How The Tour de France Works

The tour de france: infographic.

Tour de France explained inforgraphic guide

What is the Tour de France

  • The Tour de France is the world's most prestigious bike race which has been running for over 100 years. 
  • The Tour takes riders all across France, through the Alps and the Pyranees, and finishes in Paris. 
  • This year it will take place: July 1 - July 23, 2023
  • The total race distance this year: 3,404 Km / 2,115 Mi 
  • The Grand Départ - The Tour de France often starts somewhere outside of France so other cities and countries can experience the excitement of the Tour. This year, the Tour will start in Bilbao, Spain. 

Key Details 

  • 22 pro cycling teams will compete with 8 riders each ( 176 riders total )
  • The race is split into 21 stages
  • Riders race 1 stage per day
  • Each stage has a stage winner. Winning a single stage at the Tour is a big deal. 
  • On average, racers will ride over 100 miles per stage .
  • Riders will get 2 rest days , one after the first week, and another after the second week.  
  • The overall winner of the Tour de France is the rider with the fastest time after all 21 stages . 

How To Win The Tour de France - Yellow Jersey

The Tour de France's yellow jersey

The winner of the Tour de France is the rider who has the fastest time after all 21 stages. Every stage is timed from start to finish, and every second counts toward the race's General Classification (GC). Every day, the current leader of the race will wear the yellow jersey so they are easy to spot. The rider wearing the yellow jersey when the race reaches the last stage Paris is the winner . 

Riders to watch:  2022 winner Jonas Vingegaard, 2020 & 2021 winner Tadej Pogačar, David Gaudu, Romain Bardet.


Other Ways to "Win" at the Tour de France

The Yellow Jersey is the biggest prize, but there are multiple secondary prizes on offer too. Some teams and riders don’t even bother racing for the yellow jersey and instead focus on these prizes . 

Just like the yellow jersey, each day, the current leader in each classification wears a special jersey color so they're easy to spot.

Points Classification - Green Jersey

Tour de France sprinter's green jersey

Also known as the sprinter’s jersey , this award goes to the rider who scores the most points throughout the race. Points are earned by finishing in the top-15 in a stage.

This classification favors “pure” sprinters (riders who don't compete on mountain stages), and more points are offered for winning flat stages. Riders can also earn points in mid-stage sprints that are usually stationed in towns to please the fans.

Riders to watch:  Wout van Aert, Fabio Jakobsen, Jasper Philipsen, Mads Pedersen, and Dylan Groenewegen.

King Of The Mountains Classification - Polka-Dot Jersey

Tour de France polka-dot King of the Mountains jersey

The Tour gives the polka-dot “ King of the Mountains ” jersey to the rider who collects the most points over the course of the race by reaching the summit of categorized climbs first.

The climb categorization system is opaque and subjective. What you need to know is that there are five climb categories. From easiest to hardest they are: category 4,  category 3,  category 2,  category 1, and hors category (HC - French for “beyond categorization”). Riders get more points on harder climbs. Riders also get more points on mountaintop stage finishes, especially if they win.

Riders to watch:  This one is tough to call until you reach the high mountains. Often anyone who’s in contention for the yellow jersey is a good bet.

Other Prizes

Tour de France best young rider jersey, team classification, and combativity award

Best Young Rider Classification - White Jersey

This classification works the same way as the yellow jersey but is awarded to the highest-placed rider under 26 years of age. On rare occasions, a phenomenal young rider will win both the yellow and white jerseys. 

Riders to watch: Tadej Pogačar, Jonas Vingegaard.

Best Team Classification - Yellow Helmets

Like the yellow or white jerseys, this award is given based on overall time in the race and the team with the lowest overall time wins this prize . Each team tabulates the finish times of its three best riders on every stage. The team leading this classification usually wears yellow helmets, helping them stand out in the bunch.

Most Aggressive Rider - Red Number

Also known as the Combativity Award , this is likely the most mysterious prize in the Tour. In every stage (except time trials), a jury decides which rider in the race was most aggressive — usually, that means attacking a lot or gambling on a breakaway. Late in the broadcast, the announcers usually note which rider was given the combativity prize. If you spot a rider with a red number on their jersey, then he was named most aggressive the stage prior. At the end of the Tour, one rider gets the Super Combativity award.

How Cycling Is Actually a Team Sport... Sort Of

Teamwork in the Tour de France

Why are there teams if only one rider can win the Tour de France? Professional road cycling has a curious tension between the team and the individual. The key thing to remember is this: If a cyclist wins a stage or holds one of the leader’s jersey for a single stage, it is viewed as a team success . 

So if only one rider “wins,” what do the other seven riders on the team do to contribute to this elusive concept of teamwork? Here are some ways a group of individual cyclists comes together as a team to support their leader:

  • Getting into breakaways (small groups that attack off the front of the main group) — that way his team doesn’t have to work to chase the breakaway down.
  • Chasing down breakaways — to give the leader a chance to win or place well.
  • Retrieving food and water for the leader or other key riders — bottle service on the road … what could be more luxurious!
  • Pacing the leader up key climbs — although drafting isn’t as crucial, it can be a psychological advantage to have a teammate at your side.
  • Pacing the leader back to the peloton in the event of a crash, mechanical, or split in the group — without teammates to draft, it might be nearly impossible to rejoin the peloton on some fast-paced stages.
  • Giving the leader their bike or a wheel in the event of a mechanical — this can often be quicker than waiting for a team car or neutral support to show up with a spare.

What Types of Riders Make Up a Team? 

GC (general classification) riders - These are the riders vying for the Tour de France overall win. They need to be solid all-rounders who are good climbers and time trialists. They are usually the team leader and the rest of the team works to support them. 

Sprinters - Sprinters don’t contend for the overall win, and are more interested in winning individual stages. They often wait to attack at intermediate sprints and the finish line of each stage. Some teams are built entirely around a sprinter and focus on winning stages or the green jersey. 

Climbers - Climbing specialists excel at going uphill. Climbers compete for stage wins on the tough mountain stages or work to support their GC leader in the mountains. 

Domestiques - Most riders on the team will work as “domestiques” to support their team leader. They allow their leader to draft behind them to conserve energy, pace them up climbs, carry food and water, and provide support in case of crashes or mechanicals. 

Time Trialists - Some riders specialize in time trialing. They can compete for wins on time trial stages or work as powerful domestiques on flat and hilly stages  

What Types of Stages Are in the Tour?

The Tour de France route is different every year. Each stage is unique and offers different challenges to the riders. Here are the types of stages riders will contend with over three weeks:

Flat Stages - Flat stages are the ideal hunting ground for sprinters. Teams with sprinters will often work to keep the peloton together on flat stages, to ensure it ends in a bunch sprint where their sprinter has the best chance of winning. 

Hilly Stages - Hilly stages mix it up with rolling hills that make it more difficult for the peloton to stay together. These types of stages can be won by sprinters, climbers, or breakaway specialists. 

Mountain Stages - This is often where the Tour de France is won and lost. Mountain stages climb up into the high mountains in the Alps and the Pyrenees and it's where GC contenders will fight to gain time on their rivals.  

Time Trials - The Tour de France always features at least a couple of time trial stages. Riders set off individually to set the fastest time on a set course. With no riders to draft, it’s less about race tactics and more about pure speed and power.

Strategies and tactics

Tour de France strategy and tactics

So we just covered some team dynamics, rider types, and stage types. How does it all fit together? Teams often settle on strategies prior to the race. They assess their strengths and weaknesses and find ways to succeed — whether that means winning the yellow jersey or simply wearing a King of the Mountains jersey for just one stage. Here are some examples of how teams might set their strategies, and how they might execute them with the right tactics:

Team with a top GC rider: Naturally, they’ll try to win the yellow jersey. This means surviving inconsequential flat and rolling stages to conserve energy for key mountain stages and individual time trials. The leader’s teammates will try to get into breakaways so that their team won’t spend energy chasing all day. They’ll also set up the team leader to attack on key climbs or at least follow his rivals to defend his position.

Team with top sprinter: To win the green jersey, they’ll target the flat stages. This means controlling the peloton and chasing down breakaways to set up a sprint finish. Like the GC team, they might also put a rider in the breakaway to ease the burden on the team, forcing rival sprint teams to chase. On mountain stages, the team might have to call riders back from the peloton to help pace their sprinter to the finish so he doesn’t get time-cut.

