The 2019 Tour de France was the 106th edition of the most important stage race in road cycling . It started on July 6, 2019 in Brussels and ended on July 28, 2019 in Paris on the Champs-Elysees . The Grand Tour stage race is part of the UCI WorldTour 2019 .

Design of the yellow jersey

In May 2019, a new feature was announced for Maillot Jaune : Due to the 100th anniversary of the yellow jersey, the jersey will not look the same during the tour, as it did before, but will have a different motif every day:

Teams and drivers

In addition to the 18 automatically qualified WorldTeams with Arkéa-Samsic , Cofidis , Direct Énergie and Wanty-Groupe Gobert, the organizer ASO invited four UCI Professional Continental Teams . A total of 176 drivers started.

One of the starters was the overall winner of the 2018 Tour de France, Geraint Thomas , who, in the absence of his teammate Froome , shared the captain's role in his team Ineos with the young hopeful Egan Bernal . Last year's runner-up Tom Dumoulin declared that he would not start after a fall at the Giro d'Italia 2019 , as did last year's third and four-time overall winner Chris Froome after a serious accident at the Critérium du Dauphiné 2019. Last year's fourth Primož Roglič ( Team Jumbo-Visma ). He decided to skip the tour after a strenuous Giro d'Italia 2019 and is represented by last year's fifth Steven Kruijswijk as team captain. Ag2r La Mondiale is led by last year's sixth Romain Bardet , who was supported by the 2018 white jersey winner Pierre Latour , among others .

The sprinting strong drivers included the six-time winner of the green jersey and three-time world champion Peter Sagan ( Bora-hansgrohe ), Michael Matthews (Sunweb), last year's two-time stage winner Dylan Groenewegen (Jumbo-Visma) and Elia Viviani from Deceuninck-Quick- Step team, which also included the winner of the dotted jersey and two-time mountain stage winner , Julian Alaphilippe , and the second overall rider of the Vuelta a España 2018 , Enric Mas .

The tour begins at Königsplatz at the monastery church of Sint-Jacob op de Koudenberg / Saint-Jacques-sur-Coudenberg or Gottfried statue near the Royal Palace and Mont des Arts

The 106th Tour de France route was 3,366 kilometers long and divided into 21 stages, including two stages for the time trial (a team and an individual time trial ). The route led - counterclockwise - through the eastern and southern halves of France, with the first two stages taking place in Belgium and the third stage beginning in Belgium. With 27 climbs in the 2nd and 1st  category as well as the Hors Catégorie (HC), the route was considered very mountainous. The drivers had to cope with a total of 62 climbs , including five of the hardest category HC on four different mountains: the Vosges , the Massif Central , the Pyrenees and finally the Alps . The event comprised seven mountain stages, four of which have seven climbs that go at least 2,000 meters above sea level , with the roof of the tour being the Col de l'Iseran (2764 meters in altitude).

The tour was originally presented with a total of 3480 kilometers and comprised 65 climbs. Due to bad weather conditions, the route was shortened by a total of 114 kilometers in two stages ( stage 19 and stage 20 ) - three planned climbs were not climbed.

Grand Départ

The Grand Départ took place in Brussels for the second time since 1958 . The Belgian capital was both the start and finish point of the first stage and the venue for a team time trial on the second day. The Grand Départ commemorated the first Tour de France victory of Belgian cycling legend Eddy Merckx at the event 50 years earlier . At the Grand Départ, the climbs of the Mauer von Geraardsbergen and the Bosberg , which became famous thanks to the Tour of Flanders, are mastered .

