The Tour de France warm up event is upon is! Still 3 days to go and 7 teams are yet to finalise their rosters, so sit tight for EF Education First, Katusha, FDJ, Lotto Soudal, Arkea, Vital, and Cofidis.
This race is a difficult one to call. Two medium mountains days to kick off, two flat days follow with an ITT sandwiched in the middle, and then two high mountains days with a summit finish sandwiched in the middle finish the race off.
Very few pure sprinters are heading to this one, but a hat full of stage hunters and GC men are in attendance.
