I am writing this page to focus on the Tour de France 2023’s Teams Riders and Bikes.
The selection of the 22 teams has been officially announced at the beginning of January 2023.
22 Teams of 8 Riders
The peloton of the 110th edition of the Tour de France counts in its ranks 22 teams starting from the Basque Country on July 1st and ending in Paris on July 23rd, 2023.
18 UCI WorldTeams and 4 UCI ProTeams, including the first participation for one of them.
The Uno-X Pro Cycling Team from Norway’s participation in the Tour de France is the first time for the team but also for a Norwegian team.
Norwegian fans will be cheering on the side of the roads for their National compatriots.
Despite the discontinuation of the French professional team B&B Hotels – KTM, there is still an impressive number of five French teams racing the Tour de France 2023.
Four teams are from Belgium, two teams from the Netherlands, two teams from the USA, then one team from each of the following countries; Australia, United Arab United, Bahrain, Great Britain, Germany, Spain, Kazakhstan, Israel, and Norway.
The Uno-X Pro Cycling Team replaces the B&B Hotels – KTM team compared with the Tour de France 2022.
The 21 other teams are the same as last year’s edition.
An Exciting Tour 2023
The Tour de France 2023 is expected to be a very exciting edition with the Pogacar Versus Vingegaard battle for the yellow jersey (Maillot Jaune) to continue.
But some underdogs could join the battle for the General Classification making Le Tour even more exciting.
To add more for the spectator’s enjoyment, the 2023 edition of the Tour de France features eight mountain stages climbing across the Pyrenees, the Massif-Central, the Alps, and the Vosges.
Then there are six rolling hills for the punchers, six other flat stages where the Sprinters have the opportunities to shine, and one individual Time-Trial stage of 22km in the Alps.
The penultimate stage is a 133km stage with several Cols to keep the suspense until the last day, or at least until the day before the arrival on the Champs-Elysees.
I will not bore you by repeating the content that is already available on the official website of Le tour. For more details on the Tour de France 2023’s three weeks course please check LeTour.
