Here’s the Confirmed Tour de France 2018 start list!

Tour de France 2017 results

 

This year’s biggest grand tour in the world, Tour de France, is set to start on July 7 in Noirmoutier en l’Île and end in Paris on July the 29th.

 

Despite the WorldTour squads which have an automatic entry into le Tour, the wildcard ones need to go through an examination before being hand-picked by ASO.

 

One of the main favourites this year is Chris Froome, the last year’s winner who has decided to return and claim another victory but not before being challenged by his main rivals which include Movistar’s Nairo Quintana and Bahrain-Merida’s Vincenzo Nibali as well as Richie Porte from BMC Racing who are all fighting for the yellow jersey.

 

Just like every year, Tour organizers will announce the official start list of Tour de France only a few days before the event takes place. However most of the top GC participants have already confirmed their members.
