Hello, everyone and welcome to our first stage preview of the 2,021 Tour de France. Stage one is a 197-kilometer long stage between Breast and Landel No. Stage one this year looks to be a punchy affair, but nonetheless, we will see our first yellow Jersey claimed at the end of the day, although only 20 kilometers separate the towns abreast Landel No. We will be taking the scenic group on Stage one of this year’s Tour de France as we take in the beautiful scenery of the Finnish Stair County of Brittany.
The start owner, Breast will be a hub of activity in the week of the Gander Power after having hosted the team presentation on Thursday evening.
Dates: Saturday, June 26 – Sunday, July 18 (stage times below)
Rest is of course the largest city in Eastern Brittany and the home to group Harmer riders Olivier Logic and Valentine As was. Furthermore, 2,021 will be the fourth time that Best will host the Gander of the Tour to France. However, we last visited the town on Stage six of the 2,018 Tour of France. After setting off from Rest, the riders will reach kilometer zero once we crossed upon Delias, marking the starter breakaway attacks. The breakaway has s a high chance of claiming the Pocono Jersey on this stage, so some of the riders from the Breton team, such as Archaea, AMSI and BB, will be hunting a stint in Jersey.
The first chance, the King of the Mountains points will come just eight kilometers after the stage begins at the Code Abiola. It is not the toughest climb in the world as it is only 900 meters in length, but the fight for the point will be interesting nonetheless, the fourth category, Codes No n will come soon after posing more of a challenge to the breakaway at a three kilometers length, but there is no chance of the Pels I’m breaking up here. With 100 kilometers to go, the riders will pass through the city of Camper.
After the visit to this ancient city, the riders will head northwards, meaning that the wind will be approaching from a different direction. After the riders take on the Category four climb with 80 kilometers to go, the peloton will come to the intermediate sprint Impas PA.
This is where we will see the first glimpse of who the green Jersey contenders will be, so expect to see Sam Bennet in Peter Sagan measure their effort here. After the sprint, the riders will then snake around the Panatela on Adamole covering the Category four Climb of the Codesa Bala at 47 kilometers to go. The final 50 kilometers will be challenging for the riders as they take on an undulating approach through the windy Monday to the finish in London. The riders will pass through the town itself with five kilometers to go.
However, the bunch will be racing until the three kilometers to go marker, where the peloton will tackle a sharp succession of corners that could decide the favorites positioning into the final climb.
So the stage will finish on the cuddle for solo. This climb is under three kilometers long and at A-5-7 average. The hardest part of this climb will come at the beginning as the slopes hit up towards the 10% marker. However, the gradients are for the first kilometer that is a lot more forgiving the final 500 meters, in fact, will be at A-1-2 gradients. Nevertheless, at the top of the Cordella for solo, we will see first yellow Jersey was of this 2,021 to a France confer.
Now, who could be the man to win the first stage of this year’s race? Well, we have to factor in the perennial battle between Motif One Pool and Mad fernad. This stage finish has the potential to provide either of these riders with their debut yellow Jersey. After a successful ride at the TUDA Suits. One could say that motion the pull has the upper hand.
But while Fanart can never be ruled out, especially as he has been training with Rorich over the past month. Outside of those two, Caleb UN has been looking sprightly this season. After climbing or at the Page and the judo finish to taramori, Caleb might want to finally get that cover to yellow Jersey. We also can’t forget about the current world champion, Jr. Ala Philip of the Cone.
Quickstep. If I’m a Philip can attack early on on the climb, it’s possible that he would become the first Frenchman to win the first stage of the Tour de France since Kite More in 2,001. Anyways, that’s everything from the Stage one preview for this year’s Tour de France. Comment down below. Who you think going to win and what surprises do you think will be in store on the first stage?
