Why the Tour 2019 will be unmissable…
Thomas’s defence: Geraint Thomas was a hugely popular winner last year and captured the UK public’s imagination winning BBC Sport Personality of the Year award. There will be massive interest in his bid to defend his Tour title this year.
Rivalry with Chris Froome: Thomas and Froome are both leaders at Team Ineos. There is much speculation and interest in whether they can both try to win the Tour without falling out.
Froome’s fifth: If Thomas does not repeat his 2018 victory this could be Chris Froome’s fifth Tour de France victory, which would elevate the Briton into the most exclusive club of Tour champions.

The bikes: This could be the year that disc brakes are used on the majority of bikes at the Tour.
Mark Cavendish: Last year Cav failed to win a stage and had to pull out. He has 30 Tour stage wins, with Eddy Merckx holding the record on 34. Can the Manx Missile equal or even break the record in 2019?
Brussels start: The Tour’s Grand Depart will be in Brussels to honour Eddy Merckx, who won his first Tour 50 years ago and went on to win five. Merckx is the best cyclist of all time.