Further route


After the team time trial in Brussels over 27.6 kilometers, the third stage started from the Belgian city of Binche to France to the city of Épernay in Champagne . The third stage led through the flat Belgian-French border area before it got hilly in the last quarter and ended with a slight ascent at the finish line. The tour then continued to Eastern France. While the fourth stage  - between Reims and Nancy  - was a flat stage, the fifth stage to Colmar led to the first ascent of the second category of the tour: the Côte du Haut-Kœnigsbourg . The crossing of the Vosges was continued the next day with a mountain stage from Mulhouse to Planche des Belles Filles , with the last ascent - with an average increase of 8.7% over a length of 7 km - with a gradient of 24% over the last kilometer . This was followed by a 230-kilometer flat stage , the longest stage of this tour, between Belfort and Chalon-sur-Saône . The second weekend became more difficult again with the crossing of the Beaujolais and the Massif Central: From Mâcon to Saint-Étienne , the hilly 8th stage was characterized by seven climbs. Sunday was a bit easier, but at the beginning of the stage the climb Mur d'Aurec-sur-Loire (a mountain classification of the 1st category) had to be overcome, at the end the field of drivers reached the town of Brioude  - the birthplace of Romain Bardet . Before the rest day there was a flat stage between Saint-Flour and Albi .

After the first day of rest, the Pyrenees were on the tour plan in the second week . Before reaching the Pyrenees, however, there was a flat stage between Albi and Toulouse . The high mountains were crossed in three mountain stages, which is supplemented with an individual time trial. The first stage of the Pyrenees , which starts from Toulouse, ended in Bagnères-de-Bigorre , crossing the Col de Peyresourde and Hourquette d'Ancizan passes . On July 19, the 100th anniversary of the yellow jersey, which was first given to Eugène Christophe , an individual time trial took place in and around Pau . This is followed by the second but short Pyrenees stage (117.5 km) between Tarbes and the Col du Tourmalet (with an average increase of 7.4% over a length of 19.0 km). For the third time in the history of the Tour of France (after 1974 and 2010 ) the Col du Tourmalet was a mountain arrival, where the souvenir Jacques Goddet was awarded. The total of the 15th stage and the third stage in the Pyrenees crossed an area that is well known for its Cathar castles . With a start from Limoux , the field of drivers had to conquer one climb in the 2nd category and three climbs in the 1st category, whereby the mountain finish from Prat d'Albis above Foix (with an average increase of 6.9% to 11.8 km Length) ended on the second day of rest.

View of the Col de l'Iseran

After the rest day, the 16th stage began and ended with a large loop in Nîmes . The next stage towards the Gap in Hautes-Alpes began with the Pont du Gard , which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site . Then came three Alpine stages with a total of six climbs that exceed the 2,000-meter mark. The first Alpine stage ran from Embrun on a long, 208-kilometer mountain stage to Valloire , on which three large mountain passes were conquered: the Col de Vars , Col d'Izoard and Col du Galibier . The second stage in the Alps between Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne and Tignes was significantly shorter: the field of riders had to climb the Col de l'Iseran - in addition to four planned climbs in the 3rd to 1st category, including the Montée de Tignes at an altitude of 2,089 meters Cross from the south side, the roof of the tour at 2,770 meters, which is why the souvenir Henri Desgrange was awarded there. The stage was canceled due to adverse weather conditions and the time intervals between the crossing of the Col de l'Iseran were counted - the Montée de Tignes could no longer be driven. Due to further weather forecasts, the last alpine stage was shortened and ended with the difficult mountain arrival at Val Thorens  - planned mountain ratings on the Cormet de Roselend and Côte de Longefoy were not crossed, the intermediate sprint was canceled.

The tour traditionally ended with the 21st stage on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris .

Stage coefficients and waiting period

The organizer assigns seven coefficients to the stages, which are important for the waiting period :

