Aussies on Tour – The six Australians flying the flag at the 2024 Tour de France

The 2024 Tour de France will see the number of Australians on the start line halved from last year’s bumper crop but forget any notion that this means the nation will fade into the background at the biggest race on the calendar.

Among the six Australian riders at the Tour, there is plenty of potential for them to be highly visible at crucial junctures, both in the mountains, on the flat and in between. A number are entering the race in crucial support roles though many things can happen over 21 days so it isn’t out of the question that those roles could evolve.

His last two stage races, the Tour of the Alps and Critérium du Dauphiné, have been cut short by crashes so he may be a little shorter on racing than he expected to be coming into the Tour de France but at least has had the time to recover and line up in Florence.
