Saturday, July 5, the 2014 Tour de France starts in Leeds, England. It’s a flat stage – looks like a preconceived plan to help Mark Cavendish take on the first yellow jersey. In 2013 he didn’t succeed at Corsica due to a crash, will he be more lucky in his homeland?
The next two stages are in the UK as well. Stage 3 of the 2014 Tour finishes in London, after which the Tour caravan moves to the mainland. Riders face a leg with cobblestones on the fifth day. In total the 2014 Tour will have six top finishes en there’s only one time trial, on the penultimate day.
