It's the first Tour de France rest day at the time of writing, and while the riders take a brief chill pill we've had some time to take our eyes off the TV to compile a list of every rider with a Strava profile!
6 reasons to use Strava
Some or more active than others, and over the last week we've been able to find out which riders are more occasional Strava users and others who are uploading their data from the race stage-by-stage. We've also picked some of our top recommended follows...
They're usually pretty unwilling to share, yet Michal Kwiatkowski is one of the few Ineos riders who is fairly active on Strava, giving us power data with his uploads too. Stage 10 saw Kwiatkowski take plenty of KOMs, riding at an average of 290 watts for the stage.

Interestingly Thibaut Pinot didn't upload his ride from stage 10 when he lost a fair bit of time in the general classification... but worth a follow all the same!
William Bonnet (one upload from stage 7)
Matthieu Ladagnous (private profile)
Marc Soler (no uploads during the Tour)
Not much going on at the Astana camp on Strava, although Hugo Houle is giving us all the bells and whistles with power numbers from his rides. Yesterday's jaunt saw him cover stage 10 at 42.5km/h averaging 268 watts.
The boy wonder himself Wout van Aert has been documenting his first Tour de France on Strava daily, including his maiden stage win yesterday. Plenty of his teammates are also uploading regularly...

Success came quickly for CCC at this year’s Tour with Van Avermaet taking the Polka Dot Jersey on stage 1. He’s lost it now and has switched his attention to the rolling stages...

It wasn't just the best stage win of the Tour so far, it's also on Strava for the world to see! Breakaway specialist Thomas De Gendt covered the 204km with almost 4000 metres of elevation at an average speed of 39km/h, with a huge weighted average power of 343 watts for the whole ride.

Nils Politt and Rick Zabel are both worth following, but Alex Dowsett is the most interesting rider here, regularly uploading his power data.
Yoann Offredo isn’t afraid of a day in the break, but he’s been suffering badly after picking up a stomach bug. Head over to the Frenchman’s page and give him some kudos!

The big man Andre Greipel is a regular Strava uploader, and his split between time in the breakaways and near the front on sprint stages makes him a very good rider to keep an eye on. Akrea Samsic are the most prolific Strava users this year, with all riders except for Florian Vachon actively uploading most of their rides from this year's Tour.
