The Tour de France 2022 is nearly over, but the race is still far from done and dusted. Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates), the winner of the past two Tours de France, has to make up just over two minutes on Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) if he wants to win his third straight title.

We can expect the Slovenian to be on the offensive for the next couple of stages, which should make for some fascinating and exciting racing well worth tuning in for!