Team with top climber: Winning the King of the Mountains (KOM) classification is often less of an obvious team effort. These pretenders to the throne tend to be opportunistic. However, it is advantageous to have a teammate in the breakaway on a key mountain stage when points are up for grabs. Also, when defending the polka-dot jersey, teammates can contest the climbs and finish ahead of KOM rivals to spoil their attempt to take over the classification lead by scoring points.

Smaller team without top leader: These are the teams that always try to put a rider in the day’s breakaway. This could earn them the Combativity Prize, or if they play their cards right, a stint in a leader’s jersey or even a stage win. This strategy requires constant attacking in the early kilometers of the race — something most fans rarely see on the broadcast. It is a hectic, painful part of the stage, but it’s crucial in establishing a break. Meanwhile, a breakaway rider’s teammates might patrol the front of the peloton to disrupt the chase.

Three Tips To Watch Like A Pro

Watching the Tour de France as a fan

Now that you understand the basics of how the Tour de France is raced, what do you, the new cycling fan do? There are daily stages for three weeks. That’s a lot of cycling!

Even if you don't have a way to watch the TV broadcast, it's easy to find highlights and extended highlights on YouTube. Fortunately, you don’t have to put your life on hold to watch the Tour de France. There are some reliably important stages you can focus on to catch the key action.

Can’t watch daily? Pick the key mountain stages. There are usually about 5-8 key mountain stages when the overall race is won and lost. Most of them are summit finishes, and they’re split between France’s two key mountain ranges: the Alps and Pyrenees. The first few ordinarily come in stages 6-9 before the first rest day, and the second round is often scheduled for the final week of racing. Occasionally, another summit finish, such as Mont Ventoux in Provence, will be on the list of important stages.

Watching daily? Tune in when things really heat up. On most flat stages, you can wait until the final 20 kilometers to tune in and see the sprinters fight it out. Some rolling stages might be entertaining in the final 50-60 kilometers if late breakaways occur. On mountain stages, it’s best to start watching as early as possible because sometimes, crazy things happen on the day’s first climbs.

Watching a LOT of TDF? Look for the nuances. If you’re going to have the race on all day, every day, you’ll need to dig a little deeper to enjoy the subtleties of the race. Try keeping track of riders who are often making the breakaway. Watch the sprint teams work together — or not — to chase an escape. Who looks to have strength in numbers, and who is not present at the front of the race? Are the GC riders staying out of trouble or tail-gunning at the dangerous back of the peloton? Usually, at any given time in the race, any given rider is positioned where they are for a specific reason. Look for clues to sort out what is happening.

Team Jumbo-Visma at the 2022 Tour de France

The Tour de France is the crown jewel of cycling’s Grand Tours. It pits riders against some of the most difficult terrain on the planet, offering only a couple of days spread throughout the race for riders to rest their utterly exhausted bodies.

Even achieving the honor of riding on a 2023 Tour de France team is a lifelong dream for many cyclists, and only those at the top of the sport — and in the right place at the right time — get the opportunity.

The field of nearly 200 racers is composed of 22 teams that gain entry into the race either by right as a Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) WorldTeams-licensed team, by qualification through the UCI ProTeam season, or through a special invitation from the organizers of the race, Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO).

No individual cyclists can enter the race, and even if they did, they’d have no chance of winning or even doing well. With that in mind, it’s important for world-class riders who hope to compete in the 2023 Tour de France to have earned a spot on a team that has a good chance to participate.

Here is a rundown of how teams qualify for the 2023 Tour de France.

UCI WorldTeams

The Quick-Step-Alpha Vinyl and Alpecin Deceuninck teams battling to keep their sprinter in the proper position in the 2022 Tour de France

The most clearcut way to ensure a spot in the Tour de France is to rank among the 18 current UCI WorldTeams. The vast majority of teams in the Tour de France and other UCI WorldTour events come from this category.

For 2023, those teams include:

  • AG2R Citroën Team (FRA)
  • Alpecin Deceuninck (BEL)
  • Astana Qazaqstan Team (KAZ)
  • Bora-Hansgrohe (GER)
  • EF Education-Easypost (USA)
  • Groupama-FDJ (FRA)
  • Ineos Grenadiers (GBR)
  • Intermarché-Circus-Wanty (BEL)
  • Jumbo-Visma (NED)
  • Movistar Team (ESP)
  • Soudal Quick-Step (BEL)
  • Team Arkea-Samsic (FRA)
  • Team Bahrain Victorious (BRN)
  • Team Cofidis (FRA)
  • Team DSM (NED)
  • Team Jayco AlUla (AUS)
  • Trek-Segafredo (USA)
  • UAE Team Emirates (UAE)

These teams represent the cream of the crop in global cycling; they all feature superstars, national champions in various disciplines, and a host of extremely strong riders who can work together to help their teammates win the race.

UCI rules only allow 18 teams to compete in the WorldTeams category, which is the highest category in professional cycling. Teams earn a spot in the WorldTeams field by collecting points in pro races throughout 3 years of racing.

Different types of races come with different point values, and the top 10 riders for each team, and the top eight for women’s teams , have the opportunity to compete in races to bolster overall team stats to get more points. At the end of the years-long cycle of racing, the UCI tallies points and awards WorldTeams licenses for those at the top.

The teams listed above earned their spots in the WorldTeams category in December 2022, so they can rest somewhat easy knowing they all have an assured spot in the Tour de France through 2025.

Team SD Works, at 2023 Tour de France Femmes team

The Tour de France Femmes uses the same format for its selection. All 15 of the women’s WorldTeams groups are automatically in the race .

The 2023 selection includes:

  • Canyon / / SRAM Racing (GER) 
  • EF Education-Tibco-SVB (USA) 
  • FDJ-Suez (FRA)
  • Fenix Deceuninck (BEL)
  • Human Powered Health (USA)
  • Israel Premier Tech Roland (SUI) 
  • Liv Racing Teqfind (NED) 
  • Movistar Team Women (ESP) 
  • Team DSM (NED) 
  • Team Jayco Alula (AUS)
  • Jumbo-Visma (NED) 
  • Team SD Worx (NED)
  • Trek-Segafredo (USA) 
  • UAE Team ADQ (UAE) 
  • Uno-X Pro Cycling Team (NOR)

For those who do not make the cut, all is not lost.

UCI ProTeams in the Tour de France

The second-highest category in cycling is the ProTeams category. As a complement to the 18 WorldTeams in the 2023 Tour de France, the race also offers spots to four ProTeams.

Those teams include:

  • Lotto Dstny (BEL)
  • TotalEnergies (FRA)
  • Israel-Premier Tech (ISR)

The pathway for these teams to earn a spot in the 2023 Tour de France is not as clear cut. Lotto Dstny earned a spot in all WorldTour races, including the Tour de France, by finishing the latest season with the highest number of points among the ProTeams field, as did TotalEnergies.

Israel-Premier Tech and Uno-X Pro Cycling Team received invitations to compete from race organizer Amaury Sport Organization.

The 2023 Tour de France Femmes offers a few more spots for teams on the bubble.

The two top teams in the UCI Continental ranking in 2022 qualified for the race by right. These include:

  • Ceratizit-WNT Pro Cycling Team (BEL)
  • Lifeplus Wahoo (GBR)

Five additional teams earned invitations from the race organizers, including:

  • AG Insurance – Soudal Quick-Step Team (BEL)
  • Arkéa-Samsic Pro Cycling Team (FRA)
  • Cofidis Women’s Team (FRA)
  • St Michel Mavic-Auber93 (FRA)
  • Team Coop-Hitec Products (NOR)

For these organizations, being a 2023 Tour de France team offers one of the biggest chances to rack up points that could lead to them promoting back into the WorldTeams category.

This year’s race takes on a particular bit of importance on the women’s side, as these teams will undergo the same selection process that solidified WorldTeams licenses for the men in 2022. For many teams, a strong performance in 2023 could mean the difference between remaining in the WorldTeams category or relegation.

Because only WorldTeam and ProTeam licensees are allowed to compete in World Tour Races, ending up in one of these places is the only way into the 2023 Tour de France. Everyone else will have to settle for spectating, which may be a lot more fun anyway.

A stage-by-stage look at the 2023 Tour de France route with profiles, previews and estimated start and finish times (all times Eastern) ...

