There might be no Marcel Kittel at this year’s Tour de France but the French Grand Tour can still boast a strong sprinting line-up this July. Peter Sagan (Tinkoff-Saxo) is targeting his fourth consecutive green jersey, while Mark Cavendish (Etixx-Quickstep) will be looking to regain his title as sprint-king and move himself into second in the all-time victory standings.
Sagan and Cavendish will be the favourites to don the green jersey come Paris but the recent rule changes mean that the competition will be hot.
