The 2017 Tour de France kicks off with a 14-kilometre time trial around the Germany city of Düsseldorf.

Pre-race favourite Tony Martin (Katusha-Alpecin) will don his world champion’s skinsuit in an attempt to secure a popular home victory as he takes on some of the world’s best riders.

Defending champion Chris Froome (Team Sky) will attempt to gain some early time on his general classification rivals, namely Richie Porte (BMC), Nairo Quintana (Movistar) and Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo).