Stage 1/July 1: Bilbao-Bilbao (113 miles) Hilly Neutralized Start: 6:30 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:15 a.m. Quick Preview: The Grant Départ is held in the Basque Country as the Tour’s first three stages start in Spain. There are five categorized climbs, though none of the highest difficulty, with 21 King of the Mountain points available and 50 green jersey points. An uphill finish could neutralize the top sprinters.


TOUR DE FRANCE: Broadcast Schedule

Stage 2/July 2: Vitoria-Gasteiz-San Sebastián (130 miles) Hilly Neutralized Start: 6:15 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:04 a.m. Quick Preview: Five more climbs with the toughest coming near the end of the longest stage of the Tour. If no breakaways are successful, the sprinters will be rewarded with a flat finish.


Stage 3/July 3: Amorebieta-Etxano-Bayonne (120 miles) Flat Neutralized Start: 7 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:27 a.m. Quick Preview: The first flat stage brings the Tour into France along the Bay of Biscay coastline. Could be Mark Cavendish’s first prime opportunity to break the Tour stage wins record he shares with Eddy Merckx.


Stage 4/July 4: Dax-Nogaro (114 miles) Flat Neutralized Start: 7:10 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:12 a.m. Quick Preview: Another flat stage, this one finishing at France’s first purpose-built motor racing venue, the Circuit Paul Armagnac, with the final 1.9 miles taking place on the track.


Stage 5/July 5: Pau-Laruns (103 miles) Mountain Neutralized Start: 7:05 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:21 a.m. Quick Preview: The first of eight mountain stages that will collectively visit France’s five biggest mountain ranges. This one is in the Pyrenees with three summits in the second half of the day followed by a flat run-in to the finish. Expect the overall standings to shake up.


Stage 6/July 6: Tarbes-Cauterets (90 miles) Mountain Neutralized Start: 7:10 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:08 a.m. Quick Preview: The first of four summit finishes of this year’s Tour. Summit finishes are usually where the real yellow jersey contenders separate from the pack. Could be the first duel between 2022 Tour winner Jonas Vingegaard and 2020 and 2021 Tour winner Tadej Pogacar.


Stage 7/July 7: Mont-de-Marsan-Bordeaux (110 miles) Flat Neutralized Start: 7:15 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:07 a.m. Quick Preview: Flattest stage of the Tour with a single fourth-category climb. Cavendish won the last time a Tour stage finished in Bordeaux in 2010.


Stage 8/July 8: Libourne-Limoges (125 miles) Hilly Neutralized Start: 6:30 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:07 a.m. Quick Preview: A transition day as the Tour heads to the Massif Central. A 5% uphill in the last 700 meters might mean this is not a sprinters’ day.


Stage 9/July 9: Saint-Léonard-de-Noblat-Puy de Dôme (114 miles) Mountain Neutralized Start: 7:30 a.m. Estimated Finish: 12:05 p.m. Quick Preview: A summit finish -- to a dormant volcano -- before a rest day is sure to shake up the overall standings. Puy de Dôme returns to the Tour after a 35-year absence.


Stage 10/July 11: Vulcania-Issoire (104 miles) Hilly Neutralized Start: 7:05 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:19 a.m. Quick Preview: The hilliest day of the Tour. Begins at a volcano-themed amusement park.


Stage 11/July 12: Clermont-Ferrand-Moulins (110 miles) Flat Neutralized Start: 7:05 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:19 a.m. Quick Preview: The last flat stage until the 19th stage. If Cavendish hasn’t gotten a stage win yet, the pressure will start to mount.


Stage 12/July 13: Roanne-Belleville-en-Beaujolais (103 miles) Hilly Neutralized Start: 7:05 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:21 a.m. Quick Preview: Even with three late climbs, don’t expect a yellow jersey battle with back-to-back-to-back mountain stages after this.


Stage 13/July 14: Châtillon-sur-Chalaronne-Grand Colombier (86 miles) Mountain Neutralized Start: 7:45 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:12 a.m. Quick Preview: On Bastille Day, the second and final beyond-category summit finish of this year’s Tour. The French have incentive to break away on their national holiday, but this is a climb for the yellow jersey contenders. A young Pogacar won here in 2020.


Stage 14/July 15: Annemasse-Morzine (94 miles) Mountain Neutralized Start: 7:05 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:18 a.m. Quick Preview: Another selective day in the Alps, with each climb seemingly tougher than the last. The downhill into the finish could neutralize attacks from the last ascent.


Stage 15/July 16: Les Gets-Saint-Gervais-les-Bains (110 miles) Mountain Neutralized Start: 7:05 a.m. Estimated Finish: 12 p.m. Quick Preview: The last of three consecutive mountain stages features the last summit finish of the Tour. The eventual Tour winner could emerge here given the next stage’s time trial is only 14 miles.


Stage 16/July 18: Passy-Combloux (14 miles) Individual Time Trial First Start: 7:05 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:36 a.m. Quick Preview: After a rest day, the Tour’s lone, short time trial will be punctuated by a late climb. Only twice in the last 50 years has there been just one time trial (including team time trials and prologues).


Stage 17/July 19: Saint-Gervais-les-Bains-Courchevel (103 miles) Mountain Neutralized Start: 6:20 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:03 a.m. Quick Preview: The first of two mountain stages in the last week of the Tour. It’s the most difficult of the eight total mountain stages with more than 5,000 meters (3.1 miles) of elevation gain, capped by the beyond category Col de la Loze just before the descent to the finish.


Stage 18/July 20: Moûtiers-Bourg-en-Bresse (116 miles) Hilly Neutralized Start: 7:05 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:31 a.m. Quick Preview: About as flat of a “hilly” stage as one gets. Should still be a day for the sprinters who made it through the mountains.


Stage 19/July 21: Moirans-en-Montagne-Poligny (107 miles) Flat Neutralized Start: 7:15 a.m. Estimated Finish: 11:11 a.m. Quick Preview: An undulating stage with a relieving descent toward the end. The last kilometer goes up a 2.6% incline, which could take the sting out of some sprinters.


Stage 20/July 22: Belfort-Le Markstein (83 miles) Mountain Neutralized Start: 7:30 a.m. Estimated Finish: 10:54 a.m. Quick Preview: The last competitive day for the yellow jersey is highlighted by two late category-one climbs that could determine the overall champion should it be close going into the day.


Stage 21/July 23: Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines-Paris (71 miles) Flat Neutralized Start: 10:30 a.m. Estimated Finish: 1:28 p.m. Quick Preview: The ceremonial ride into Paris, almost always a day for the sprinters. Should be the final Tour stage for Cavendish and Peter Sagan, who both plan to retire from road cycling after this season.


Tour de France 2023 – Analysing the contenders

The final form ranking for the yellow jersey contenders

Jonas Vingegaard Tadej Pogacar Tour de France

Most of the hard work has been done and there is precious little time to conjure up form, condition or confidence for the 2023 Tour de France favourites. The big race, starting in Bilbao on July 1, is almost here.

That means it’s final tune-up time: the Critérium du Dauphiné and Tour de Suisse have given us the final display of form for the WorldTour’s best, with only their final preparations separating them from La Grande Boucle.

As ever, Cyclingnews has its form ranking for the favourites, with regular updates through the season and into the Tour itself.

We rank the Tour de France contenders by their performances and as the months have now trickled down to scant days before the Grand Départ in Bilbao, it's time to run the rule over the contenders for the maillot jaune for a final time.

1. Tadej Pogačar

  • Team: UAE Team Emirates
  • Tour experience: Winner in 2020 and 2021, runner-up in 2022
  • 2023 results: 1st at Jaén Paraíso Interior, 1st with three stage wins at Ruta del Sol, 1st with three stage wins at Paris-Nice, 4th at Milan-San Remo, 3rd at E3 Classic, 1st at Tour of Flanders, 1st at Amstel Gold Race, 1st at La Flèche Wallonne, DNF at Liège-Bastogne-Liège, 1st at Slovenian Nationals Time Trial, 1st at Slovenian Nationals Road Race 

Tadej Pogacar is a major favorite for the Tour de France after an exceptional 2023 season

It was a spring campaign for the ages from the voracious and versatile Pogačar. However, it ended unceremoniously when a fractured wrist at Liège-Bastogne-Liège led to several weeks off the bike, though he was soon putting in long indoor training sessions to compensate.

