The list of conspicuously absent is elongated with the withdrawal of Tom Dumoulin and the withdrawal of Fernando Gaviria of the team UAE Emirates.
The Great Loop is not without surprise, since the French Julian Alaphilippe never ceases to amaze, the latter managed to win the yellow tunic. The steps the alps have had because of him, as the pair Thomas-Bernal, co-leaders of the team, Ineos was able to dethrone him from his place as leader.
