Is it going to be a Slovenian party on the Col de la Loze today?


Stage 17 of # TDF2020 features two of the hardest climbs in the history of @LeTour: - the iconic Col de la Madeleine ... with unprecedented slopes from a new side- the already infamous Col de la Loze, unprecedented in pro cycling (max gradient: 24%) #TDFdata |

Egan Bernal will sign up for that, we think.

Cycling🚴‍♂️ - Egan Bernal🇨🇴, the 2019 @LeTour 🏆 has abandoned the 2020 Tour.

The last 2 defending champions who abandoned the next year went on to win another 3 Tours. 1980 - Bernard Hinault (🏆78, 79, 81, 82, 85) 2014 - Chris Froome (🏆13, 15, 16, 17).

    For the first time, the riders in the Tour de France ride over the Col de la Loze.

    The final climb is already feared and is already called iconic by the organization.

    What this climb will do with the rankings, reporter Daan de Ridder tells presenter Bas Scharwachter.

    Due to the announcement of Bernal, no former Tour winner is in the race anymore.

    Last happened in 2014, after the retirement of Contador (and earlier Schleck and Froome in that round).

    The queen stage ends on a road that was only put into use a year ago.

    Organizer ASO hopes to have found a new Tour classic with the 2,304 meter high and very irregular Col de la Loze.

    Who are the favorites?

    So finish uphill today and that probably means that we will see the men of the classification, also when it comes to the stage victory.

    You can expect these names:

    • Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma)

    • Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates)

    • Miguel Ángel López (Astana)

    • Richie Porte (Trek-Segafredo)

    • Rigoberto Urán (EF Education First)

    This is the route map for today's stage, without Egan Bernal.

    The 17th stage goes from Grenoble to the top of the Col de la Loze (hors category climb).

    The peloton is faced with 168 kilometers.

    The official start is at 12:30 pm and the finish is expected between 5:00 pm and 5:40 pm.

    "Of course this is not how I want to leave the Tour de France, but I agree with the choice that this is the best for me given the circumstances. I have enormous respect for the Tour and look forward to returning. Bernal said in a statement from his team.

    Bernal did not start the Tour de France completely fit due to back problems.

    For that reason, the 23-year-old INEOS Grenadiers rider also got off in the Critérium du Dauphiné.

    The Colombian was still in good shape in the general classification for a long time, but lost a lot of time in recent days and was therefore able to forget a new overall victory.

    Bernal was sixteenth in the standings until today, 19.04 minutes behind leader Primoz Roglic.

    Bernal leaves the Tour de France

    Egan Bernal will no longer start in the Tour de France.

    The defending champion from Colombia, who was busy with a disappointing Tour de France, will focus on his recovery.

    Egan Bernal has withdrawn from the Tour de France ahead of stage 17.