In late May, he went out to Sierra Nevada (later than his teammates) to do more preparation. He then headed to Sestriere for a final bit of training and recon in the rarefied air.

It remains to be seen whether the injury affects him or if his glorious, tiring spring has any impact but Pogačar indicated that he’s not worried in his latest interview with Cyclingnews . The only races on his schedule between Liège and the Grand Départ were the Slovenian national time trial and road race, both of which he won hands down, which hardly augers badly.

Pogačar will have to be at his best to beat Vingegaard, but revenge has likely been on his mind ever since the finale of last year’s race. You’d be a fool to write him off.

=1. Jonas Vingegaard

  • Team: Jumbo-Visma
  • Tour experience: Winner in 2022, runner-up in 2021
  • 2023 results: 1st with three stage wins at O Gran Camiño, 3rd at Paris-Nice, 1st with three stage wins at Itzulia Basque Country, 1st with two stage wins at Critérium du Dauphiné

Jonas Vingegaard

With Pogačar out of racing sight and more out of mind for much of the build-up to the Tour, Jonas Vingegaard was the focal point for rivals and observers alike with his strength and ease. They’re so closely-matched, we’ve put the pair in equal first.

After a three-week altitude camp at Sierra Nevada, he passed his last test at the Critérium du Dauphiné with flying colours, winning a brace of stages and the overall, with the biggest winning margin since Charly Mottet in 1987. As if that wasn’t enough, after the race the defending champion indicated he can still improve.

Back in March, Pogačar got the better of Vingegaard at Paris-Nice . Both he and Pogačar have similar remarkable win rates this year but of course the Tour de France is the one that counts above all others. The form book and results suggest it’ll be their duel for glory. All roads lead to Bilbao and a renewal of hostilities between the two titans of the 2022 edition.

3. Jai Hindley

  • Team: Bora-Hansgrohe
  • Tour experience: none
  • 2023 results: 16th at Tour Down Under, 32nd at Cadel Evans Race, 13th at Volta ao Algarve, 32nd at Ardèche Classic, 53rd at Drôme Classic, 15th at Tirreno-Adriatico, 8th at Volta a Catalunya, 12th at Amstel Gold Race, 83rd at Liège-Bastogne-Liège, 4th at Critérium du Dauphiné

Jai Hindley in action at the Dauphine, with a performance that positioned him as a contender for the Tour

Hindley’s season has shifted up a gear at the perfect time. Following finishes on the fringes at Catalunya and the Amstel Gold Race, he was among the strongest at the Critérium du Dauphiné .

Consistency on the climbs at this mini Tour de France was complemented by one of the best time trial rides of his career, laying the foundations for fourth overall.

With Vingegaard and Pogačar looking like a cut above the rest, it is likely to be a fierce scrap for the third step of the podium. Tour debutant Hindley will have to get through the hubbub of the first week unscathed, but the 2022 Giro d’Italia winner appears to be in pole position to be the best of the rest.

4. Mikel Landa

  • Team: Bahrain-Victorious
  • Tour experience: Five appearances, 4th in 2017 and 2020
  • 2023 results: 7th at Volta Valenciana, 2nd at Ruta del Sol, 7th at Tirreno-Adriatico, 5th at Volta a Catalunya, 2nd at Itzulia Basque Country, 3rd at Flèche Wallonne, DNF at Liège-Bastogne-Liège, 22nd at Critérium du Dauphiné

Mikel Landa

We’ve been accustomed to Landa lighting up spring stage races, showing his face at Tirreno-Adriatico , the Volta a Catalunya and Itzulia. His steady run of stage race contention, however, came to an end at the Dauphiné with a particularly poor showing in the time trial. The experienced Basque knows what he’s doing and acknowledged he wasn’t in the best shape before the race. Not ideal, but he’s still on course for a high finish at a TT-light Tour de France.

5. David Gaudu

  • Team: Groupama-FDJ
  • Tour experience: Five appearances, 4th overall in 2022
  • 2023 results: 7th at Tour du Var, 2nd at Ardèche Classic, 4th at Drôme Classic, 2nd at Paris-Nice, 4th at Itzulia Basque Country, DNF at Amstel, Flèche and Liège, 30th at Critérium du Dauphiné

David Gaudu was subdued at the Dauphine, but is still a contender for the Tour de France

Gaudu was off the pace at the Critérium du Dauphiné in the mountains and against the clock. To boot, he copped social media abuse after a few stages. There’s no cause for panic after one poor performance for France’s big hope.

His spring campaign was strong, finishing next best to Tadej Pogačar at Paris-Nice. It also bears remembering that, though he won a stage, Gaudu wasn’t in the frame at last year’s Dauphiné GC either, and that preceded a career-best result.

6. Enric Mas (crashed out on stage 1)

  • Team: Movistar
  • Tour experience: Four appearances, 5th in 2020, 6th in 2021
  • 2023 results: 5th at Ruta del Sol, 6th at Tirreno-Adriatico, 5th at Itzulia Basque Country, 17th at La Flèche Wallonne, DNF at Liège-Bastogne-Liège, 17th at Critérium du Dauphiné

Enric Mas

Mas looked like every bit like a Tour de France podium contender eight months ago. He matched his second places in the Vuelta and Il Lombardia with a fan-pleasing, attacking style.

Still, there was little of that on display at the Critérium du Dauphiné. Dropping three minutes to winner Mikkel Bjerg in the time trial was no big surprise; of greater concern was losing nearly that same amount to a flying Vingegaard on the race’s queen stage.

There’s clearly a bit of work to be done to make sure it’s a case of más rather than menos at the Tour de France. Mas wanted to put his COVID-19 abandon of last year’s race well behind him but crashed on stage 1 of the 2023 Tour and was forced out of the race again .

7. Romain Bardet

  • Tour experience: Nine appearances, 2nd overall in 2016, 3rd in 2017
  •  2023 results: 8th at Tour du Var, 11th at Ardèche Classic, 11th at Drôme Classic, 7th at Paris-Nice, DNF at Volta a Catalunya, 9th at La Flèche Wallonne, 15th at Liège-Bastogne-Liège, 7th at Tour de Romandie

PORTVALAIS SWITZERLAND APRIL 25 Romain Bardet of France and Team DSM sprints during the 76th Tour De Romandie 2023 Prologue a 682km stage from PortValais to PortValais UCIWT on April 25 2023 in PortValais Switzerland Photo by Dario BelingheriGetty Images

Bardet is Mr. Steady of the stage races, rarely terrible or incandescent. The experienced Frenchman sat fourth overall at the Tour de France last summer until an off-day in the blazing sun to Foix put paid to his podium hopes.

COVID-19 in April didn’t seem to slow him down at the Tour de Romandie , where he was seventh. A fifth place at the Tour de Suisse suggests altitude has honed his condition, and he enters the race as a valuable GC contender for DSM.

8. Ben O'Connor

  • Team: AG2R Citroën Team
  • Tour experience: Two appearances, 4th and a stage in 2021
  • 2023 results: 6th Tour Down Under, 46th Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race, 13th Tirreno-Adriatico, 14th Volta a Catalunya, 11th Classic Grand Besançon Doubs, 5th Tour du Jura, 50th Liège-Bastogne-Liège, 3rd Critérium du Dauphiné

Ben O'Connor

The Australian climbs into our top ten after his third place finish at the Critérium du Dauphiné, repeating his result from twelve months ago. Coming off an altitude camp, O’Connor was the surprise factor in the time trial, delivering AG2R-Citroën’s first-ever top-five performance in a WorldTour race against the clock.

Last year’s Tour was a bust for O’Connor , dropped on the cobbled stage and abandoning with a torn glute. The first week, with its hillier Basque Country start, may well suit the rider from Perth better as he hopes to improve on his landmark 2021 showing.

9.   Giulio Ciccone

  • Team: Trek-Segafredo
  • Tour experience: Two appearances, wore the yellow jersey in 2019
  • 2023 results: 2nd and stage win at Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, 5th at Tirreno-Adriatico, 7th and stage win at Volta a Catalunya, 5th at Flèche Wallonne, 13th Liège-Bastogne-Liège, 11th and stage win at Critérium du Dauphiné

Giulio Ciccone

After storming the Bastille in Grenoble for triumph on the last day of the Dauphiné, the little Italian surges into our top ten. Ciccone has talked of going for a Tour de France stage victory and the King of the Mountains this summer. Consistency has been his big problem in Grand Tours.

