The End of the Tour: ‘It’s the end of the road for the Tour de France’

A day after the French Tour de Britain ended on a low note, the race’s organizers have released a statement saying that the event is now off the books. 

A total of 30 riders will have to make a selection to return to the Tour, including the likes of Tom Dumoulin and Alberto Contador. 

The French media have been calling for the cancellation of the race, saying that it is an unnecessary expense and a disservice to the race. 

Contador is also due to ride the Giro d’Italia in May. 

However, he has confirmed he will not return to race in May and that he has signed a contract with Omega Pharma-Quick Step for the remainder of the season. 

With only two of the top five teams in the race set to be confirmed, it has been a long-running, high-profile feud between the teams. 

But the end result was one of the lowest-profile races in recent memory, and the fact that so many of the main contenders were able to survive a short but intense battle on the road to the finish line. 

There are many who have predicted that the outcome of the final stage could prove decisive in determining who will finish in the top three on the overall leaderboard, but with so many riders still in contention, the final decision will likely lie with the winner of the stage. 

It has been one of cycling’s most unpredictable races in years, and there is no shortage of drama, with riders and teams battling to survive the day’s finale. 

We have already announced the winners of the races for the 2016-2017 and 2018-2019 seasons and will announce the winner for the 2019 Grand Tour. “

We wish to thank all those who supported us during the past 12 years. 

We have already announced the winners of the races for the 2016-2017 and 2018-2019 seasons and will announce the winner for the 2019 Grand Tour. 

These races are a great source of support to the cycling community and the Tour for our families and the riders who make up the peloton.” 

The Grand Tour will now take place as a pre-event for the upcoming Tour de Suisse. 

Here’s what you need to know about the race: 1. 

Stage 2: The winner of Stage 2 will get an additional three points for their overall classification. 

This will be added to the points accumulated in Stage 1, which means that if the overall champion finishes in the Top 10 in Stage 2, they will get another three points. 


Race director Marc Valls said that the winner would be the one who “sees themselves in the middle of the pack” in Stage 3. 

He said: “The race is very important. 

Its the best race for riders. 

When you start the race you have to be able to put yourself in the best position to win the race and then it’s up to you to decide who will go out with the win and who will win with the loss. 

 “I think the winner will see themselves in this group and see the situation that is in front of them. 

I think this is going to be a race for two or three riders.” 


All three stage races will take place on Saturday. 

Four days earlier, the first stage of the 2016 Tour de Yorkshire was a relatively quiet affair. 

On stage 1, the stage finished in Cote de Lourdes. 

Two days later, it started in Tuscany and finished in Palermo. 

After two days, the riders will race along the shores of the Adriatic Sea in the southern Italian province of Sardinia. 

At the start of Stage 1 on Saturday, the pelotons will cross the finish straight on the Adria River and head for the town of Vittoria. 

That’s where the first group will start to build towards the first climb, the Cote di Lourdelle. 


Santiago Fernandez, the only Spanish rider to win a Grand Tour, will ride a hard-fought attack. 

Fernandez, who finished in the bottom two in the 2016 Vuelta a España, has been looking for a repeat of last year’s success. 

His lead-out man, Ivan Basso, is now on his fifth Tour of Britain, winning the first two stages of the 2011 Tour and the second stage of 2014. 


Fabio Aru will lead a breakaway for the first time. 

Rafal Majka will lead the break. 

Majka finished seventh in the 2017 Tour de l’Avenir, having previously won stage wins in the 2010 Tour de Pologne and 2013 Tour de Romandie.
