    The participants list of the Tour de France 2023 and the bib numbersThis Saturday sees the start of the Tour de France 2023 in Bilbao, in Spain's Basque Country.

    Having already discovered the route of the Tour de France 2023 in great detail on Open Street Maps and Google Earth, velowire.com now presents the list of starters for the 110th edition of the Grande Boucle.

    The list of Tour de France starters and their bib numbers

    The 176 starters of the Tour de France 2023 in 22 teams in statistics

    22 teams, each with 8 riders, will line up at the start of this edition of the Grande Boucle. Among them are 27 nationalities, of which France will be the most strongly represented, with 32 riders. Belgium (21), Spain and the Netherlands (14), Australia (12), Denmark (11) and Norway (8) follow. Australia is also at 8, while Italy is under-represented compared to usual, with 7 riders.Quinn Simmons (Lidl-Trek) is the youngest rider in the Tour de France 2023 at 22 years, 1 month and 23 days on start day, followed by Carlos Rodriguez (INEOS Grenadiers).
    The oldest rider will be Dries Devenyns (Soudal Quick-Step), who will celebrate his 40th birthday on the penultimate stage to Markstein. 36 riders will be taking part in the Tour de France for the very first time, including Jai Hindley (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Biniam Girmay (Intermarché-Circus-Wanty).

    12 riders will be representing their respective countries as national champions: Tadej Pogacar (Slovenia), Richard Carapaz (Ecuador), Valentin Madouas (France), Emanuel Buchmann (Germany), Mattias Skjelmose Jensen (Denmark), Esteban Chaves (Colombia), Fred Wright (UK), Dylan van Baarle (Netherlands), Alex Kirsch (Luxembourg), Alexey Lutsenko (Kazakhstan), Quinn Simmons (USA) and Gregor Mühlberger (Austria).
    Fabio Jakobsen is the 13th rider to wear a distinctive jersey before the start of the race, as European champion.

    What about the list of starters?

    Let's get straight to the list, starting with the team of outgoing Tour winner Jonas Vingegaard and his Jumbo-Visma team!


    Jumbo-Visma's team for this 110th Tour de France was strictly identical to the one that lined up in Copenhagen last year, with the exception of Dylan van Baarle, the Dutch team's new recruit this year, who replaces Primož Roglič who had made the Giro his number one priority and returned from Rome in the pink jersey!

    However, Steven Kruijswijk's terrible crash (fractured pelvis and collarbone) on stage 2 of the Critérium du Dauphiné put an end to his dream of returning to the Tour after last year's great success of his team. Wilco Kelderman replaced Kruijswijk in the Jumbo-Visma Dream Team.

    In the spirit of "you don't change a winning team", here are the riders of the Dutch Jumbo-Visma team:

    1/ Denmark Jonas Vingegaard
    2/ Belgium Tiesj Benoot
    3/ Netherlands Wilco Kelderman
    4/ United States of America Sepp Kuss
    5/ France Christophe Laporte
    6/ Belgium Wout van Aert
    7/ Netherlands Dylan van Baarle
    8/ Belgium Nathan van Hooydonck

    UAE Team Emirates

    Jonas Vingegaard's main rival is Tadej Pogačar at UAE Team Emirates, even if his injury doesn't seem to have completely resolved itself. His team has evolved a little since the last edition and is as follows:

    11/ Slovenia Tadej Pogačar
    12/ Denmark Mikkel Bjerg
    14/ Austria Felix Grossschartner
    15/ Norway Vegard Stake LŠngen
    16/ Poland Rafal Majka
    17/ Spain Marc Soler
    18/ Italy Matteo Trentin
    19/ Great Britain Adam Yates

    INEOS Grenadiers

    At INEOS Grenadiers, it's not Geraint Thomas who has been chosen to lead the British team, but Egan Bernal. The Colombian rider will have a compatriot and 3 Spanish team-mates at his side:

    21/ Colombia Egan Bernal
    22/ Spain Jonathan Castroviejo
    23/ Spain Omar Fraile
    24/ Poland Michal Kwiatkowski
    25/ Colombia Daniel Felipe Martinez
    26/ Great Britain Thomas Pidcock
    27/ Spain Carlos Rodriguez
    28/ Great Britain Ben Turner


    At Groupama-FDJ, the most talked-about topic was the non-selection ofArnaud Démare, who will be leaving the team at the end of the season, and the selection of Thibaut Pinot, who will also be leaving the team but to retire, and who showed good results at the Giro d'Italia. The team's undisputed leader, however, will be David Gaudu, so it's basically the same team as in 2022 that will be lining up at the start in Bilbao. The only last-minute change is that Michael Storer has been replaced by Lars van den Berg.

    31/ France David Gaudu
    32/ Luxembourg Kévin Geniets
    33/ Switzerland Stefan Küng
    34/ France Olivier Le Gac
    35/ France Valentin Madouas
    36/ France Quentin Pacher
    37/ France Thibaut Pinot
    38/ Netherlands Lars van den Berg

    EF Education-Easypost

    The Ecuadorian Richard Carapaz will lead the EF Education-Easypost team and he will be supported by a team that can make a strong impression: 41/ Ecuador Richard Carapaz 42/ Costa Rica Andrey Amador 43/ Italy Alberto Bettiol 44/ Colombia Esteban Chaves 45/ Denmark Magnus Cort Nielsen 46/ United States of America Neilson Powless 47/ Great Britain James Shaw 48/ Colombia Rigoberto Uran

    57/ Belgium Yves Lampaert
    58/ Denmark Michael Mørkøv

    Bahrain Victorious

    Mikel Landa will be the leader of the Bahrain Victorious team, but there will be no "1" bib in this team, as a tribute to Gino Mäder, who died during the Tour de Suisse, so Landa will start with bib 62.
