What makes the driving schedule for Tour 2015 look like? 2015, the Tour de France starts with a time trial in Utrecht. The second phase will take place entirely on Dutch soil. In the first week, there are still a few interesting stages of the program, including a journey that will end on the Mur de Huy, but also a Cobbles stage and a journey that ends at the Wall of Brittany. The main attractions are the mountain stages that run in the second and third week. In total there are officially seven mountain stages, including three tours in the Pyrenees and four in the Alps. The first official mountain stage is the 10th stage on Tuesday, July 14. This tour ends at the top of the Col de la Pierre St Martin. The penultimate stage of the Tour de France from Modane to L’Alpe d’Huez. In 2015, the Tour ends on Sunday July 26 in Paris.

Favorites Tour 2015

The big four
Tour de France 2015 seems to be a very interesting question, because presumably the “Big Four” of contemporary round riders in addition to participate: Spaniard Alberto Contador, the Briton Chris Froome, Italian Vincenzo Nibali and the Colombian Nairo Quintana.
Alberto Contador
Alberto Contador for many years was the best rider around the world. But he has officially “only” twice won the Tour de France. Contador now began, a classification riders, some will age and looks after his doping suspension is no longer so superior to be strong as before. But he is still one of the best athletes around the world, as he proved during the Vuelta 2014, he wrote to his name.
Contador not only because of his physical talent, but also because of its enormous character, his attack and tactical insight, 2015, again be among the Favorites for victory in the Tour. Contador has a grand plan for the 2015 season: he wants to win the Giro in spring and later in the summer, the Tour de France, and it is not excluded that after that he also would try to win the Vuelta. This is a very ambitious plan, there has never been a Bicyclist managed to win all three Grand Tours in one season.
Chris Froome
Briton Chris Froome had his international breakthrough in the Tour of Spain in 2011, when he surprisingly finished second in the final standings. The following year, he confirmed his class classification rider by finishing second in the Tour de France, behind his team leader of Team Sky, Bradley Wiggins. In 2013, Froome leader of heaven and he took overall victory in the Tour de France in a superior way.
Froome was forced to retire due to injury in the Tour de France 2014. He is still among the world’s leading classification riders belongs to, he showed in the Vuelta a España in 2014, where he finished second behind Contador. Froome is mainly physical talent excellent riders. Mentally and tactically, but he often appears to be something less than Contador.
Nairo Quintana
The Colombian Nairo Quintana is considered the biggest talent around the world. He is an exceptionally strong climber but also a pretty good time Trialist. Quintana was born on 4 February 1990. In 2013, he made his debut as a 23-year-old impressively in the Tour de France, he won the mountains classification, young rider classification, a stage and finished second in the overall standings. 2014 Quintana did not ride the Tour, the Giro and the Vuelta but focused on. He won the Giro, but during the Vuelta he dropped out injured. By 2015, he will focus on the Tour de France and he really must be counted among the Favorites for the overall victory.
Vincenzo Nibali
The Italian Vincenzo Nibali won the 2014 with great force, the Tour de France. During this tour were the two drivers who are advancing as the top favorites Golden, Contador and Froome, from damage. Quintana did mentioned not to participate in the Tour of 2014. Nibali is keen to prove in the Tour de France in 2015, that his superior Tour victory in 2014 was not due to the absence of these three toppers, but that he really is the best rider in the world.
Other classification riders
Progress in classification riders that makes a great chance of a top finish in the general classification of the Tour de France and the French Peraud 2015 include Bardet and Pinot. Especially Pinot, as 2014, finished third in the Tour and won the White Jersey, seen as the great hope in France.Another major candidate for a top result is the American Van Garderen.
Other important classification riders include Pierre Rolland and former world champion Rui Costa. But it is with these two riders who are waiting to see what in practice is their main goal during the Tour: they focus on the general classification, or do they focus more on stage wins? When American Cannondale Garmin run some drivers that need to be taken into account to be able to ride a good classification: Talansky, a former Giro winner Hesjedal and Daniel Martin. For these drivers, the question is: they focus on the classification or stage wins? Talansky possible will mainly focus on postures and Hesjedal and Martin will focus more on stage wins. When Etixx-Quickstep rider who rides two potential can ride a good classification: Rigoberto Uran and former world champion Michal Kwiatkowski. Possible Uranium will initially focus mainly on classification and Kwiatkowski will focus more on stage wins.
Movistar Team besides Quintana also Spaniard Alejandro Valverde status leader. In 2014, he was still 4: ai Tour and 2015 already 35-year-old Spaniard should back up the contenders for the top spots are counted. Another Spaniard who’s already mid-thirties, the Joaquim Rodriguez also be counted among the contenders for the top spots in the overall standings, but there’s a decent chance that Rodriguez in practice more will focus on stage victories and the mountains classification.
Another Spanish rider at age should not be regarded as a chance for a good result in the final ranking Haimar Zubeldia. Possibly one of the most talented, but still young British brothers Yates achieve good final classification in Tour 2015, although they have indicated that they want to focus primarily on the stage win and not so much on the general classification. The Tinkoff-Saxo Bank riding two drivers who could get a top result in GC, but that is likely to focus on their work for their team leader Contador: Kreuziger and Majka.
Dutch
The tour de France in 2015, also seems to be a very interesting contest to be the Dutch bike fans. Not only because of the launch of Utrecht, but also because of the good opportunities that have some Dutch for a good result in the final classification of the Tour de France. What talent Wilco Kelderman will work in 2015, during his tour debut? How will perform Bauke Mollema, he is now leader of the Trek team? Laurens ten Dam will again manage to reach the top ten of the general classification? And how will perform Robert Gesink in the Tour de France?
