Pre Race Build Up / Team Presentation
Stage 1 - Dusseldorf TT
The 2017 Tour de France kicked off with a wet individual time trial in the centre of Dusseldorf. With the roads being slippy and wet, it was a nervous start to the Tour for the riders.
Stage 2 - Dusseldorf Depart
After the Stage 1 Time Trial had been completed, it was time for the real racing to begin. A flat stage awaited the riders after the start in Dusseldorf. For Team Sky's Geraint Thomas, a special day in the yellow jersey awaits.
