2022 Tour De France Cycling Race

There are 22 teams each year, each with a maximum of nine riders, so the Tour de France has up to 198 riders. The start of the race is called the Grand Depart and will start in several places, mainly outside France. Although the exact number is unknown, it is estimated that about 12 million people will usually watch the race. They stand on the side of the road or wherever they find a place to look. There are no tickets, and the event is free to find a home.

Of course, the Tour de France has a significant advantage over the other two big tours: everyone has it above all else.

It's like a holiday in Italy, eating great food, meeting great people, enjoying the great weather, and then ALWAYS EARNING on a gondola ride on Venice's central canal. Sometimes people can't help themselves. And yes, gondolas and canals are incredible for anyone who has never been to Venice in Las Vegas before. But perspective, people! However, I believe that it is good to play with this dynamic. Some people in the industry spent a lot of time in June and in May and maybe in April, March, and February to find the right equipment for the upcoming Tour, knowing that the race was now part of a marginal victory.

Or at least teams. Believe it, and if they believe it, then maybe we should all because that's what will happen. However, like the gondola that runs along the canal, they are not crazy. I could have said yes, but we were watching as the one-minute lead swung over the one-minute deficit in last year's penultimate ITT.

And this is the third time in four years that the final verdict has been dropped. That's why teams have the right to worry about marginal victories because they're so important, or they're so crucial because teams are so afraid of them—the same day. Let us see what the Tour de France has in store for 2022. Only time will tell.
