Now its the time trials. You pretty much have to have a time trial as the last proper stage to decide who the winner will be or else the top riders, whoever they are, will be more or less tied on time after following each other up to the top of a series of hills.
Everyone is a climber. And everyone seemingly is towards the upper limit of how fast you can possibly go up a hill.
Top prospects are always good against the clock as they are climbing up the mountains. It just feels that way.
Big Mig. Conversely pure climbers rarely win GTs. Lopez basically a Colombian Virenque — or, a lesser Quintana. And Lopez a Colombian Virenque… go upstairs and wash your mouth out with soap.
Virenque was my first cycling hero, despite all the obvious stuff. More importantly idea has been to have more suspense that lasts longer and one way of doing this is to have a bigger cast of characters in contention late into the race.
Kind of, but historically Gaul, Van Impe, Pantani etc were the best climbers of their era and could outclimb the GC men even if they did get mowed down in the TT though I think Gaul was quite good at TTs, but we all probably would be if we got stuck into enough amphetamine.
I think it must be to do with modern training and racing. Like they know that 6. I wonder if it is self fulfilling — i. GC candidates get the top level of resources, best coaching, top sport science, nutrition planning etc that allows them to be amongst the best climbers in the world?
The days of the romantic climbers such as Robert Millar, Richard Virenque, Tommy Voeckler though perhaps not a true climber and Pantani just used to saunter off during a stage.
In and TdF Hinault and Lemond did similar sorts of raids. But since US postal team we now we have science of the trains. Teams seem to have this nailed.
This year of all years has seen us treated to the closest GTs of all time. And they have to get to the line first to pick up those bonifs.
AND there are enough of these all-round riders to give us some fine inspiration and entertainment. Accept the fact that the big spectable and drama is going to be the final TT not the final mountain stage.
At least they should try this one year. Not sure about this route, it is certainly more traditional but it does seem to be missing something, the finish at Tignes doesnt really replace one of the big alpine cols.
The Giro seems to include high altitude cols more often than the Tour these days. A ride up to a bunch of high altitude tower blocks hardly replaces the drama of, say, the Galibier.
Not sure about the concept of the extending the action by having downhill finishes, most often not much happens and it encourages risk taking by the riders.
Tom Dumoulin certainly comes to mind, Chris Froome too assuming both are recovered by then. Difficult to know where Primoz Roglic or Tadej Pogacar will be but maybe would suit either.
Perhaps this is a route for the older riders? If it wasnt for the Olympics you might even throw Rohan Dennis into the mix.
It does have the Ventoux twice but I agree it does lack some serious Alpine altitude. It lacks a Galibier, Iseran or a Bonette perhaps.
A cynic could say a bit more time trialling with few really long climbs and summit finishes, with downhill finishes instead, might be an acknowledgement that Bardet and Pinot are a lost cause and all hope is with Alaphilippe!
Same goes for Dumoulin. Froome seems to be getting just a little bit stronger each day in this Vuelta and banking a very late season GT, or even most of one, in his legs is surely going to provide a good platform for next season.
In recent years the winner of the Tour won the Tour of California the previous year. This course also looks like itll be good for a TT guy to do some marginal doping.
Do we already know exactly the roads of this stage? It might have been about the long-running feud between football and cycling fans, but it was probably just down to not having enough hotel rooms.
That's in the North West of France, for those of you who weren't dragged there on family holidays as ungrateful children.
That was a little more than I asked for, but thanks, I guess. So the race starts in Brest. What else is going to be going on in the first week?
Not a lot really. Alright, I can see you've been desperately holding back. The total distance that will be ridden against the clock is 58 kilometres.
Which makes these proper, boring time trials, just like in the old days, around a vineyard or some such.
Not these interesting, new fangled ones where the riders switch to their road bikes halfway round because they're really secret hill climbs in disguise.
Which they can. Support our race coverage. We can. Well, go on then Right, well the first thing to mention is that because this year the Tour travelled in a clockwise direction around France, in it will be going anti-clockwise.
