With the two-time Tour participant, we analyze the starting positions of the favorites: Dane Jonas Vingegaard, who currently holds the yellow jersey, and defender Tadej Pogačar, who is now second in the standings.
The Slovenian lost the lead at the end of the climb to the finish of the 11th stage. “It looks like his legs have completely stopped and you can’t do anything about it… Maybe he paid a little for his aggressive style… Maybe he made some mistake about eating…” Vakoč thinks aloud.
However, Geraint Thomas and Romain Bardet can also have a say in the fight for the overall championship, so we also look at their chances. We were also intrigued by Tom Pidcock, who won the stage at Alp d’Huez, previously won gold at the Tokyo Olympics on MTB and is the cyclocross world champion.
We also focused on the track for the last week of the Tour de France, especially the other mountain destinations – Peyragudes and Hautacama.
We were also impressed by the current holder of the polka dot jersey, Simon Geschke from the Cofidis stable. And the French stable also plays a major role in our competition. You can win one of three Cofidis jerseys by correctly answering a question found in the show.
