The biggest loser in the race to become the new champion?
We asked the top riders to weigh in on the question and which ones will be the biggest losers.
Boris Johnson’s men have a huge advantage in that they have lost a lot of weight but they are also one of the biggest earners in the peloton.
They have ridden the most times in the last three months and have a lot riding experience to go with it.
They will have to fight hard to get back to the top.
Tom Dumoulin is another one who will struggle to get out of the bottom three.
He was one of only three riders to make it to the final of the Tour de France and is a lot weaker than most riders in the top ten.
He has ridden the biggest amount of time on the bike this season and has to be a lot more careful than most.
Vincenzo Nibali is another rider who has a big advantage over the rest.
He rode more than half the races this season but the rest of the field will have a hard time beating him in terms of time and distance.
He is still a lot stronger than most but it will be a fight to make the top 10.
Jurgen Roelandts is another of the most accomplished riders in this field.
He will have no problem getting back into the top five if he is able to put together a strong performance on the road this season.
But the real question is which one will have the best chance of pulling off the comeback.
Will Fabio Aru be the real contender in the field or is it more likely that Richie Porte will be in the mix for the win?
He is a rider who will have been out of action for most of the season and the other contenders are also likely to be battling hard to find form in the coming weeks.
For Porte, it is very important to keep his form on the track and get a win on the opening stage of the race.
If he is not there to take it, then it will all come down to who can be the better rider in the finale.
Another rider that could be looking at a big win is Michael Matthews.
The Italian is one of a handful of riders that will have had a big impact on the overall race and he is in the right place at the right time to make up for lost time.
He won the Tour of Britain in 2010 and 2012 but has not been the best rider this year.
There is also another rider that is very good in the early stages of the stage races but is not in the best form in general.
Dylan Groenewegen has a huge amount of experience but it is his form that will determine whether he is one to be in or out of contention for the victory.
Groeneman has a great time trial and he has won three stages at the Tour and he will be looking to take the overall lead in this race.
The biggest loser from the pelotons success this season is Alberto Contador.
Contador has not ridden well in the Tour since his crash at the start of this season which cost him time on a very long time trial.
He lost two stages and two sprint finishes and has a massive advantage over his rivals.
If Contador is out of it, the rest will be up to Tom Boonen and Nairo Quintana.
Boonen was the only rider who had a good time trial on the Tour, but his form has been inconsistent and he was forced to rely on his teammates to help him recover.
He did well in Stage 1 and then struggled badly in Stage 2 and he may be able to ride well in both of these stages.
Nubre is a very good time triallist and he also has the best stage time trial in the world.
He only had two stage wins in the 2014 Tour but he has proved that he can do it again in the WorldTour.
Davide Vigano and David Tanner have been the big disappointments in the GC this season with both of them dropping points.
Viganos results are good and he did win the Tour in 2014, but he struggled badly on the final stage and did not win a stage of this year’s Tour.
Tanners is another big disappointment with only two stage victories.
He struggled to get results in the previous two seasons and he lost time on this stage, which is why he will have difficulty in winning the overall.
Clement Chevrier is another who has had some big results in Tour de Suisse and the Tour but they have all come against a very tough team.
He also has some great time trials and he could easily take the win from the start.
Finally, there is Peter Sagan.
Sagan is one who has been the most consistent rider in this season’s race and has won the Giro and Tour de l’Avenir
