...or maybe I should call it the "Ride Across France"? Weirdest route I have ever seen. Basically just bisects the country.

Almost no TT's...only 22km (uphill). Climbing starts early with lumpy stages around Bilbao and then into the Pyrennes.

Last week looks like it could be pretty brutal....

Glad to see the return of the Puy de Dome!
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

In 5 years or so, it's going to come out that the Danish Mafia infiltrated the TdF route planning committee. The Tour de Vinnie.

A tour more for Pogacar than Vingegaard. One where one has to be on guard all three weeks on various terrain rather than a few key climbing stages. No super hard stages. More for an allrounder. JV leadership frowned. I’m sure Pog is smiling. I’ll put him down as the early favourite.

. . . If Pog can restrain himself during the first two weeks. Cost him last year IMO.
