First one who will lead the peleton will be Martin. No.2 will be van Aert.
It will depend on multiple factors. I actually think it will not happen very often.

I imagine on stages without very big mountains but sophisticated finishes they'll try to keep Van Aert fresh for the final and use some of their weaker climbers earlier instead. Hell, even on pancake flat stages it makes sense to keep Van Aert fresh because his work will be more valuable when the pace rises in the final kilometers.

I wouldn't be surprised if he turns out to be climbing better than Kuss or Gesink early in the race and then he will not even be no.2 to lead the peloton on the hardest stages.
