Tour de France contenders
Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) heads to the Tour de France as the number one favorite having won the race for the last two years. The Slovenian had the entire UAE Team Emirates squad at his disposal as he looks to secure a third straight title in the race.
Jonas Vingegaard and Primož Roglič will lead the line for Jumbo-Visma. Both riders have finished second to Pogačar in recent years and will be looking to make it onto the top step of the podium for the first time in their careers.
Daniel Martinez, Geraint Thomas and Adam Yates will spearhead a strong-looking Ineos Grenadiers with the British team unable to count on the 2019 winner Egan Bernal. However, Richard Carapaz, third in the Tour de France in 2021, is skipping the race this year.
Aleksandr Vlasov — winner of the Tour de Romandie in April — will target the yellow jersey for Bora-Hansgrohe, while Ben O'Connor will be looking to improve on his fourth-place from 2021.
Tour de France route
The 2022 Tour de France is the biggest bike race in the world. The 2022 route is a race with “a bit of everything” according to course designer, Thierry Gouvenou. The 21-day, 3,300-kilometer route brings in nearly all aspects of racing, including big climbs, long time trials, and rough cobblestones.
Starting in Copenhagen, this year’s Tour de France will kick off with a 13-kilometer pan-flat time trial that will define the early part of the race. Some sprint opportunities follow before the next big challenge of the cobbles on stage 5.
The first big summit finish immediately follows the cobbles with a ride up the brutal Planche des Belles Filles and the week will close on stage 9 with the uphill finish on the Châtel les Portes du Soleil.
Week two will begin in the mountains with finishes on the Col du Granon Serre Chevalier and Alpe d’Huez coming on stages 11 and 12. The Galibier will be ridden in both stages with the riders tackling a different side each time.
Following a long wait, the sprinters will come to the fore at the end of the second week with a couple of chances for glory in Saint-Étienne and Carcassonne.
The crucial final week begins in the medium mountains before another tough double-header of summit finishes on the Peyragudes and the Hautacam. A sprint stage into Cahors will be a buffer before the decisive 40-kilometer flat individual time trial between Lacapelle-Merival and Rocamadour.
As is traditional, the race will conclude with a sprint stage into Paris.
Tour de France sprinters
Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl has decided to leave last year's green jersey Mark Cavendish at home and will instead build its sprint train around Fabio Jakobsen.
Caleb Ewan will be hoping to make up for his poor showing at the Giro d'Italia with a stage win or two, while Dylan Groenewegen, Mads Pedersen, Alexander Kristoff and Jasper Philipsen will all feature.
