What to know

Trek-Segafredo hoped the addition of Richie Porte in 2019 would transform the team into a Tour de France contender; Porte fought valiantly but finished 11th. Now, the American squad is back, again chasing the GC with Porte at the helm. On paper, this route does not suit the Australian, who is a top individual time trialist. The squad will likely chase stage victories with Bauke Mollema, Toms Skujinš and Jasper Stuyven.

Our take

Porte will be lucky to crack the top-10. We’re more interested in whether or not Mollema, Stuyven, or Skujinš are able to score a breakaway stage win after years of trying.
