In this edition of the Tour de France, there are three big favorites to win the yellow maillot in Paris.
On one side, the two Slovenian Tadej Pogačar and Primož Roglič. The riders were first and second respectively in the last Tour de France 2020.
Tadej Pogačar, UAE Team EMIRATES, is the maximum favorite. He won the 2020 edition and will defend the title at all costs.
Roglič, in the JUMBO-VISMA team, missed out on the title last year, although he won the Vuelta a España in the end. He comes strong and with a very high level.
In third place is the Ecuadorian Richard Carapaz, INEOS team, who has a Giro d’Italia to his name. He was a tough rival for Roglič in the last Vuelta a España. Carapaz is co-leader of the INEOS Grenadiers. This is the team that has been dominating the Tour de France in the past decade.
