Tour de France 2022 Live for free: How to watch streaming online TV coverage

Jumbo-Visma Sport Director Frans Maassen has explained that Primoz Roglic abandoning the Tour de France was because he was “suffering a lot”.
Roglic took the decision to pull out of the race ahead of Stage 15 “to allow my injuries to heal” following a crash on Stage 5.

Speaking ahead of the Stage, Maassen described the difficulties Roglic was having and intimated that the decision came from above rather than from the rider himself.
He said: “I think Primoz is not feeling happy about the decision, and also the team.“It’s difficult, but we had a good talk on the bus and the morale was high.
“Last year, we were only for riders and we were still one of the best teams so we have confidence we can still go on high level and yeah, we are motivated for today.”
Roglic’s team-mate Jonas Vingegaard currently holds the yellow jersey thanks in part to support from the Slovenian in recent days.
However, the injuries he suffered earlier in the race appear to be taking their toll with Maassen even suggesting that Roglic had actually played down the seriousness of his condition.
“Yeah, I think so,” he said. “Because every time when he came into the bus, you saw him suffering a lot and that was not nice to see a big champion like that entering the bus after the stage.
“And also yesterday in the start, you saw Primoz was dropped in a group, and I thought he was maybe taking a bit easy. But he told me afterwards that he was really dropped and not feeling great and all day suffering and suffering a lot.
Asked if Roglic would be ready to take part at the Vuelta a Espana in August, Maassen was non-committal.
“Normally, yes, but it’s too early to make this decision now. First, he has to recover and then we make a new plan with him.”

Slovenian Tadej Pogacar bids to join Chris Froome as three-peat Tour de France champions in the last 27 years (not including the stripped Lance Armstong).

In 2020, Pogacar became at 21 the second-youngest winner in race history, after Henri Cornet in 1904, and the first man in more than 60 years to pedal in the yellow jersey for the first time on the final day of a Tour.

In 2021, Pogacar was more dominant, taking the lead on stage eight and holding it through the end of the Tour. He won by 5 minutes, 20 seconds, the largest gap since 2014.

Again, Team Jumbo-Visma should provide the biggest threat. That could be in the form of fellow Slovenian Primoz Roglic, who was second at the 2020 Tour, or Dane Jonas Vingegaard, who was second at the 2021 Tour.

Two faces of recent Tours will be absent. Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl left sprinter Mark Cavendish off the team, so he will miss a chance to break his tie with Eddy Merckx for the most career stage wins (34).

The team also omitted panache-filled Frenchman Julian Alaphilippe, who is still working his way back from major injuries suffered in an April crash.

Past Tour champions Geraint Thomas and Froome are also in the field.
