Tour de France 2017: Highlights, information, standings, and extra

Share

The 2017 Tour de France shall be interesting, certainly. Chris Froome is making an attempt to turn out to be considered one of 5 riders to ever win 3 Tours in a row, and if he wins a fourth yellow jersey, best Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault, and Miguel Indurain could have gained extra.

Standing in his method is the inner most set of challengers he has ever confronted, starting with former teammate Richie Porte. The Australian is having a stellar season with global excursion wins to Froome’s 0. He beat Froome head-to-head simply ultimate month on the Critérium du Dauphiné.

Nairo Quintana, Romain Bardet, Alberto Contador, Fabio Aru, Daniel Martin, and others may even have their say, thank you largely to a direction reputedly designed to create chaos at the common category. Two couple of minutes trials and a loss of mountain most sensible finishes will mitigate Froome’s largest benefits over the sector: His time trialing and his teammates.

Instead, the Tour options a couple of brutal, peleton-thinning mid-level climbs, like the 3-headed monster within the Massif du Jura on Stage nine, and large climbs over Galibier and Croix de Fer within the Alps on Stage 17. Stage 18, in the meantime, ends with the 3rd-best possible mountain most sensible end in Tour historical past atop Col d’Izoard.

The result’s probably probably the most extensive-open Tour we’ve noticed in a while. Froome would possibly but win once more — he’s, rightfully, the having a bet favourite — however he’ll need to battle more difficult than ever to put on the Maillot Jaune in Paris.
