Assuming ITT World Champion Filippo Ganna will makes his forst appearance on the Tour de France, the Italian powerhouse is the riders to watch. In 2020, he was in a class of hos own when it came to time time trials. He won all races in which he started. The flat to undulating course to Laval suits his characteristics just perfectly.
