My list of 10 favorites to win the Tour confirms the enormous uncertainty of this Tour 2019. And I left out great cyclists that in the Tour can dazzle and cause huge surprises.
To set my favorites for the Tour de France 2019 I have taken into account the following criteria:
- The form in this season.
- His recent past in Grand Tours (SGs).
- The quality of its team particularly performance in the team time trial (CRE) and support in offensive and defensive tasks.
- Mountain performance, particularly in the high mountains.
- His performance in the individual time trial (CRI).
- Performance in the most highly likely scenarios that will define the final standings.
