The Tour de France opens with a 13.8-km (8.57-mile) individual time trial in Utrecht in the Netherlands. Let's hope the weather is great and racing is fast! There are 198 cyclists ready to go. Will a time-trail speedster like Tony Martin come out on top? We shall see. Below is our first prediction for this year's Tour de France.
Stage 1: 16' 38" (prediction)
We did well with most of the elite cyclists in last year's time trial, except Tony Martin was a bit faster than we thought. I hope everyone enjoys the first stage!
