The potential favourites for the Leader’s Jerseys
10. June 2022









Which riders do you think are in pole position for one of the coveted leader’s jerseys? Here are our predictions.

Primeo Energie Leader Trikot

The field of cyclists with GC ambitions is rich this year. Fans can look forward to an intense and exciting battle. The well-balanced route allows different cyclists with different styles to aspire to the overall victory. According to our forecast, one of the following riders will wear the yellow jersey of Primeo Energie at the end of the Tour.

  • Sergio Higuita / Aleksandr Vlasov (BORA-hansgrohe)
  • Gino Mäder (Bahrain Victorious)
  • Jakob Fuglsang (Israel Premier Tech)
  • Remco Evenepoel (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl)
  • Geraint Thomas / Daniel Felipe Martinez (Ineos Grenadiers)

The German team BORA-hansgrohe is on a roll this season. Having already won the Tour of Valencia, the Tour of Catalonia and the Tour de Romandie they topped it all off a few days ago with their first Grand Tour win at the Giro d’Italia. At the Tour de Suisse they will start with their Tour de France leader.

INEOS Grenadiers starts with a team full of leaders. They have possibilities galore.

Remco Evenepoel has an incredible record in one-week tours, Fuglsang has been on the TdS podium twice and Gino Mäder is the Swiss hope. Sprint Jersey

Classic flat sprint stages are rare at the Tour de Suisse. This makes the sprint classification attractive for puncheurs like Benoit Cosnefroy or Michael Woods. One rider who has often fought for this jersey in the past is Peter Sagan. Again this year he will try to make his mark in the race. The following cyclists are in a good position to win the black sprint jersey.

  • Benoit Cosnefroy (AG2R Citroen)
  • Michael Valgren (EF Education-EasyPost)
  • Michael Woods (Israel Premier Tech)
  • Michael Matthews (BikeExchange-Jayco)
  • Peter Sagan (TotalEnergies)

#swisscyclingfamily KOM Jersey

Can Remco Evenepoel score points in the first stages with his fast finishing speed or will a classic mountain climber take the glory? It is quite possible this year that the KOM classification will be the same as the General Classification. We believe the following cyclists could be the best climbers to wear the #swisscyclingfamily KOM jersey.

  • Sergio Higuita / Aleksandr Vlasov (BORA-hansgrohe)
  • Gino Mäder (Bahrain Victorious)
  • Jakob Fuglsang (Israel Premier Tech)
  • Remco Evenepoel (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl)
  • Daniel Felipe Martinez (Ineos Grenadiers)
  • Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) Youth Jersey

Many riders looking for a place at the top of the General Classification are still under 25 and therefore also racing for the white jersey of the best young professional. These young riders are surely ones to watch in the fight for the white jersey presented by

  • Remco Evenepoel (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl)
  • Sergio Higuita (BORA-hansgrohe)
  • Tom Pidcock (INEOS Grenadiers)
  • Gino Mäder (Bahrain Victorious)
