Tour de France 2020 Favourites stage 11: Royal sprint in Poitiers
Fast finishers are expected to battle it out at the end of the 11th stage. They don't get much opportunities to show themselves this Tour de France, but this is definitely one of them.
The riders set off from coastal town Châtelaillon-Plage to navigate the interior of western France. On flat to rolling roads the peloton heads for a finale out of the sprinter’s textbook. The finale in Poitiers is a flat and 1.5 kilometres long straight. Now, that’s what you call an open invitation to a a sprint finish.
Caleb Ewan debuted in last year’s Tour de France with three stage wins. He was the most successful sprinter of that edition.
With two wins Van Aert is the most successful sprinter in this Tour de France, while Kristoff, Bennett and Ewan alle took one victory.
