coincidence? i think not.

It’s no secret that this summer marks an important anniversary for three of the best Tours de France ever. It’s been 30 years since Greg LeMond eked out the closest Tour win in history on the final stage; 20 years since Lance Armstrong took the first of his now-redacted seven Tour wins; and 10 years since Alberto Contador overcame an Armstrong-led mutiny. In this year’s VeloNews Tour de France guide, we take you inside each of these races, with feature stories from journalists who were at each race: Rupert Guinness of the Sydney Morning Herald, Samuel Abt of The New York Times, and our very own Andrew Hood. Why did we choose reporters to recount these three Tours? Buried within the history of each race are important anecdotes about how the…

who will win the tour de france, and how? (be bold.)

FD: You asked for a bold choice, here is my bold answer: Egan Bernal. He is perhaps the best climber in the world, and this year's Tour is all about climbing. Bernal drops Froome, Thomas, and everyone else on the Tourmalet and never looks back. CC: Because he was forced to abandon the Giro due to injury, Tom Dumoulin has a golden opportunity to truly focus on the Tour. He’ll use his talent and the chip on his shoulder to stun Team Ineos, taking advantage of infighting in the British team to score the Netherlands’ first Tour win since 1980. AH: Adam Yates. It's time for a changing of the guard. With this year's mountainous profile, Froome won't have the TT advantage to take big gains. Father time is inevitable, and fortune…

depth of field

This means war The 2009 Tour de France was thrilling for many reasons, not least of which was the palpable tension between Astana teammates Lance Armstrong and Alberto Contador. On several occasions, the Spaniard defied his teammates wishes to eventually snatch overall victory from the “Boss.” Looking back, it becomes clear that each man’s career significantly changed after their battle for the ages. CAMERA DATA UNKNOWN In the following pages, we take a closer look at the 2009, 1999, and 1989 Tours, three of the most exciting and signficant Tours in the modern era. Each featured thrilling race action, and a whole lot more. From intra-team rivalry as in 2009, to icy tension between media and man as in 1999, to a nail-biting nish on the ChampsÉlysées in 1989, each of the three…

’09 the tour’s civil war

It was hours before the most important time trial of Alberto Contador’s young but promising career. Against expectations, it was the then 26-year-old Spaniard—and not his Astana teammate and returning superstar Lance Armstrong—who was defending the leader’s yellow jersey going into a difficult, potentially race-changing 40-kilometer time trial around Lake Annecy late in the 2009 Tour de France. During much of the previous two and a half weeks, Contador had single-handedly rewritten the script in what was supposed to be the latest chapter in Armstrong’s made-for-Hollywood story. The brash Texan—who had beaten back cancer, doubters of all shapes and sizes, and a peloton full of real and imagined rivals—was back from retirement after having won an unprecedented seven Tours de France in a row. Three years of sitting on the sidelines had…