It could be different this summer. Ciccone has had three victories and barely been out of the top 10 in 2023, in spite of COVID-19 dumping him out of a Giro d’Italia team he was due to lead.

His self-belief will be sky high and he’ll be in a positive frame of mind, getting married weeks before the race. With few time trial kilometres in the 2023 race, a top-10 finish is within his reach.

10. Dani Martínez

  • Team: Ineos Grenadiers
  • Tour experience: Three appearances, stage win and 28th in 2020
  • 2023 results: 25th at Vuelta a San Juan, 1st at Volta ao Algarve, 25th at Paris-Nice, 34th at Itzulia Basque Country, 23rd at Critérium du Dauphiné

LAGOAPRAIA DO CARVOEIRO ALGARVE PORTUGAL FEBRUARY 19 Daniel Martinez of Colombia and Team INEOS Grenadiers celebrates at podium as Yellow Leader Jersey winner during the 49th Volta ao Algarve em Bicicleta 2023 Stage 5 a 244km individual time trial stage from Lagoa to Lagoa VAlgarve2023 on February 19 2023 in Lagoa Algarve Portugal Photo by Tim de WaeleGetty Images

With the Tour on the horizon, there is no clear leader for Ineos Grenadiers.

Dani Martínez has been targeting that spot since the start of the season, but the last day of the Critérium du Dauphiné likely knocked the Colombian’s confidence. He was the race’s big loser, losing 10 minutes and tumbling down the GC from sixth overall.

A simple jour sans or indicative of a bigger problem? The Colombian was flying on the way to first place at February’s Volta ao Algarve but hasn’t broken the top 10 on GC since.  Martínez has had a poor start to the Tour, losing 3:13 on stage 1 and a further 7:00 on stage 2 to fall out of overall contention.

Third with Geraint Thomas last year, Ineos Grenadiers are at risk of having their most peripheral Grande Boucle in years. But the kids could step up. Tom Pidcock , who finished a disappointing 22nd at the Tour de Suisse, showed his off-road form in recent weeks, winning in Nove Mesto. In an interview with Cyclingnews the Briton laid out his stage goals but was reticent to see himself as a GC contender just yet.

Former Spanish national champion Carlos Rodríguez’s ninth overall in the Alps eclipsed Martínez’s performance. Rodríguez was the silver lining on a poor opening stage for the British team and was the only Ineos rider in the top 10 after the brutal Grand Depart in the Basque Country.

Bubbling under

Egan Bernal is one of the great question marks of the 2023 season

Put out a search party for Simon Yates. The Jayco-Alula man has not raced since stomach problems forced him to abandon the Tour de Romandie on stage 2. This summer, less is evidently more for the Briton. He is set to go straight from training at altitude to the Grand Départ. He was second at the Tour Down Under and fourth at Paris-Nice, but his form is unknown.

EF Education-EasyPost leader Richard Carapaz was on the attack at the Critérium du Dauphiné and sprinted to second place behind Julian Alaphilippe. The Olympic champion is flying under the radar a little; he’s not finished in the top 10 in a GC since being runner-up at last year’s Giro d’Italia.

Unfortunately, Carapaz was involved in the same crash that forced Enric Mas out of the Tour, and abandoned before stage 2 with a fractured patella.

Neilson Powless showed his all-round power through Paris-Nice and the spring Classics, and he gives a potential other option for EF.

Louis Meintjes (Intermarché Circus Wanty) showed he’s ticking along nicely, finishing seventh at the Dauphiné. Cofidis captain Guillaume Martin was a few seconds and a place higher. Sergio Higuita could be a backup option for Bora-Hansgrohe. Expect those three to be in the mix come July.

2019 Tour de France champion Egan Bernal also performed well in the Critérium du Dauphiné high mountains to finish twelfth overall. Given his knee problems this year, it’s surely too soon for Tour contention, but with confirmation of his team selection it's clear his recovery from his life-threatening crash appears to be going well.

With his withdrawal from the race with illness, Alexey Lutsenko (Astana Qazaqstan Team) didn't give us a showing of his form at the Tour de Suisse, having finished top 10 in the past two editions, but he did win both the road race and time trial in the Kazakh Nationals. Lutsenko's GC hopes were ruined on stages 1 and 2 where he lost a combined 18 minutes to the leaders and he will likely now chase stage wins.

As for the Giro d’Italia giants?  Remco Evenepoel (Soudal-QuickStep) and Primož Roglič  (Jumbo-Visma)  won’t be at the Tour , which makes sense, but it’s a shame for the fans. The sport’s blue riband event also comes too soon for Tao Geoghegan Hart (Ineos Grenadiers) who crashed out of the Giro d’Italia with a fractured hip.

Five things to know before the 2023 Tour de France

The Tour de France starts in Bilbao on Saturday with two big favourites – defending champion Jonas Vingegaard and two-time winner Tadej Pogacar, runner-up last year. We look at five things to know before the 110th edition of the three-week race.

Issued on: 30/06/2023 - 16:22

25th start outside France

The Tour will kick off outside France for the 25th time. It will the second start from the Spanish Basque Country after San Sebastian in 1992. After two stages entirely in Spain , the peloton heads for Bayonne in France. In 2022, the Grande Boucle started in Copenhagen and in 2024 it gets underway in Florence, Italy . Cities pay dearly for the right to host the Grand Depart, which race organisers ASO insist expands the international influence of one of the biggest sporting events in the world.

A very mountainous route

With nearly 56,000 metres of climbing, a record 30 passes, five French mountain ranges and a single time-trial, this Tour presents a tough profile that favours climbers. After the Pyrenees, the Tour makes an eagerly-awaited return to the Puy de Dome in the Massif Central after 35 years. The race will then climb through the Jura, the Alps , with the main stage to Courchevel via the Col de la Loze (2,304 m), and finally the Vosges, on the eve of the finale in Paris on July 23. 

Pogacar-Vingegaard summit duel

Dane Vingegaard, winner last year after a second place in 2021, and Slovenian Pogacar, the 2020 and 2021 champion, then runner-up in 2022, are the big favourites. Yet Pogacar's form remains unknown after breaking his wrist on April 23 during the Liege-Bastogne-Liege. For Vingegaard, the question first concerns his ability to resist the pressure of defending his title. At least a dozen other riders, including French duo David Gaudu and Romain Bardet, Spaniard Enric Mas and the Australian Ben O'Connor, could fight for podium places. Remco Evenepoel, Primoz Roglic and Geraint Thomas are the main absentees.

Safety in spotlight

The death of the Swiss rider Gino Maeder  mid-June, descending a mountain in the Tour of Switzerland plunged the peloton into disarray and reignited the debate over safety. Accustomed to exceeding 100 km/h downhill, many riders shared their apprehension, while recalling that danger is an integral part of their sport. To limit the risks, organisers have planned measures including the installation of padded parapets on certain turns to prevent riders  falling into the void.

Covid concerns

In most sports, Covid-19 is only a distant memory, but cycling is resigned to another Tour under virus protocols. Organisers want to avoid the problems of this year's Giro d'Italia when Evenepoel withdrew after a positive test while leading. As in the last three Tours, staff, journalists and guests will have to wear masks when in contact with riders who are advised to avoid selfies and autographs.

Tour de France 2023 preview: Full schedule and how to watch live

Another thrilling battle at the 2023 Tour de France is in sight as Tadej Pogacer will try to take back the Tour de France crown that he lost to Jonas Vingegaard last year. Here is all you need to about this year’s race which begins on 1 July in Bilbao, Spain.

Jonas Vingegaard on the podium in Paris at the Tour de France 2022

The Tour de France 2023 has all the makings of another road cycling thriller.

Will the world’s most prestigious race be the third act in the epic battle between defending champion Jonas Vingegaard of Denmark and 2021 champion Tadej Pogacar ?

Soon we will have all the answers with the 110 th edition of the French Grand Tour starting on Saturday (1 July) in Bilbao, the largest city in the Basque Country, Spain.

Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) is hoping to be crowned champion again, after he won last year’s race as just the second Dane in history ahead of Slovenia’s two-time Tour de France winner, Tadej Pogacar

It is the 110 th edition of the French Grand Tour that will feature Tokyo 2020 Olympic champion Richard Carapaz , silver medallist Wout van Aert and bronze medallist Pogacar.

