We asked the cyclists taking on the Tour this year what they enjoy the least, and what they most look forward to. Let us know your best and worst moments about the Tour in the comments!

Antwan Tolhoek:

Dislikes:I don’t like the last day. At first, we’re riding 20 kilometres an hour towards the local circuit. After that, it’s full gas.’

Likes: What I like about a grand tour is doing the best I can every day.

Dylan Groenewegen:

Dislikes: I don’t like the mountain stages and all the hard climbs. Also being away from home for such a long time is hard.

Likes: What I like the most is winning of course!

Amund Grondahl Jansen:

Dislikes I think the hardest thing is racing three weeks in a row.

Likes: Best thing will be if we get nice results as a team, and if we win one or more stages.

Paul Martens:

Dislikes: The hardest thing is that at one point, you’re so tired that you really are learning to know yourself. The good thing about that is that you can prove something to yourself by moving on.

Likes: Best thing is having success with the team, and that the race is over after finishing in Paris.

Steven Kruijswijk:

Dislikes: Hardest thing about a grand tour is being away from my family for such a long time.

Likes: Best thing is to give it my everything for three weeks straight. Physically and mentally.

Timo Roosen:

Dislikes: Team time trials are always very hard.

Likes: If we win!

Primoz Roglic:

Dislikes: Nothing is really easy to be honest.

Likes: Doing it for all the people there is really nice.

Robert Gesink:

Dislikes: Worst thing about the Tour de France is the bad coffee in French hotels.

Likes: Best thing about the Tour is the third week. Everyone is really tired and a lot can happen in the last week.
