Tour de France 2021 start list: Teams for the 108th edition

Here are the squads down to race the 2021 Tour de France

The 2021 Tour de France kicks off on Saturday, June 26 in Brest, with over 170 riders expected to take to the start line.

The race will be seeing the usual big names battle it out over three weeks with Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) expected to return to the race he lost on the penultimate day to Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates), who is also expected to return to defend his title.

Alongside the Slovenian stars there will be Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers) with his team mate, Richard Carapaz, plus Mikel Landa (Bahrain Victorious), Simon Yates (Team BikeExchange), Chris Froome (Israel Start-up Nation), Nairo Quintana (Arkéa-Samsic) and many more down to ride.

The sprinting list is a real bumper pack too with the usual Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) down alongside team mate, Pascal Ackermann, Sam Bennnett (Deceuninck – Quick-Step) will be looking to retain his green jersey, as well as, Giacomo Nizzolo (Qhubeka-Assos), Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates), Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal), Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) and more besides.

The two stand-out favourites for the green jersey, that aren’t solely sprinters, are Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) and his bitter rival, Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix), who will be making his debut at the Tour in 2021.