La Grande Boucle will cover 3,404 km over the 21 stages, with the final stage taking place at the Champs-Élysées in Paris on 23 July. There are eight flat stages, four hilly stages, one time trial and eight mountain stages. Four of these have summit finishes, including the stage to the mythical Puy de Dôme.

176 riders will be on the start line at the Guggenheim Museum, one of Bilbao’s major tourist attractions, with eight riders for each of the 22 teams.

Below you will find everything you need to know about this year’s Tour de France.

Tour de france 2023 general classification riders to watch.

In 2022, we witnessed a breathtaking duel between Vingegaard and Pogacar , and they are coming into this year’s race as the two big favourites.

The 26-year-old Dane has participated in four stage races this season, having won three of them in dominant fashion - O Gran Camiño, Itzulia Basque Country, and most recently the Critérium du Dauphiné.

Pogacar and Vingegaard last faced each other at the Paris-Nice in March, where the 24-year-old Slovenian claimed victory ahead of David Gaudu and Vingegaard .

UAE Tean Emirates captain Pogacar has claimed no less than 14 victories this season including Paris-Nice, Tour of Flanders, Amstel Gold Race and La Flèche Wallonne, before he crashed and broke his wrist at the Liège-Bastogne-Liège.

The two-time Il Lombardia winner made his comeback last week, claiming both the Slovenian national time trial and road race championship.

2022 Giro d’Italia winner Jai Hindley is going to be the leader on a strong BORA - Hansgrohe team. At the Critérium du Dauphiné, 27-year-old Hindley finished fourth behind Adam Yates of the UAE Team Emirates and his compatriot Ben O'Connor of AG2R Citroën Team.

With his win at last year’s Giro, the Australian has shown that he has the endurance needed to compete in a three-week Grand Tour.

22-year-old Mattias Skjelmose (Denmark) stunned the world of cycling by winning the Tour de Suisse earlier this month ahead of the likes of Remco Evenepoel and Juan Ayuso .

He continued his impressive run and was crowned Danish road race champion on Sunday (25 June), after a spectacular solo effort in the final kilometres.

The Trek-Segafredo rider has participated in one Grand Tour previously as he rode the Giro d’Italia last year finishing just 40 th . This year’s Tour de France will be a test of his stamina.

And dont count out Enric Mas. The 28-year-old Spaniard has finished second in the general classification at the Vuelta a España three times and is hoping to make the podium at the Tour.

The Movistar rider came in top six overall in three stage races this season.

Other key riders at the Tour de France 2023

Green jersey.

Last year's points competition winner Wout van Aert has already announced that the green jersey will not be a target for him as he aims to win stages and prepare for the UCI Cycling World Championships that takes place just two weeks after the finish in Paris.

That leaves Jasper Philipsen of Alpecin-Deceuninck as the favourite to take the crown. The Belgian clinched two stages last season - including the most prestigious sprint finish on the Champs-Élysées - and he has already six race wins this season. His versatile teammate Mathieu van der Poel seems to be in the shape of his life, and if the Paris-Roubaix winner gets the freedom to chase the green jersey, watch out for the Dutchman.

The biggest threat might come from Soudal-Quick Step that always target stage wins with their sprinter. Fabio Jakobsen will be their trusted sprinter, like last year. The Dutchman is supported by a strong sprint cast with the most experienced lead-out man in the peloton, Michael Mørkøv, to set him up. 

Sprinter’s teams like Team Jayco Alula with Dylan Groenewegen and Lotto Dstny with Caleb Ewan will also chase stage wins and are contenders for the green jersey.

Denmark’s Mads Pedersen and Biniam Girmay of Eritrea are not only great sprinters but also good climbers. That ability can secure points for the green jersey classification on the more hilly stages. Pedersen took his first Tour de France stage win in last year’s edition and claimed the green jersey in the Vuelta a España, but like van Aert he has announced his focus is to arrive in top shape at the UCI Cycling World Championships in Glasgow.

Polka dot jersey

In the last three editions of the Tour de France, the winner of the king of the mountains classification has also been the overall winner of the Tour de France. Therefore, Pogacar and Vingegaard are the top contenders this year.

For the French riders it will be a special achievement to be on the podium in Paris wearing the polka dot jersey. Thibaut Pinot , who was king of the mountains classification at the Giro d’Italia in May is keen on challenging the two top guns as is 2019 polka dot jersey winner Romain Bardet .

Tour de France 2023 route and important stages

The 2023 Tour de France begins with a hilly stage containing some 3,400 metres of climbing. Contenders for the overall win will have to be ready from the start on the hills around Bilbao. The stage suits classics specialist like Mathieu van der Poel , Wout van Aert and Julian Alaphilippe who all want to be the first rider to wear the yellow jersey at this year’s Tour de France.

After another hilly stage in the Basque Country to San Sebastian on stage two, the peloton will cross the French border and resume the race with flat stages on day three and four. 

Stage five will take the peloton on the first mountain stage in the Pyrenees which includes Col du Soudet and Col de Marie Blanque. The following day, the riders will tackle the mythical mountain Col du Tourmalet before finishing the stage on the category 1 climb Cauterets-Cambasque. Week one concludes with an eagerly anticipated summit finish to the volcano Puy de Dôme that returns to the Tour after a 35-year absence.

On stage 13 in week two, the teams face a gruelling finish to Col du Grand Colombier in the Jura mountains. The two following days will also test the riders’ climbing skills with stage 15 featuring a summit finish to Saint-Gervais Mont-Blanc in the Alps to end week two.

The final week kicks off with stage 16, the only individual time trial in the race. It is just 22 kilometres long but contains a fair amount of climbing, especially in the second part of the route. After the time trial, the queen stage of the Tour de France with more than 5000 metres of climbing is sure to generate plenty of drama. Colo de la Loze, the highest point of the race at 2304m, is the biggest obstacle on this stage being 28 kilometres long, with an average gradient of six percent.

Two flatter stages follow ahead of a short but mountainous penultimate stage in the Vosges on stage 20. It will be the last chance for the general classification contenders to gain time before the celebrations in Paris.

Roland-Garros : «disputer les JO de Paris serait un gros bonus», confie l’espoir Arthur Cazaux

  • Copier le lien Lien copié

De retour de blessure, le 8e de finaliste de l’Open d’Australie revient aux affaires avec de gros objectifs.

Très sérieusement a blessé à la cheville en avril dernier , le Montpelliérain est engagé dans une course contre la montre pour pouvoir s'aligner et être compétitif pour Roland Garros. Mission accomplie : « Je suis passé par plein d’émotions avec l’enchaînement des pépins (malaise, plus blessure). J’ai peu joué les deux derniers mois et demi, mais c’est le sport. c'est tomme la vie il y a des hauts et des bas. Je vais rebondir. Je me sens bien physiquement. Je m’entraîne bien. Ce Roland-Garros va être un test. Il n’y a pas de risques d’aggraver ma blessure même si je joue avec des chevillères. De toute façon, je vais me pointer sur le court le couteau entre les dents. J’ai envie d’aller le plus loin possible et peu importe mon état physique. »

Le Montpelliérain affrontera au premier tour l'argentin Etcheverry, tête de série 26. Les deux joueurs se sont déjà affrontés sur terre battue la saison dernière au challenger de Bordeaux et le Sud Américain l'avait emporté. Cazaux va tenter de prendre sa revanche. Il veut se servir de son expérience de l’Open d’Australie (8e de finale) : « comparé aux autres années, je débarque avec plus de confiance. La quinzaine en Australie (8e de finaliste) m'a apporté beaucoup d'expérience sur comment aborder les grands tournois. »

L’enjeu est de taille. Glaner des points dans la course aux JO de Paris. Le 77e mondial est seulement devancé de deux places par Arthur Rinderknech dans la course aux points pour décrocher la dernière des quatre places qualificatives. La dead line étant fixée à la fin des Internationaux de France : « Après ma blessure, j’avais fait une croix sur la qualification car je savais que j’allais rater toute la saison sur terre. C’était mort avec ma cinquième place mais Adrian Mannarino a annoncé qu’il n’allait pas les disputer ça me laisse encore une chance, mais je me consacre d’abord sur ce tournoi et on fera les comptes à la fin si j’ai gagné ma petite place. Ce serait un gros bonus . »

Rafael Nadal, l'homme aux 22 titres du Grand Chelem est l'idole du Français du 77e mondial son inspiration depuis le plus jeune âge. Cazaux aura un œil très attentif sur la prestation de son idole contre Alexander Zverev « C’est un premier tour de légende ça va être plaisant à voir. C’est grâce à Nadal que je suis venu au tennis. Les valeurs qui l’incarnent sont proches des miennes. Ça fait bizarre de le croiser dans les vestiaires. Ce serait top de l’affronter avant la fin de sa carrière. »

Roland-Garros 2024 : mise à mal d’entrée, Caroline Garcia s’en sort et rejoint le deuxième tour

Une qualification pour le deuxième tour validée, mais une jauge de confiance encore bien loin d’être remplie. Caroline Garcia s’est fait peur , dimanche 26 mai, au premier tour de Roland-Garros . La numéro 1 française a eu besoin de trois manches et 2h12 de jeu pour s’imposer face à l’Allemande et 143e à la WTA, Eva Lys (4-6, 7-5, 6-2).

