Geraint's last chance for a second Tour victory, would you say, Rosey?
Possibly, although it's not certain G will be the strongest in his own team as Richard Carapaz looked in very good form in the Tour de Suisse according to reports. I expect Richie Porte who is also in good form winning the Dauphine to revert to super domestique duties. Ineos do look like the form team this season although I would not write off the usual suspects from Jumbo-Visma who also are fielding a formidable looking squad although Primoz Roglic is downplaying his chances after an injury lay off.

Jumbo-Visma (Hol) – confirmed team: Robert Gesink (Hol), Steven Kruijswijk (Hol), Sepp Kuss (US), Tony Martin (Ger), Primoz Roglic (Slo), Mike Teunissen (Hol), Wout van Aert (Bel), Jonas Vingegaard (Den).

Tadej Pogacar has proven he can win it almost freelancing but UAE look a bit stronger this year and could give him better support with Rui Costa and David de la Cruz. And then it has been a trend recently for a youngster to jump out from the pack before expected.

Can't wait for it to start.