  • Coefficient 1: Stages without particular difficulty (1st, 4th, 7th, 11th, 16th, 17th, 21st stage) with a waiting period between 3% at a winning speed of less than 36 km / h and 11% at a winning speed over 50 km / h,
  • Coefficient 2: stages with slight difficulties (3rd, 5th, 9th, 10th stage) with a waiting period between 9% at a winning speed below 37 km / h and 11% at a winning speed above 41 km / h,
  • Coefficient 3: Stages on very rough terrain (8th, 12th stage) with a waiting period between 10% at a winning speed below 35 km / h and 20% at a winning speed above 44 km / h,
  • Coefficient 4: very difficult stages (6th, 15th, 18th stage) with a waiting period between 7% for a winning speed below 30 km / h and 18% for a winning speed above 40 km / h,
  • Coefficient 5: very difficult, short stages (14th, 19th, 20th stage) with a waiting period of between 10% at a winning speed below 29 km / h and 18% at a winning speed above 38 km / h,
  • Coefficient 6: Individual time trial with a waiting period of 25% of the time of the winner as well

Overall rating
The Colombian Egan Bernal from the Ineos team was the first to complete the 3,366 kilometers of the tour in 82 hours and 57 minutes. This was his first victory in a Grand Tour , it was also the first Colombian overall victory in the Tour de France. At 22 years and 196 days he was one of the youngest winners of the Tour, only the Frenchman Henri Cornet (19 years and 352 days; Tour de France 1904 ) and the Luxemburgish François Faber (22 years and 187 days; Tour de France 1909 ) younger. His British team-mate and last year's winner Geraint Thomas finished second, 1:11 minutes behind. The podium was completed by Steven Kruijswijk from the Jumbo-Visma team from the Netherlands, who was 1:31 minutes behind the winner and was two places better than last year.
The German Emanuel Buchmann from Bora-hansgrohe finished fourth, 1:56 minutes behind - the best Grand Tour position in his career to date. Fifth place went to the Frenchman Julian Alaphilippe from Deceuninck-Quick-Step , he wore the yellow jersey for a total of 14 stages. He was 4:05 minutes behind Egan Bernal. Behind Alaphilippe, the Spaniard Mikel Landa from the Movistar team followed in sixth place, 4:23 minutes behind. The Colombian Rigoberto Urán of EF Education First finished seventh, 5:15 minutes behind. His compatriot Nairo Quintana (+ 5:30 min on Bernal) from the Movistar team finished eighth overall. The Spaniard and world champion in the road race Alejandro Valverde from the Movistar team came in ninth place, 6:12 minutes behind Bernal. For Valverde it was already the 18th top ten placement in a Grand Tour. Frenchman Warren Barguil from Team Arkéa-Samsic was tenth , 7:32 minutes behind.
The tour was completed by 155 of 176 riders who had started, around 88% of the field. The best Swiss was Sébastien Reichenbach in 17th place (+ 44:29 min; Groupama-FDJ ), the best Austrian was Gregor Mühlberger in 25th place (+ 1:04:40 h; Bora-hansgrohe). Last in the overall ranking ( Lanterne Rouge , “red lantern”) was the Dutchman Sebastian Langeveld (EF Education First), who was 155th on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, 4 hours, 34 minutes and 23 seconds behind the overall leader.
Only very rarely in the history of the Tour de France have two riders from the same team achieved a double victory, which this year the Ineos team with Bernal and Geraint Thomas achieved. Nevertheless, the race was not characterized by a strong dominance of this team. Rather, the 2019 tour was unusually balanced: never before had there been just 91 seconds between the top three of a tour. Only 7:32 minutes were between the top 10. It was also unusual that the four first-placed drivers did not achieve a single stage win.
For the seventh time in his career, the Slovak Peter Sagan from Bora-hansgrohe won the green jersey of the leader of the points classification. Sagan collected 316 points with a stage win and other good placements in the intermediate sprints and stage goals and was ahead of the Australian Caleb Ewan ( Lotto Soudal , 248 points). Third in this classification was the Italian Elia Viviani from Deceuninck-Quick-Step with 224 points.
Mountain scoring
In the mountain classification , the Frenchman Romain Bardet from Ag2r La Mondiale won the dotted jersey for the first time. He got 86 points. He was followed by Egan Bernal with 78 points. Behind them, the Belgian Tim Wellens from Lotto Soudal finished third with 75 points and wore the dotted jersey at 16 stages.
