Who will triumph at the Tour de France? Rolf Aldag, the sports director of the German Bora-hansgrohe team, talks about the subtleties in the duel between the two cycling giants Tadej Pogacar and Jonas Vingegaard.

Who will win the Tour de France?

It’s really tight and hard to predict. Especially since what was expected did not happen: that Pogacar has an advantage on the climbs in the Pyrenees due to its explosiveness and that Vingegaard has an advantage on the long climbs in the Alps. They couldn’t use their outstanding characteristics in a direct duel, only in comparison to the rest of the competition, with whom they really play. In the time trial this Tuesday (1.05 p.m. in the FAZ live ticker for the Tour de France, on Eurosport and on ARD/ed. Red.), there could be larger gaps, so that the leader then only defends and stays on the other wheel.
