Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) bids to defend the title he snatched on the final competitive stage in 2020. The Slovenian stunned compatriot Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) on the Stage 20 individual time trial, allowing him to wear the yellow jersey into Paris.
Both riders will return but this time there is an extra threat: a rejuvenated Ineos Grenadiers. Ineos had a difficult 2020 Tour as Egan Bernal battled a back injury, leaving them without a serious GC challenger, but return with an imposing squad. Former champion Geraint Thomas and Richard Carapaz will share leadership duties, with Richie Porte and Tao Geoghegan Hart poised as super-domestiques.
Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck–QuickStep) is out to make an impression having worn yellow at the past two Tours - although not when it truly matters. Rigoberto Uran (EF Education-Nippo) and Miguel Angel Lopez (Movistar) also arrive with GC ambitions.
