Tour de France 2021 Favourites stage 3: Fast finishers showdown #1
With stages 1 and 2 favouring the punchers, the next two stages are perfect for the pure bred sprinters. Sam Bennett was dominant in 2020, is he going to resume his green campaign in 2021?
Last year, the Irishman ended Peter Sagan’s green jersey dominance. He also clinched two stage wins, as did Caleb Ewan.
The 2019 Tour de France saw Ewan take three triumphs, while Groenewegen took two. In terms of sprint victories, the 2018 edition ended in a draw between Groenewegen and Gaviria: 2-2.
Both Groenewegen and Gaviria are unlikely to participate in the 2021 Tour de France. Their teams – Jumbo-Visma and UAE Emirates – are focused on winning the yellow jersey, with Roglic en Pogacar respectively. Furthermore, Jumbo-Visma have Van Aert in their ranks, who can do it all – winning sprints and helping his leader in the high mountains.
Obviously, the start list is not yet confirmed and it remains to be seen who is on form this summer, so we’ll update this article later.
