after a collision with an escort vehicle. Due to technical problems that followed, he was unable to follow the Dutchman Hennie Kuiper and Thévenet. Kuiper won the stage and finished second overall, less than a minute behind Thévenet.

Merckx was weakened by illness on his last tour just behind Thurau sixth. The green jersey was won by Jacques Esclassan , who also won a stage. On the stage to Thonon-les-Bains , Bernard Quilfen crossed the finish line with a lead of three minutes after a 222 km solo escape .
