The first and shortest of the two ITT’s on the route takes us 14km around Dusseldorf and as we can see from the profile it is essentially a flat course. It is well beyond Prologue distance and on a technical course mainly along the Rhine could see some gaps opening up.

Tony Martin is understandably the favourite to win the first stage of this year's Tour De France. The 31-year-old German was beaten to the yellow jersey by Rohan Dennis when the 2015 race opened with a similar type of course in the Netherlands, but there is no Dennis this time around. The 4-time Tour De France Time-Trial winner will have extra motivation to push for the win as he is German.

Primoz Roglic is Tony Martin's main contender. The Slovenian has already won 4 time trials in 2017 and is coming off the back of a 7.5km prologue win in the Ster ZLM Toer in early June. Furthermore, he won the ITT at the Tour de Romandie over 18.3 km earlier this season, finishing 8 seconds ahead of Richie Porte and he also won the ITT at Vuelta al Pais Vasco over 27.7 km.

LottoNL Jumbo team can count also on Jos Van Emden, a specialist who won Stage 21 of this year’s Giro d'Italia - an ITT over 29.3km ahead of Tom Dumoulin - and he was runner up to Rohan Dennis over 10.5 km in this year’s Tirreno-Adriatico.

Stefan Kung is the no.4 in the betting. The Swiss champion was runner up to Rohan Dennis over 28.6km and the opening prologue over 6km in the Tour de Suisse ITT and he won the first ITT at this year’s Tirreno-Adriatico over 22.7km. He destroyed the field in the recent Swiss TT Nationals, winning by a massive 57 seconds.

Steve Cummings was extremely impressive in the British National Championships in recent times. Returning from injury, the 37-year old completed a time trial & road race double. He finished 10th in the opening 2015 Tour time trial (13.8km) in a field that contained Dennis, Martin, Cancellara & Dumoulin.

Jonathan Castroviejo has a decent ITT pedigree but he tends to produce his best results on longer rolling courses.

His team-mate Jasha Sütterlin ws narrowly beaten by Tony Martin in the German ITT Nationals recently and could be a smart long-shot option.

Vasil Kiryienka won the World ITT title in 2015 and was second in 2016 so he knows how to ride versus the clock. He showed decent ITT form at the Giro and his style is very suited for this course.

Among the GC contenders, Richie Porte should be the fastest rider on Stage 1. He won the ITT at the recent Dauphine beating a number of the names above mentioned. The course was hillier and longer, but we don't expect the Australian too far away from the podium.

Michael Kwiatkowski, Fabio Felline, Marcel Kittel, Geraint Thomas and Maciej Bodnar have few chances to make the top 3.
