Tour de France 2021 today, stage 12: profile and route

Cavendish has four chances left to tie Merckx as the rider with the most stage wins on the Tour: 34-33 so far.


On the road book, Mark Cavendish has four chances left to tie Eddy Merckx as the rider with the most stage wins on the Tour. The Cannibal had 34, while the British had 33 ... for now. Today he will face the first of those four predictable volatas in Nîmes. Of course, it will not be for lack of faith in his squad, the Deceuninck. General Manager Pat Lefevere explained they will "by all means seek to have Cav equals or surpasses Merckx": "He is the best sprinter in Tour history, he deserves credit for his successes and for once again performing at an exceptional level with 36 years ".

With the best train in the peloton for arrivals at your disposal, it seems unlikely that you won't get wet at at least one of the four destinations: Nîmes, Carcassonne, Libourne and Paris. Before a man full of confidence and his squires, the Van Aert, Philipsen, Sagan, Colbrelli, Matthews or Bouhanni must be measured. Peter Sagan is immersed in the most discreet Tour of his career. In 2020 he did not achieve victories, but he fought for the green jersey with Sam Bennett almost until Paris. After a brilliant Giro (the points classification and a set were scored), physical problems weigh him down in France. Owner of seven green sweaters, he points out that in 2021 he will not be able to put it on either. Ninth gear of that general, at 123 points! by Mark Cavendish.
