The Tour de France  2018 was the 105th staging of the most important stage race in road cycling .

Overall winner of the tour was Geraint Thomas ( Team Sky ) with 1:51 minutes ahead of Tom Dumoulin ( Team Sunweb ) and 2:24 on last year's winner Chris Froome (also Sky). Thomas took over the yellow jersey with his victory on the 11th stage , the mountain finish in La Rosière, and extended his lead with his second stage victory on the 12th stage , the mountain finish in Alpe d'Huez .

Peter Sagan ( Bora-hansgrohe ), who won the 2nd , 5th and 13th stage in the sprint, was the winner of the points classification for the sixth time with a record lead . Fernando Gaviria ( Quick-Step Floors ) and Dylan Groenewegen ( Team Lotto NL-Jumbo ) also won two stages in the sprint, but were eliminated in the course of the tour.

Julian Alaphilippe ( Quick-Step Floors ), who was the first rider to complete four climbs hors categorie first, won the mountain classification and two mountain stages with the 10th and 16th stages .

The junior competition was won by Pierre Latour ( Ag2r La Mondiale ) , who was thirteenth overall .

The team championship was won by the Movistar Team , with Mikel Landa as seventh overall and the winner of the 17th stage Nairo Quintana as 10th, two drivers placed in the top ten. Quick-Step Floors was the team with the most stage wins, with four successes.

Daniel Martin ( UAE Team Emirates ), overall eighth and winner of the 6th stage , was awarded the red number as the most combative driver.


The Grand Départ took place on July 7, 2018 in the Pays de la Loire . The first stage began in Noirmoutier-en-l'Île on an Atlantic island , ran for 201 kilometers and ended in Fontenay-le-Comte on the mainland.

The highlights of the route included the 3rd stage in the form of a team time trial on flat terrain, the 9th stage with 21.7 kilometers of cobblestone passages, the 10th stage with 1.8 kilometers of gravel road, the 11th stage with around 5,000 meters of altitude 17th stage with 38 kilometers of ascent on only 65 racing kilometers and the 20th stage in the form of an individual time trial over hilly terrain.

The final stage took place on July 29, 2018 in Île-de-France . This time the 21st stage began in Houilles , ran for 116 kilometers and ended, as always since 1975, on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris .

Teams and drivers

In addition to the 18 automatically qualified World Teams with Cofidis , Direct Énergie , Fortuneo-Samsic and Wanty-Groupe Gobert, the organizer ASO invited four UCI Professional Continental Teams . According to the changed UCI regulations for the Grand Tours , the number of riders per team has been reduced from nine to eight. So only 176 drivers started.

There was controversy over the participation of the defending champion Chris Froome . At the Vuelta a España 2017 , this exceeded the permitted limit for the asthma drug salbutamol . Nevertheless, he was acquitted by the International Cycling Federation UCI and the World Anti-Doping Agency WADA on the basis of “scientific reports” and “specific factors”. Parts of the audience, however, booed him.

In addition to the 33-year-old Brit, Rigoberto Urán ( EF Education First ) came second, last year’s third Romain Bardet ( Ag2r La Mondiale ), points winner Michael Matthews ( Sunweb ), mountain classification winner Warren Barguil ( Fortuneo-Samsic ) and five times Stage winner Marcel Kittel ( Katusha Alpecin ) offers more riders who were successful in 2017.
