After many months of waiting it it finally here. The 100 TV Tour de France or Le Tour has its grand depart today in Corsica. We will, over the next three weeks, get to see who can battle the course to be champion in Paris. We know it won’t be easy and Froome will be up there with Contador plus a few others for the fight for the title.
That battle for yellow overall won’t be won today. That will be for the sprinters. Let’s hope Mark Cavendish it’s the best in the bunch sprint and gets to wear yellow for a day at least, before focusing for the green points jersey.
Like many others who will be watching this years tour offers something different from the last two. Yes we have a clear favourite, plus he is in the form of his life, but there are so many other contentious out there.
Let’s see what happens over the next three weeks. Enjoy.
