The GC battle commences as early as the first week with a TTT on the second day and a summit finish at the steep Planche des Belles Filles on the sixth day of action. This year’s Tour de France serves the Pyrenees in the second week, while the Alps are tackled in the third.
Likely contenders in the battle for the maillot jaune are Egan Bernal, Thibaut Pinot, Adam Yates, Jakob Fuglsang, Steven Kruijswijk, Richie Porte, Daniel Martin, and title defender Geraint Thomas. Dylan Groenewegen, Elia Viviani and Caleb Ewan are the sprinters to watch, while Peter Sagan, Matteo Trentin and Michael Matthews will be eyeing the more hilly races. Breakaway-experts on this Tour de France are Thomas De Gendt, Julian Alaphilippe and, possibly, Vincenzo Nibali, who are also likely to battle it out for the polka dot jersey.
