If you're planning on watching every minute of available live coverage and the full highlights packages from every stage of the Tour de France, you might find yourself sitting there thinking I wonder just which type of Grand Tour rider I would be?
Well, here's a cycling quiz that can help you answer that question and forget about all the barriers that actually stand between you and a professional cycling career.
On the face of it, nearly 200 men ride their bikes for three weeks around France and then one of them gets a nice new yellow jersey in Paris at the end. But as we all know, there's a lot more going on than just the battle for the overall classification.
Some riders will head out in a small breakaway group knowing that they have the slimmest chance of not being caught, but motivated by the glory that a stage win could bring.
Other riders go into the race with no hope of any personal success but will ride their legs off to keep their team leader in contention. Others may even get lucky and have the leadership thrown onto their shoulders when the team's first choice has a bad day.
Be sure to let us know your result and share the quiz with your cycling mates.
