• 109th edition kicks off in Copenhagen on July 1st 
• UAE Team Emirates striving for third consecutive victory 
• UAE Team Emirates talisman Tadej Pogacar ready after an impressive victory in the Tour of Slovenia 
 
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Friday, 24th June 2022. The Tour De France – the world's most famous cycling race – will soon be kicking off once again as the world's eyes turn towards the Emirati cycling team, UAE Team Emirates, as they aim to win a third consecutive Tour de France. 
 
On Friday July 1st, the world's greatest riders will take to the saddle for Stage 1 of the 21 Stage race. A 13.2km time trial will get the 109th edition of the Tour De France underway, before the riders eventually roll into the mountains and push their bodies and physical capabilities to the absolute limit. 
 
The team to beat are UAE Team Emirates. The man to beat is Tadej Pogacar. The Slovenian superstar is gunning for his third Tour De France victory in as many years, a feat that has only been matched by cycling greats such as Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Miguel Indurain, and Chris Froome. 
 
As Pogacar's focus will be cementing himself amongst Cycling immortality, he will be ably supported by a UAE Team Emirates group hot from their incredible win in the Tour of Slovenia. After winning 4 of the 5 stages in the race, there can be no doubt that the morale is high within the camp ahead of ‘Le Grand Boucles'. 
 
The Tour De France leaves no stone unturned in its quest for determining the victor - with wind, cobbles, sprints, echelons, big climbs, small climbs, and time trials all awaiting the riders and their support teams. 
 
Ever famed for its mind-boggling climbs and ascents, the Tour De France enters the Alps at the beginning of week two. This is earmarked as an incredibly exciting period of the race, as we will start to see the formation of the General Classification (GC), as well as the Polka Dot Jersey (climbers jersey) starting to become hotly contested. 
 
As the race enters week 3, the riders will see themselves tackling the Pyrenees Mountain range. This phase of the race will be the most challenging and testing for the riders, as the mountains come thick and fast with very little margin for error. Cycling fans around the world will be tuning in specifically to stages 16 through 18, renowned for their difficulty and brutality as the cyclists exert every last ounce of energy and channel it up the unforgiving mountain range.
One stage in particular to pay close attention to is stage 12; Briancon to Alpe D'huez, which happens to also fall on Bastille Day in France. One can be sure to see French riders battling fiercely in the hope of securing a memorable and widely celebrated victory on France's national day. 
 
Tadej Pogacar said: “As a team, we are focused, and we are ready. We are really close as a group and have complete confidence in each other's abilities. Our preparation has been excellent and I'm feeling in really good condition, I can't wait to get started.” 
 
Team CEO, Mauro Gianetti said: “When we first started this team in 2017, we had an ambitious five-year plan to win the Tour de France and cement ourselves as one of the top teams on the World Tour. We stand here today having won it twice already and in a good position to be competitive once again – which is a fantastic feat. The team, the staff and our partners should be very proud of how far we've come in such a short space of time. This wouldn't have been possible without the support of the UAE, and we'll be doing all we can to make our fans in the UAE proud.”