La 23e mondial e avait pourtant l’avantage du classement et de l’expérience face à une joueuse de 22 ans issue des qualifications et qui faisait ses premiers pas dans le tableau principal de Roland-Garros.  Sur le Central, dans une enceinte couverte, l’Allemande et la Française ont joué pendant deux   sets à "à toi, à moi", avant que Caroline Garcia ne prenne l'avantage à la toute fin de la deuxième manche.

18 aces mais 57% de premières balles

Pour son entame dans le tournoi, la numéro   1 française a fait preuve de régularité... dans l’irrégularité. Face à une Eva Lys qui a joué sa chance, elle a offert le premier set en ne concédant pas moins de 21   fautes directes. Capable d’aligner 18   aces (dont un sur la balle de match) pour se sortir de situations piégeuses, l’ancienne numéro 4 mondiale n’a pour autant pas réussi à faire grimper son pourcentage de premier service réussi (57% en moyenne, seulement 51% au premier set).

Caroline Garcia parvient à breaker son adversaire sur un superbe retour; ça va mieux pour la Française dans ce 3e set qui mène dans la dernière manche.

A ses fulgurances, comme cet amorti du deuxième jeu à l’entame du deuxième set, se sont succédé d’innombrables fautes directes, plus ou moins grossières. Au total, la Française a fauté 41   fois (contre 31 pour son adversaire) et commis à huit reprises une double faute, dont une juste après avoir pris le service de son adversaire et l'avantage (à 5-4, au deuxième set).

Là, le public tricolore s'est réveillé pour pousser derrière sa championne et Eva Lys a commencé à montrer ses failles, forçant ses coups et poussant la balle hors des lignes du terrain. Une fragilité entrevue au moment de conclure la première manche avec notamment deux balles de set envoyées dans le couloir. 


"Ce n'est jamais facile de commencer un nouveau Roland-Garros. Eva a fait un super match. Elle est jeune et arrivée pleine de confiance. Elle m'a posé des problèmes en étant très agressive", a concédé Caroline Garcia à l'issue de la rencontre. "J'ai réussi à rester dans le match et à progresser au fil du temps, à rester combative", a analysé l a Française, qui vit un début de saison sur terre compliqué.

Après avoir atteint les demi-finales du tournoi ATP   250 de Rouen (perdue contre Sloane Stephens), Caroline Garcia n'a pas réussi à dépasser le deuxième tour à Madrid puis Rome. Elle a désormais rendez-vous au deuxième tour porte d'Auteuil avec  l’Américaine Sofia Kenin , 56e mondiale et fina liste des Internationaux de France en 2020.

Un petit lot de consolation pour le Lille. Une semaine après avoir laissé échapper la troisième place de Ligue 1 , directement qualificative pour la phase de poules de la Ligue des champions, le Losc a bénéficié d’un petit coup de pouce dimanche. Le titre du Cercle de Bruges en Belgique et la quatrième place arrachée par l’Atalanta en Serie A (qui envoie Benfica directement en phase de poules) permettent aux Nordistes d’aborder ce troisième tour comme l’une des quatre têtes de série au jeu du coefficient UEFA.

Fenerbahçe, le plus corsé

Les Lillois (47.000 points UEFA) évitent ainsi les Glasgow Rangers (63.000), le Slavia Prague (53.000) ou le Red Bull Salzbourg (50.000). Au 3e tour, les Lillois pourraient ainsi affronter les Belges de l’Union Saint-Gilloise, les Néerlandais de Twente, les Turcs de Fenerbahçe, les Ukrainiens du Dynamo Kiev, les Serbes du Partizan Belgrade ou les Suisses de Lugano. Les quatre dernières équipes citées s’affronteront au 2e tour.

Le match aller aura lieu le 6 ou 7 août avant le retour une semaine plus tard, soit avant la reprise du championnat de France. En cas de qualification, les hommes de Paulo Fonseca (dont l’avenir sur le banc nordiste est très incertain) devraient encore passer par les barrages. S’ils s’en sortaient de nouveau, ils intégreraient alors la phase de poule de la nouvelle formule de la Ligue des champions en compagnie du PSG, Monaco et Brest.

Les Dogues, qui restent sur un beau parcours en Conference League (élimination en quarts de finale conter Aston Villa), ont disputé la Ligue des champions pour la dernière fois en 2021-2022. Sortis premiers de leur groupe devant Salzbourg, Séville et Wolfsburg, ils avaient été éliminés en huitièmes de finale par Chelsea.

Parmi cette myriade de duels, dont 128 oppositions pour le premier tour du tournoi simple hommes et femmes, Le Point a sélectionné six rencontres qui valent absolument le coup d'œil, tout en vous permettant de conserver un minimum de temps libre à côté.

Alexander Zverev – Rafael Nadal

C'est probablement LE match dont chaque amateur de tennis parle depuis le tirage au sort du 23 mai. Rafael Nadal, roi du tournoi, suivi par six mille personnes lors de sa première séance d'entraînement lundi dernier, dispute très probablement cette année son dernier « Roland ». Miné par les blessures, le natif de Majorque a dégringolé au classement ATP, pointant à la 276 e place.

Conséquence directe, il se retrouve face à la tête de série numéro 4 du tournoi, le géant (1,98 m) allemand Alexander Zverev, demi-finaliste du dernier Open d'Australie et vainqueur du Masters 1000 de Rome. Mais il y a fort à parier que le public sera du côté de l'Espagnol pour ce premier tour qui promet d'être explosif.

Ugo Umbert – Lorenzo Sonego

Tête de série tricolore (17 e à l'ATP), Ugo Umbert n'a pas eu beaucoup de chance au tirage : il est tombé sur l'Italien Lorenzo Sonego (50 e à l'ATP) qui a atteint les huitièmes de finale, à deux reprises, porte d'Auteuil.

Matteo Arnaldi – Arthur Fils

L'autre tête de série française chez les hommes, l'espoir Arthur Fils (29 e à l'ATP) est opposé, lui aussi, à un Italien, Matteo Arnaldi (36 e à l'ATP). Les deux joueurs s'étaient rencontrés au Masters 1000 de Miami en mars dernier. Avantage Arnaldi, pour le moment.

Stanislas Wawrinka – Andy Murray

Ce n'est pas le tournoi des légendes, mais presque. Le Suisse Wawrinka, vainqueur en 2015, affronte l'Écossais Murray, finaliste en 2016. À respectivement 39 et 37 ans, les deux gloires s'offrent, à l'instar de Rafael Nadal, un très probable dernier tour de piste du côté de la porte d'Auteuil. On sera là !

Caroline Garcia – Eva Lys

Elle l'a répété lors du Media Day organisé vendredi à Roland-Garros : Caroline Garcia (classée 23 e à la WTA) « croit en [ses] chances ». La joueuse de 30 ans hérite d'un premier tour qui semble à sa portée face à l'Allemande Eva Lys, issue des qualifications. Mais cela pourrait se compliquer dès le tour suivant, car elle pourrait rencontrer l'Américaine Sofia Kenin, finaliste de Roland-Garros en 2020.

Qinwen Zheng – Alizé Cornet

Dernier tour de piste pour Alizé Cornet , elle aussi ! Ancienne numéro 1 française, elle tire sa révérence après le tournoi de Roland-Garros pour se consacrer, entre autres, à sa carrière de romancière. Mais avant de prendre la plume, il va falloir porter la raquette, une dernière fois, contre la Chinoise Qinwen Zhang (tête de série numéro 8), finaliste du dernier Open d'Australie.

