Starting in Copenhagen and covering three stages in Denmark before the transfer to Dunkerque, the best sprinters, stage racers and breakaway artists in the world will be on the starting line of the most-anticipated race of the year.
Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) de France, the Col du Galibier.
The race begins with a 13-kilometer trial time in Copenhagen, a test of strength and nerves as riders vie to wear the first maillot jaune of race leader. Most potentials for crosswinds and echelons are high. The Classics specialists will shine on stage 5 that covers 11 sectors of pavé, some of which are used in Paris-Roubaix.
Stage 6 from Binche to Longwy gives the puncheurs a shot, with a sharp climb to the finish. It will also be the first major summit finish on the Planet des Belles Filles – the same climb that won the 2020 Tour de France when featured in the final time trial.
From stage 7 on the course to the climbers and breakaway artists, with stage 12 to Alpe d’Huez and stage 18 to Hautacam the key stages for the overall contenders.
Will it be Pogačar for three in a row? Can Jumbo-Visma balance Primož Roglič’s GC ambitions and Wout van Aert’s green jersey push? Will Adam Yates recover from COVID-19 in time to lead Ineos Grenadiers’ challenge? All these questions and more will feature in the lead-up to the Grande Depart on July 1.
