Van Aert takes the lead ahead of Pogacar… The first stage in Copenhagen to follow with us

17h25 : Adam Yates takes off! The opportunity for me to ask if anyone has already solved the mystery of the Yates brothers? Which is which? Is there a trick to tell them apart?

17h22 : Pogacar who finished in Van Aert’s time having driven like Romain Grosjean, something tells me that he is once again ready to crush the competition. Rip the suspense.

5:20 p.m .: Tadej Pogacar juuuuust behind Van Aert! 2nd, two seconds behind Van Aert! If he didn’t miss all these turns, the victory was for him. Legs of fire for Tadej.

5.20 p.m .: VAN AERT BEST TIME AHEAD OF GARNA! 6 seconds ahead for the Belgian. Tadej Pogacar remains.

17h15 : This time is a bit like a sprint in biathlon, the best start halfway through the race and at the end there are only the big bibs left that everyone stamps on. You don’t care, you can turn off the TV. But I have to be there until the end. That said, I got paid.

5:13 p.m .: Van Aert in the same second as Roglic and MvdP in the first intermediate! Ganna a second behind. IT’S HOT!

5:10 p.m .: Van Aert slightly faster than Ganna! three seconds according to the live score (so not 10000% reliable). The winner is on the road, I think.

17h07 : It rolls hard Ganna, it looks like me on the track of Longchamp.


5:02 p.m .: Favorite alert, the time trial world champion, Filippo Ganna (Ineos) sets off!

4:57 p.m .: Vingegaard finally does better than Roglic! 3rd provisional time for the Dane two seconds behind MvdP, impressive at the end of the course, brother Jonas.


16h55 : Not bad at all Aleksandr Vlasov, 18 seconds from the lead. Interesting for the future for the leader of the Bora.

4:52 p.m .: Vingegaard 4 seconds behind Roglic and van der Poel at the first intermediate. The Dane is in on it.

16h50 : Given the level of the fleet on the road, I hope the guys have put on their rain tyres. Big risk of aquaplaning there.

4:48 p.m .: Bardet in the provisional top 10, he does a little better than Quintana and Gaudu. Oas bad, for a guy who does not play the general.

16h45 : Nairo Quintana in Gaudu’s time 35″ from van der Poel on the finish line.

4:43 p.m .: Let’s go for Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma), the 2nd in the Tour 2021!

16h42 : Mads Pedersen fails a second and a half behind Mathieu van der Poel. Cruel for the Dane, who is playing at home today.

16h41 : Quintana filing Caleb Ewan, why not after all?

4:40 p.m .: Let’s go for Vlasov, one of the outsiders of this Tour de France

4:35 p.m .: ROGLIC BEHIND VAN DER POEL FOR TWO SECONDS! It’s raining more and more, that may have played in this final. Strong Slovenian in any case.

4:33 p.m .: Romain Bardet sets off!

16h30 : Roglic arrives on the last part of the course. While Benjamin Thomas (Cofidis) fails 20 seconds from MvdP.

4:28 p.m .: DAVID GAUDU VERY FAR! 35 seconds behind Van der Poel at the finish line.

4:27 p.m .: How did I miss the departure of Primoz Roglic? Unless it’s the ad’s fault?

4:25 p.m .: Van der Poel catching up with his predecessor, the agility and power of cyclo-cross at work. For the moment, he is the virtual leader! He is ahead of Mollema for three short seconds.

16h23 : The question that everyone is asking, can we attack on a time trial?

4:19 p.m .: Daniel Felipe Martinez sets off! The Colombian from Ineos will have to be watched throughout this Tour.

16h18 : Oh, la, la, it’s really bad luck Bisseger falls again… Tires too inflated?

4:17 p.m .: Lecroq reference time on the finish line in 16’19 “

16h15 : Let’s go for Benjamin Thomas, who this morning compared this time to a motorcycle Grand Prix.

“There is a lot of speed, analyzed the runner from Cofidis, the turns go by quickly without fear. A rider who knows how to turn well can save a lot of time”. That was before the rain.

4:12 p.m .: FALL OF BISSEGER! 90 degree turn, wet road, braking, locked wheels. Classic. The Swiss leaves.

4:10 p.m .: Let’s go for Mathieu van der Poel! First notable start on this time trial in Copenhagen.

16h05 : The road is already soaked, it was supposed to rain a little later, but in the end no one will pass through the drops. While Bisseger rushes with his extraordinary helmet.

4 p.m.: It’s on for Lecroq! The Tour de France 2022 opens in Danish rain.

15h55 : While waiting for the big favourites, don’t hesitate to take a look at this half serious, half funny paper on our predictions for this TdF 2022.

3:50 p.m.: Frenchman Jérémy Lecroq (B&B) will be the first to start.

It will be followed by Bauer, Boivin, Boassen Haggen and Mollema.

3:45 p.m .: I declare this Tour de France open! First starts in a quarter of an hour on this 13.2 km time trial.

Hey hey! Yes, that means hello in Danish, and it’s obviously circumstances for this big start of the Tour de France from Copenhagen this year. A double event, since the Tour had never started so far – moreover, there will be a day off from Monday to repatriate all these little people – and it’s been a while since we had the right to a timer to start the race. Who will be in yellow at the end of the 13 terminals on the program in the streets of the Danish capital? We don’t see how this first jersey could escape Filippo Ganna, but you know us, we like surprises.

>> See you around 3:30 p.m. to gently stir up the sauce before the first runner leaves…
