There are seven Americans taking the start at the 109th edition of the Tour de France which sets off from Copenhagen, Denmark on Friday. All from different teams, they include: Matteo Jorgenson of Movistar, Brandon McNulty of UAE Emirates, Sepp Kuss of Jumbo Visma, Nielson Powless of EF Education EasyPost, Quin Simmons of Trek Segafredo, Kevin Vermaerke of Team DSM and Joe Dombrowski of Astana Qazaqstan. 

Responsibilities and expectations will vary greatly within this group. Riders like McNulty and Kuss will no doubt be expected to be in the midst of the action in the most critical moments of the three-week race but it’s less clear what kind of roles the rest will play.
