What to know
Team Sunweb lost its hopes at winning the Tour de France overall when Tom Dumoulin departed the squad for Jumbo-Visma. Now, the German squad enters the Tour hoping to chase stage victories with breakaway specialists Tiesj Benoot and Søren Kragh Andersen. Versatile sprinter Michael Matthews is not racing the Tour this year, meaning no run at the green jersey for the team.
It will be interesting to follow Sunweb’s transition from GC team to opportunist squad. On paper, Benoot, Kragh Andersen, and Nicolas Roche are three strong breakaway riders. And Cees Bol presents a strong finisher for the sprints.
