TOUR DE FRANCE STAGE 20 BETTING PREVIEW
At more than 40 km in length, the penultimate-stage time trial is the longest we’ve seen at the Tour since 2014.
Most of the time trial course is gently rolling in the direction of Rocamadour before the last 6 kilometres are more accidented.
It is the last opportunity to change the GC, even if the podium looks already set. Moreover, much of the attention will be on the Stage winner.
All eyes will be on the expected duel between Filippo Ganna and Wout Van Aert, currently the world’s best time trialists.
The two climbs are particularly steep, expecially the second one (the Cote de l'Hospitalet) which is 1.5 kilometres long and averages 7.8%.
The first climb - the Cote de Mages - is 1.6 kilometres long and averages 4.7%.
Stage 20 Favourites
Big time gaps can open up in a TT that long, but we expect world champion Filippo Ganna (Team Ineos) and Wout Van Aert (Team Jumbo-Visma) to fight for the stage win.
The two have dueled against each other on six occasions with Ganna turning out on top most of the time.
Anyway, in the first ITT of this year's edition, Van Aert finished 2nd behind his team-mate Yves Lampaert, while Ganna finished fourth (with Tadej Pogaçar in 3rd place).
That day Lampaert stunned the favorites and seize the first yellow jersey of this year’s race. The Belgian took advantage of better weather condtions as he rode on drier streets compared to his closest rivals.
Tadej Pogacar was just seven seconds behind Lampaert in Stage 1. The Slovenian is the best time trialist among GC contenders but it's almost impossible he can regain the Yellow Jersey since he has a 3'26" gap from the leader. Furthermore, he crashed on Thursday and consequences are unknown.
Jonas Vingegaard has performed exceptionally well in this year's Tour De France. He is not a pure time trialist but he will not finish too much distant from the specialists. The current Yellow Jersery finished just 10 seconds behind Van Aert in stage 1 and we all know that the gap between time-trialists and GC contenders is much thinner in the third week of a Grand Tour.
Geraint Thomas should be very close to Pogacar and slightly ahead of Vingegaard. Anyway, remaining energies at this stage of the tour are more important than previous results in ITT.
Given that Primoz Roglic abandoned the race before the start of the second week of racing, there are not any other GC contenders that could fight for a Top 3 placement.
The likes of Nairo Quintana, Bob Jungels and Alexandr Vlasov are good time trialists (the Russian in particular won the Time Trial at the Tour De Romandie in May) but a Top 10 finish is their maximum ambition.
Switzerland have two pure time-trialist - Stefan Kung and Stefan Bissegger - that should be in the mix.
Jonathan Castroviejo and Brandon McNulty will also do their best in this time trial as they will act as advisers for their captainst (Thomas and Pogacar respectively).
Maximilian Schachmann, Mads Pedersen, Mikkel Bjerg and Mattia Cattaneo are other riders that could finish in the Top 10.
