Tour De France Tips


The 2022 Tour de France will be the 109th edition of the Tour de France. It will start in Copenhagen, Denmark on 1 July and end with the final stage at Champs-Élysées, Paris on 24 July.

The fight for yellow always dominates the narrative, but there will be plenty of subplots with the battle for the green jersey and the hunt for stage wins that can make or break a career.

The 2022 Tour will see a clash of Slovenians, with Primož Roglič steeled and determined to beat back his compatriot Tadej Pogačar, who seems destined to rule the Tour roost for quite some time.

Behind these two behemoths is Ineos Grenadiers, the UK super-team that dominated the Tour for much of a decade. Without a confirmed winner like Chris Froome or the injured Egan Bernal, the team will struggle to equal the Slovenians.

Adam Yates, Dani Martinez and perhaps a revived Geraint Thomas can push for the podium, and the team will ride the experience and knowledge that carried them to the heights during the peak years of the Wiggins/Froome era, when the team won seven tours in eight years by four different riders.

Betting Picks:

Tadej Pogacar @4/5

We think the only person who can beat Pogacar is himself, so his race to lose.

Podium Picks:

Geraint Thomas @12/1 E/W

Primoz Roglic @4/1 E/W

Outsider Pick:

Adam Yates @40/1

Week One is for the sprinters, and once the Tour lands back in France stage 4 to Calais will see another chance for the fast finishers. Sprinters should have up to six perhaps even seven chances in this Tour, but they will have to work for them after stage 4.

Week Two pushes deep into the French Alps, with stage with stage 10 climbing Megève with a second-category summit finale.

Week Three Stage 19 should be a mass sprint, if there are any legs left in the bunch to chase. Any loose strings will be tidied up in the 40.7km individual time trial from Lacapelle-Marival to Rocamadour. The rolling terrain features a few minor climbs, so it is a pure power course and for anyone left with strength in their legs.

The fun wraps up for the final laps on the Champs-Élysées on July 24.
