Tom Dumoulin should be Chris Froome's main rival as the Briton targets a record-equaling fifth title in the 2018 Tour de France, the route for which was unveiled Tuesday.There will be many challenges on the course, however, with 21.7 kilometers on cobbles on the ninth stage to Roubaix, where the Queen of the Classics, also known as the "Hell of the North" finishes each year.One of the trickiest stages might be the 17th from Bagneres de Luchon to Saint-Lary Soulan as it is only 65 kilometres long, making it very hard to control for the favorites.The race is likely to be decided in the 20th stage, a 31-km hilly individual time trial.
