Want to know which Tour de France stages will decide the race?

Want to know which Tour de France stages will decide the race?

This isn't just because the more successful Froome becomes at winning Tours, historically speaking, the more his chances of further triumph decrease.

Mark Cavendish - who has won 30 Tour stages - was the man who took the crown prior to Sagan's ascendance, but the Briton may struggle to find his best form after a recent bout of glandular fever.

Australian Richie Porte yesterday dismissed talk of him being the Tour de France favourite as mind games by rival Chris Froome's Sky team.

"I think it could be free for all". Three other riders stand out in terms of performances this year in time trials.

Amaury Sports Organisation (ASO), organisers of the Tour de France, and Dimension Data, its official technology partner, have announced the introduction of machine learning technologies at this year's Tour de France to give cycling fans across the globe an unprecedented experience of this year's event.

The French public have warmed to the rider, that surreal moment of him running up Mont Ventoux when his bike snapped putting him into Tour folklore in an altogether different manner.

"In the past, I worked for the team, now I'm happy that the team has entrusted me with trying to be as competitive as possible in the stages that suite me most".

That said, there are still some surprises - such as the fact that half of the previous overall winners also won the race's first mountain stage.

London council evacuates residents amid fire safety concerns
A major evacuation is under way on a London housing estate over fire safety fears in the wake of the Grenfell Tower disaster. Detective Superintendent Fiona McCormack says officers have seized documents in the investigation into the fire.

The three-time Tour victor is in Dusseldorf for this weekend's Grand Depart, and is poised to extend his stay with Team Sky until 2021. I wouldn't want to be doing anything else.

Düsseldorf: The 104th Tour de France begins alongside the River Rhine in the German city of Duesseldorf on Saturday, the start of 3,540 gruelling kilometres for the 198 riders.

My favourite for the stage should be familiar with the start city for today's stage, as the current world individual time trial champion Tony Martin fights for yellow in his home country of Germany. I think we've got the right team and I'm ready as well to do my best.

"The UK now has some serious strength in depth across all types of terrain, so expect to see GB riders contesting daily wins, especially in the medium mountain stages".

Geraint Thomas is one of the most tenacious riders I know.

Boardman explained: "With six climbs and a double-kick finish (there's a little descent with 5.5km to go) anyone attacking on the penultimate ascent over the Col de Peyresourde will be hard to pull back, particularly if it's wet".

"I have plenty of fond memories of riding the Tour".
