Tour de France 2018: Riders and teams

Tour de France 2018: Riders and TeamsOn Saturday, the 7th of July 2018, edition 105 of the Tour de France starts on Île de Noirmoutier, a small island off the Atlantic coast of France. As in previous years, the line-up consists of 22 teams, but the Tour de France’s peloton is reduced to 176 riders since the Grand Tour teams will field eight riders rather than nine from 2018 onwards. Chris Froome will be targeting to join five-time champions Merckx, Hinault, Anquetil and Indurain, while Vincenzo Nibali is lining up to win his second Tour de France. (Slideshow route/profile)
