LE TOUR DE LYCRA: FROM DÜSSELDORF TO PARIS

cobbles:


It’s that time of year again; the Tour de France is about to start. My summer has officially started!

Le Tour de France, its 104th edition, consists of 21 stages covering 2,220 miles. Riders will have to pedal their bikes across sun-drenched, rain-soaked and wind-swept roads, occasionally cobbled. They will also to climb some big mountains in the rain, sun and possibly even snow. It's one of the toughest races in the world.

The Tour starts today in rainy Düsseldorf and ends in just over three weeks later on 23 July on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris.

The winner of the yellow jersey is the rider who rides to Paris in the least time. The other contested jerseys are the green jersey given to the best sprinter, the polka dot jersey awarded to the best climber and the white jersey bestowed to the best young rider.

I think this Tour will be a very close and even an open race. Because there are fewer time trials this year, this suits the riders attempting to beat Chris Froome to Paris. I think the race will be a duel between Team Sky’s Chris Froome and BMC Racing’s Richie Porte. It's UK versus USA, or Kenya versus Australia depending on how you see things!

However, Team Sky has selected a very strong supporting team for Chris Froome, who is a phenomenal albeit slightly unorthodox rider, so I predict Chris Froome to wear the yellow jersey in Paris for the fourth time in five years.

Team Sky is unlikely to win the support of most spectators because of ongoing doping allegations surrounding the team, though not about Chris Froome - he's clean, please! Last year Team Sky riders were spat at, were punched and had urine thrown over them.

Some pundits think that Movistar’s Nairo Quintana will win, but the Colombian rider has just participated in this year’s Giro d’Italia and though he nearly won the winner's pink jersey I think he will be too tired to win the yellow jersey in Paris.

A few pundits think Trek-Segafredo’s Alberto Contador will don the yellow jersey but at 34 years of age he’s no longer the force that he once was, albeit when he had some doping assistance!

Much to the chagrin of the French, a French rider hasn’t won the Tour de France since 1985 and I don’t think that run will end this year, but I do think AG2R La Mondiale’s Romain Bardet will make the podium in Paris.

So, my predicted one, two, three finish for this year’s Tour is Chris Froome, Richie Porte and Romain Bardet in that order - see photos below.

Who do you think will win the yellow jersey in Paris?


It’s Canada’s 150th birthday today. I want to wish all my Canadian friends a very happy Canada Day. To mark the special day, a very special prize will be awarded to the first person to correctly answer this question.

Who was the last Canadian to ride in the Tour de France?

Per usual, I’ll be blogging about the Tour de France over the coming few weeks. I know you love seeing photos of men clad in lycra!

I love to watch the tour de France Spunky. Hesjedal comes to mind for a Canadian rider. He competed at the Giro d'Italia, however he dropped out of the race on the fourteenth stage due to stomach problems

The first stage is about to start. I predict Katusha-Alpecin's Tony Martin will win. Given the Le Grand Depart is in Düsseldorf, the German rider's victory would be a big crowd-pleaser.

Will you be following Le Tour de France? No, I find it to be disinteresting knowing that the majority of the contestants are cheating.

Who do you think will win the yellow jersey in Paris? No idea.

Who was the last Canadian to ride in the Tour de France? I have no idea.

I do hope you get to enjoy the race though. The scenery is nice but would be better without all those bikes in the way.

what an amazing shot that is with all the bicyclists in the field of sunflowers. absolutely stunning.

I don't care who wins but I love the eyes candy of the riders. such good looking athletes, lean and muscled.

Ryder Hesdejal is right. And you were very quick. I hope you'll accept the prize!

I think professional road racing has sorted out the industrial-scale team-doping of the Lance Armstrong era - his claim was that he was the best doped rider of all the other doping riders! Nowadays it's about individual riders getting caught, which seems to be the case for most other sports.
Times on le Tour have dropped significantly which suggests the authotiies are gradually getting on top of things.

Le Tour is going Team Sky's way so far. Despite the jiffy bag incident, which was baffling given then their cleaner-than-thou pronouncements, Team Sky just control things because of their team of very accomplished riders. Obviously it's down to money!

I don't think Peter Sagan should have been kicked out. It's that elbow thing as you find in football - is it all about gaining balance or is it all about being a weapon?!
It's a shame Sagan has been kicked out and Cavendish has had to retire because of Sagan's elbow, as they were both great narratives in Le Tour.
It's Rafa and Roger for Wimbledon!

I thunk Merckx could win it Le Tour; aside from today's stage which was a race, it's been a very quiet Tour apart from the Sagan/Cavendish thing!

This Tour is proving to be a very open and brutal tour - several top riders have already crashed out!
Ryder Hesjedal was the Canadian to ride the Tour.
