La Movida : anuncio de la ruta del Tour de Francia 2022 Hombres y Mujeres
Echamos un primer vistazo a las diferentes etapas del Tour de Francia del próximo año que se anunciaron hoy en París y analizamos las dificultades y desafíos de la ruta.
El Tour 2022 Masculino comienza en Copenhague y permanece en Dinamarca durante las primeras 3 etapas, antes de viajar al norte de Francia.
La primera semana será principalmente llana pero muy estresante, especialmente con el regreso de los adoquines en la etapa 5.
En la etapa 7 tendremos la primera prueba real para los grandes favoritos con el final en La Planche des Belles Filles.
Luego es hacia los Alpes con el regreso de la famosa subida del Alpe d’Huez y de allí a los Pirineos con la tremenda subida de Hautacam.
La última gran prueba será la contrarreloj individual de 40 km del penúltimo día antes de que el pelotón entre finalmente en París.
En definitiva, un recorrido muy equilibrado pero bastante duro que sin duda lo ganará el ciclista más fuerte con un equipo muy sólido.
El Tour de Francia femenino está de vuelta y ya era hora.
Las 8 etapas serán disputadas por 22 equipos, y comenzará en París el 24 de julio del próximo año.
Después de algunas etapas llanas, la carrera abordará una etapa difícil sobre caminos de grava blanca, luego algunas etapas más onduladas antes de terminar con dos etapas de montaña reales en las montañas de los Vosgos, con un final muy duro y espectacular de la carrera en la famosa Planche des Belles Filles.
La gran pregunta: ¿Quién puede desafiar e intentar vencer a la gran favorita, Annemiek Vanvleuten?
Lo sabremos a finales de julio.
The Move: 2022 Tour de Femmes Course Preview
The Tour de France for women is back, and it was about time.
We had the chance to see this new course over 8 stages which will be contested by 22 teams, and what a nice competition it will be starting in Paris on the 24th of July next year.
After some flat stages, the race will tackle a difficult stage over white gravel roads, then some hillier stages before ending with two real mountain stages in the mountains of the Vosges, with a very hard and spectacular finish of the race on the famous Planche des Belles Filles.
The big question: Who can challenge and try to beat the big favorite, Annemiek Vanvleuten?
We will find out at the end of July.
TheMove: 2022 Tour de France Course Preview
We take a first glimpse at the different stages of next year’s Tour de France which were announced yesterday in Paris and analyze the difficulties and challenges of the route.
The Tour 2022 starts in Copenhagen and stays in Denmark for the first 3 stages, before traveling to the North of France. The first week will be mainly flat but very stressful, particularly with the return of the cobblestones on stage 5. On stage 7 we will have the first real test for the big favorites with the finish on La Planche des Belles Filles. Then it’s towards the Alps with the return of the famous climb of Alpe d’Huez and from there to the Pyrenees featuring the extremely hard climb of Hautacam.
The last big test will be the 40km long individual time trial on the second last day before the peloton finally enters into Paris.
In all, a very well balanced yet quite hard course which will be won undoubtedly by the strongest cyclist supporter by a very solid team.
THEMOVE: 2021 Giro di Lombardía
Today the monument classics end with the “race of the falling leaves”, the Giro di Lombardia.
We were privileged to watch a real cycling spectacle with a battle amongst almost all the big names in the international peloton.
With 35kms to go, double Tour de France winner Tadej Pogaçar attacked, and none of the other strongmen had a response to this attack.
Only the Italian Fausto Masnada was able to return to the wheel of the Slovenian rider on the descent of the last climb, but he was no rival for Pogaçar's in the final sprint.
Pogaçar thus ends the 2021 season, winning 2 monuments and the Tour de France, something that had not happened since 1972 with Eddy Merckx.
Listen to find out what's next for the season and THEMOVE crew.
Insight from those that have the t-shirt
Really insightful about the world of professional cycling, despite their history Lance and Johan come across well. Only complaint would be the ridiculous outrage from both about the French police and their raid on Bahrain victorious - both these guys are and always will be cheats of the highest order, and are responsible for the suspicion that modern cyclists are held in. Own your history gentlemen.
Feedback - there is noise reverb when Lance is speaking
Please fix the reverb
Johann has saved it
What was once a really informative podcast by Lance and George has become one long advert with a few minutes of cycling talk thrown in. As always some really good and interesting points but far too diluted. Lance is not quite as egotistical as I expected and can be quite funny at times and George is great. The follow up show with Johan Bruyneel is really informative with excellent in depth knowledge and a real feel for what is going on and what rides and teams are thinking as the race develops. If you only have time for one episode make it this one, although if you fast forwarded through the adverts and self promotion the original will only take 10 minutes of your time. I just wish that they would all remember that Lance didn’t win any TDF as he was found to be a cheat and a fraud.
