The attention of Slovak fans will traditionally be focused mainly on the scoring competition, which has been ruled by a single man – Peter Sagan – over the past decade.Read more An unbeatable record? Sagan has him within reach
Žilinský rychlik has a record seven green jerseys for the triumph in the scoring and would like to add another this year.
This year’s Tour will offer several opportunities for spies and explosive riders.
The itinerary contains up to eight flat stages with expected mass travel. Plus, strong and fast riders get a chance in several classic finishes.
However, Sagana, who won the scoring in the Italian Gire in May, does not expect anything easy.
A complete spurtman is preparing for the Old Lady, including the defender of the rope triumph Sam Bennett, the Australian rocket Caleb Ewan or the domestic star Arnaud Démar.
However, Bennett has to deal with unexpected complications.
In preparation, he began to have problems with his right knee, for which he had to cancel his participation in the five-day Baloise Belgium Tour.
Peter Sagan, season
“Sam has knee problems, the doctors told him to rest. He will be replaced by Mark Cavendish in the line-up on the Baloise Belgium Tour, “the Deceuninck-QuickStep team said in a statement.
Bennett last competed in May at the Portuguese Volta and Algarve events. He has seven triumphs so far this season.
It has long been known that he will leave QuickStep after the season. The most serious candidates for his services are Bora-Hansgrohe and Ineos Grenadiers.
