After nine days of racing, it is fair to say it has been a pretty brutal start to the 2023 Tour de France. This year's race has already covered two out of France's five mountain ranges in the shape of the Pyrenees and the Massif Central, which has led to some explosive racing - particularly between the two race favorites, Tadej Pogačar and Jonas Vingegaard.
