Tour de France 2022 Favourites stage 3: For fast men #2

Fabio Jakobsen vuelta - Tour de France 2022 Favourites stage 3: For fast men #2image: Cor VosThe 3rd stage at the Tour de France is not entirely flat. But the obstacles are not at all hard. So the sprinters are likely to have it their way.

Which means: Reeling in the breakaway in the finale, lead-out trains fighting for the perfect position, and a surge for the win by the fastest finishers in the world.

It’s not known yet which sprinters will line-up at the start of the Tour de France. Mark Cavendish, who matched Eddy Merckx’s record of 34 Tour stage victories last year, could become the sole record holder. But will he be given the chance to win again in Denmark? Team manager Patrick Lefevere has admitted that he will favour Fabio Jakobsen in La Grande Boucle. By winning three stages and the points classfication at last year’s Vuelta, the Dutchman has made a glorious comeback after his life-threatening crash in 2020.

We’ll update this article as soon as the Tour de France’s entry list starts to take shape.
