There will be six Americans tucked away in the 176-rider peloton that's rolling from the Tour de France start line in Bilbao, Spain, this Saturday. All the riders have ridden the Tour before, but only Sepp Kuss comes in as a former stage winner. With less time trial distance than last year and four mountain top finishes, this year's Tour looks to be a very exciting edition and an opportunity for American talent to show themselves. Here's who to look out for in this year's Tour de France.
