With just a few seconds between Richard Carapaz and Jonas Vingegaard, and similar between Ben O’Connor and Wilco Kelderman, the top 5 was all to play for in Stage 20’s individual time-trial. TT specialists Stefan Bisseger, Stefan Küng, and Wout van Aert aimed to get a stage win in their last opportunity but nobody could count out yellow jersey holder Tadej Pogačar from a repeat of his early TT performance. To a draw a dramatic close to this year’s yellow jersey battle, the organisers have thrown in a flat, 30.8km-long individual time trial on the penultimate day. The first 19 days could be considered mere build up to this one stage, the ultimate race of truth. For some, particularly the pure climbers, the advantages they’ve spent almost three weeks building could be wiped out in a painfully short amount of time, while for others this stage marks a fantastic opportunity to right previous wrongs and claw their way back onto the podium. Whoever ends the day in yellow will go on to crown themselves the overall winner of the 2021 Tour de France in Paris a day later. Subscribe to GCN+ for cycling as you have never seen it before!
