Tour de France: July 6 – 28

The Tour de France is without doubt the biggest race of the year. For 2019, the organisers have opted to limit the number of time trial kilometres — on paper, this limits the chances of the star Dutch rider and time trial specialist Tom Dumoulin. Instead, there’s a host of spectacular mountain stages scheduled during the final week. Let’s hope the race stays exciting right until the end.
