Among the runners are Colombians Daniel Felipe Martínez (Ineos Grenadiers), Nairo Quintana (Arkéa Samsic) and Rigoberto Urán (EF Education-EasyPost).

Before taking his first pedal strokes on the asphalt, the boyacense cyclist made his first appearance in the first stage from the roller.
His team, Arkéa Samsic, uploaded a video of the Colombian cyclist warmed up and getting his legs ready to go out with everything to the race that opens the 2022 Tour de France. From early on, this day was quite complicated due to the heavy rain in the capital danish
