Readers name what they would like to see happen in the 2017 Tour de France's final two weeks

TAGS:

The Tour de France‘s opening week is reaching its conclusion, with the race really starting to kick off at the weekend with a pair of punishing stages in the Jura mountains.

We asked Cycling Weekly readers what they were most looking forward to in this year’s Tour, and present a selection of their answers, in association with B’Twin.

What are you most looking forward to in the final two weeks of this year’s Tour? Let us know in the comment section below.

The competition! I think the top five are going to show us fireworks that we have not seen in years. Froome has his work cut out this year. I’m also looking forward to seeing the younger guys finally having the balls to try and win instead of placing in the top 10.
Scott R. Smith

A performance from Yates that makes him a future contender. Froome being unpredictable.

Obviously good sportsmanship from all teams, good weather, better crowd/spectator control, and one hell of a race with the best athlete wearing the yellow jersey on the final day. Bring it on!

I think Chris Froome will be pushed to his limits this year and hopefully we can see Richie Porte on the podium in Paris after the last stage.
Nejc Pavlin

I’m looking forward to finding out if Romain Bardet is actually David Millar’s son. They look suspiciously similar and he’s bound to let it slip out somewhere during three weeks’ of commentary.
Adam Downer

For the first time in 25 years all the main mountain ranges in France will be used. Climb, Climb, Climb!

More early two-to-four man attacks from the same team. I’d like to see Sagan, Quintana, Porte and other GC contenders push Froome beyond his limits.

Team cars and bikes behaving themselves. Being there to watch team presentation and Grand Départ with family. Joining in caravan warm-up like we did in Samur last year.

Drunk fans, in various states of dress, or not, ‘escorting’ the riders up hilltop finishes! As long as they don’t interfere with the riders…
