Big news on a cold Thursday morning: it is officially 100 days until the Tour de France. Now I know most of you already knew this, tearing off page after page from your Christian Prudhomme-themed Tour countdown calendar, but for those that didn't, there is your big news. Just a century of days until the peloton rolls out of Bilbao on Saturday 1 July.

Therefore, we thought this would be the perfect time to assess the runners and riders that will likely take to the start line of the 110th edition of the race, all of whom will harbour some hope of pulling on the yellow jersey 23 days later in Paris. This is the Cycling Weekly power list.