Roland-Garros 2024 : Gasquet, Moutet, Wawrinka et Garcia qualifiés, Humbert éliminé, revivez la journée du dimanche 26 mai

Le premier tour des Internationaux de France débute dimanche et s’étalera jusqu’à mardi. Caroline Garcia, Richard Gasquet et Carlos Alcaraz disputent notamment leur premier match aujourd’hui.

  • Le résumé de cette journée à Roland-Garros
  • Roland-Garros, c’est parti, et bien parti ! Les favoris ont répondu présent pour cette première journée. L’Espagnol Carlos Alcaraz a notamment expédié J.J. Wolf en trois petits sets (6-1, 6-2, 6-1), pendant qu’Andrey Rublev s’en est sorti en quatre manches contre Taro Daniel. Grigor Dimitrov, Hubert Hurkacz, Jelena Ostapenko et Naomi Osaka se sont également extirpés du premier tour, alors que la journée a été perturbée par la pluie.
  • Du côté des Français, le tournoi a commencé par une énorme déception. N°1 tricolore, Ugo Humbert a rendu les armes, battu en quatre sets par Lorenzo Sonego (6-4, 2-6, 6-4, 6-3). Mais les bonnes nouvelles se sont ensuite enchaînées ! Richard Gasquet a notamment réussi un match magnifique pour se défaire de Borna Coric (7-6, 7-6, 6-4). Quelques minutes plus tôt, Caroline Garcia avait également rallié le deuxième tour, dans la difficulté, en venant à bout d’Eva Lys (4-6, 7-5, 6-2).
  • A noter également les qualifications d’Alexandre Müller, de Chloé Paquet et de Corentin Moutet. Ce dernier a réussi une grosse performance en sortant la tête de série n°16, Nicolas Jarry, en quatre sets (6-2, 6-1, 3-6, 6-0), dans un court Simonne-Mathieu en feu. Dans le même temps, Stanislas Wawrinka a remporté le choc des anciens vainqueurs de tournois du Grand Chelem face à Andy Murray (6-4, 6-4, 6-2).

  • Le point à Roland
  • Roland-Garros, c’est parti ! Et les favoris répondent pour l’instant présent. L’Espagnol Carlos Alcaraz a notamment expédié J.J. Wolf en trois petits sets (6-1, 6-2, 6-1), pendant que Andrey Rublev s’en est sorti en quatre manches contre Taro Daniel. Grigor Dimitrov, Hubert Hurkacz, Jelena Ostapenko et Naomi Osaka se sont également extirpés du premier tour, alors que la première journée a été perturbée par la pluie.
  • Du côté des Français, le tournoi a commencé par une énorme déception. N °1 tricolore, Ugo Humbert a déjà rendu les armes, battu en quatre sets par Lorenzo Sonego (6-4, 2-6, 6-4, 6-3). Mais depuis, les bonnes nouvelles s’enchaînent ! Richard Gasquet a notamment réussi un match magnifique pour se défaire de Borna Coric (7-6, 7-6, 6-4). Quelques minutes plus tôt, Caroline Garcia avait également rallié le deuxième tour, dans la difficulté, en venant à bout d’Eva Lys (4-6, 7-5, 6-2). A noter également les qualifications d’Alexandre Müller et de Chloé Paquet.
  • Dans le reste de l’actualité, la soirée sera notamment marquée par le « choc des anciens » entre deux ex-vainqueurs de Grand Chelem : Stanislas Wawrinka-Andy Murray. Corentin Moutet a également commencé son match face au Chilien Nicolas Jarry, tout comme Harold Mayot face à Sebastian Korda.

  • Du côté des Français, le tournoi a commencé par une énorme déception. N °1 tricolore, Ugo Humbert a déjà rendu les armes, battu en quatre sets par Lorenzo Sonego (6-4, 2-6, 6-4, 6-3). Les supporteurs tricolores espèrent maintenant que Richard Gasquet et Caroline Garcia vont leur redonner le sourire, les deux Français viennent de commencer leurs matchs, respectivement sur les courts Suzanne-Lenglen et Philippe-Chatrier.
  • Dans le reste de l’actualité, et si le temps le permet, du beau monde va encore passer sur les courts de Roland-Garros d’ici la fin de la journée. Côté français, Térence Atmane, Corentin Moutet, Alexandre Müller, Harold Mayot et Chloé Paquet sont attendus, avant l’affiche de la journée, en night-session  : Stanislas Wawrinka-Andy Murray.

Tout le live

Il est temps pour nous de vous dire au revoir.

La journée a été magnifique sur la terre battue de Roland-Garros, mais toutes les bonnes choses ont une fin et il est l’heure de se souhaiter bonne nuit. On se retrouve dès demain, 10 heures, pour la suite des aventures de la petite balle jaune sur les courts de la Porte d’Auteuil. Bonne soirée !

Et celle de Moutet !

Je vais me coucher, je suis crevé. Bonne nuit Messieurs ! Et merci !

Bonne nuit cher Drésienne ! Pour nous aussi, il va bientôt être l’heure de ranger nos affaires, après une bien belle journée de tennis.


Incroyable Corentin Moutet ! Opposé à la tête de série numéro 16, le Chilien Nicolas Jarry, le Français a usé de ses coups de patte pour l’emporter et rallier le deuxième tour. Dans un court Simonne-Mathieu en feu, Moutet s’impose finalement 6-2, 6-1, 3-6, 6-0.

Jeu, set et match Wawrinka !

D’un dernier revers gagnant, le Suisse conclu la rencontre en trois sets face à Murray (6-4, 6-4, 6-2). L’Ecossais a eu du mal physiquement, mais c’est accroché jusqu’au bout.

Moutet, c'est plutôt "jusqu'au bout de mes revers" et coups droits...

Si les joueurs ont parfois connu quelques baisses de rythme, le DJ du court Philippe-Chatrier a joué à son meilleur niveau toute la soirée. Il termine fort.

5-0 pour Moutet contre Jarry !

Vous la sentez cette bonne odeur de victoire ?

Ça sent très très bon pour Wawrinka !

6-4, 6-4, 5-1 pour le Suisse, face à Murray trop diminué physiquement pour lutter.

Moutet jusqu’au bout de nos rêves !

Le Français vient de réaliser le double break face à Jarry et mène 4 à 0 dans la troisième manche contre Jarry. Il est à deux jeux de la victoire, et en plus il fait le show  !

Pas trop mauvais ce jeune suisse, n’est-ce pas ?

Dites, on peut vous écrire tout ce qu'on veut ou il y a des limites ? C'est pour bien calibrer.

Vous pouvez écrire ce que vous voulez, mais on ne vous promet pas de passer tous les messages ! On essaye de faire attention un minimum.

Atmane commence un peu à craquer…

Le Français a malheureusement manqué l’occasion de conclure et a concédé la troisième manche au tie-break face à Ofner. Il a aussi concédé le break d’entrée dans la quatrième. Aie, aie, aie…

Sympa de retranscrire ce live de 2012, ça me rajeunit de les voir sous vos post Stan et Andy

Sachez même que la première confrontation professionnelle entre les deux hommes a eu lieu en 2005, lors d’un match par équipe. Wawrinka l’avait à l’époque emporté, mais c’est Murray qui mène les confrontations entre les deux joueurs (13-9). L’écart semble être parti pour se réduire.

Murray semble aller dans le mur (et les haies)

L’Ecossais ne marque plus un point alors que Wawrinka réussit tout ce qu’il tente. Il mène 3 à 0 dans la troisième manche.

Les français seraient ils un peu fan du Live du Monde pour, mine de rien, le prolonger à notre grand bénéfice?

Je crois qu’ils sont surtout fans de vos remarques en tous genres, pour nous permettre de les lire plus longtemps !

Break de Corentin Moutet !

Ca sent bon pour le Français, qui mène deux sets à un, et 2-0 dans la quatrième manche contre Jarry !

Un petit tu, tu , tut pour les français ( et les écossais ) ?

Mais avec grand plaisir !

Le contexte

Live animé par Mathieu Maine et Valentin Moinard

Bienvenue dans ce direct consacré à l’édition 2024 du tournoi de tennis de Roland-Garros. Qui succédera à Iga Swiatek et Novak Djokovic au palmarès du Grand Chelem parisien ?
