The Tour de France is the th edition of the cycle race, one of cycling's Grand Tours. The time trial was held in wet conditions, which saw numerous riders crash. Alejandro Valverde Movistar Team and Ion Izagirre Bahrain—Merida suffered the most serious of these crashes, with both riders forced to abandon the Tour. The riders then crossed into Luxembourg and travelled through Troisvierges. The race then had an uphill finish on the 1.
In , the Cannibal also took his first maillot jaune in the place where he spent his early years. The 2nd stage is a rolling team time trial of The boulevards in Brussels are wide and straight, so top speeds are to be expected. The 3rd stage starts in the fortified Wallonian town of Binche and concludes with a punchy finale in the Champagne region in the north of France. The battle on GC ignites on the sixth day when the race ventures into the heart of the Vosges mountains.
These all come too early to have any serious impact so the peloton will be jostling for a bunch sprint as they tackle a finale that includes the towns of Waterloo — a gift for the headline writers — and Woluwe-Saint-Pierre, childhood home of Eddy Merckx. On the map, a long flattish stage heading south, with a routine bunch sprint, but there is a sting in the tail. A classic day when at least one will lose the Tour. A second long day in a row, but this one will end in a bunch sprint unless it rains and there is some action over the final climb, 15km from the finish. Best described as Vosges-lite, skirting three sides of the massif with two second and two third category climbs to shake up the pack. There is a good chance that an early escape will stay away today as keeping a team chasing will be hard in the tough finale — two climbs in the final 35km — while behind the move the peloton will be whittled down to 30 or A good day for a strong breakaway rider such as Thomas De Gendt or Matej Mohoric, one where the favourites will want to avoid losing time or expending too much energy, with day six in mind.
The Tour de France was a multiple stage bicycle race held from 1 to 23 July, and the 87th edition of the Tour de France. It has no overall winner—although American cyclist Lance Armstrong originally won the event, the United States Anti-Doping Agency announced in August that they had disqualified Armstrong from all his results since , including his seven Tour de France wins from to ; the Union Cycliste Internationale has confirmed this verdict. The Tour passed through Switzerland and Germany. Before the race started, there were several favourites:  Armstrong, after his Tour de France victory; Jan Ullrich , having won the Tour de France , finishing second in the and tours, and not entering the Tour due to an injury; and Tour winner Marco Pantani. Richard Virenque finished 8th place in the Tour despite bad preparation, and for the edition he was considered an important rider. The race thus started with cyclists. The teams entering the race were: .
