After years of elbowing the sprinters out of the frame, the Tour de France organizers offer an olive branch to the fast men in the bunch with plenty of opportunities in One of the best photographs of was the stage 11 finish-line stabs of the speeding quartet.
The opening weekend is packed with explosive uphill finales, so the pure sprinters will likely hold their matches until stage 3. Looping around western France, there could be some risk of crosswinds, and the narrow, twisting roads of Brittany always ramp up the nerves.
Momentum is key in any Tour, and so is the pressure to win. This is a route which suits the Jumbo-Visma team to a core — whether it's Wout van Aert enjoying an opening week in yellow, or their two GC riders Primoz Roglic and Tom Dumoulin coming to the fore in the mountains.
Defending champion Tadej Pogacar will have no fears looking at what's on offer, while France's long wait for a winner would feasibly come to an end with a balanced parcours that does not close the door on the likes of Julian Alaphilippe, Thibaut Pinot or Romain Bardet.
While ASO have branded their offering as a "ground-breaking route" there's very little seismic shift of note. It's a gamble to sandwich a final time trial with two sprint stages — but the severity of the Pyrenean phase before should do enough to keep entertainment levels high.
Tour de France. Races — Results. Will the sprinters be happier? There are probably seven opportunities which is as much as and there now seems to be a house policy at ASO to avoid multiple sprint stages.
The time trials look ideal for Tom Dumoulin but that depends on whether he can recover form last seen in , similar for Geraint Thomas and the relative short distance caps their gains and Chris Froome gets a course to work towards too.
Remco Evenepoel might fancy his chances. The same for Thibaut Pinot who can sometimes do a good time trial but prefers a hilly course, Nairo Quintana even more so.
Maybe the organisers think the tour needs to be more distinguishable from the Giro and the Vuelta in terms of parcours? The start in Brittany played its part, crossing the flat lands meant several sprint stages in a row so they wanted to drop a time trial in for variety.
They can be much easier to control than more rolling terrain. So in recent years the bigger the mountain stage sometimes the more the big trains can make them quite boring.
Good to see the often dismissed and less wealthy Pyrenees Orientales feature, and the return of the Col du Puymorens for the first time since , a classic from the 60s and 70s.
Interesting to hear the reason behind the downhill finishes, makes perfect sense I suppose. I wonder, though, how long it will be until a top GC man or two crashes and the whole thing is considered a bit too risky.
The exchange rate between climbs and time trials is interesting. The Angliru is about as hard as any climb can reasonably be and even there the time differences were tiny really, if we consider Carapaz as a climber and Roglic as a time trialist.
Historically its the climbs that have provided all the myth and drama at Grand Tours with all sorts of heroic stories from Coppi, Gaul, Merckx and whoever else.
Now its the time trials. You pretty much have to have a time trial as the last proper stage to decide who the winner will be or else the top riders, whoever they are, will be more or less tied on time after following each other up to the top of a series of hills.
Everyone is a climber. And everyone seemingly is towards the upper limit of how fast you can possibly go up a hill.
Top prospects are always good against the clock as they are climbing up the mountains. It just feels that way.
Big Mig. Conversely pure climbers rarely win GTs. Lopez basically a Colombian Virenque — or, a lesser Quintana.
And Lopez a Colombian Virenque… go upstairs and wash your mouth out with soap. Virenque was my first cycling hero, despite all the obvious stuff.
More importantly idea has been to have more suspense that lasts longer and one way of doing this is to have a bigger cast of characters in contention late into the race.
Kind of, but historically Gaul, Van Impe, Pantani etc were the best climbers of their era and could outclimb the GC men even if they did get mowed down in the TT though I think Gaul was quite good at TTs, but we all probably would be if we got stuck into enough amphetamine.
