The 2022 Tour de France moves to the hills of southern France today for the final stage of competition before tomorrow’s procession to Paris, with this Stage 20 individual time trial from the clifftop village of Rocamadour to Lacapelle-Marival, a small town known for its chateau.

The track is a 41km road that contains some bumps and gives some scope for time gains, but it would take some really dramatic things to see the podium positions shift now. Jonas Vingegaard is three minutes clear of reigning champion Tadej Pogacar on his way to his first Tour de France crown and realistically the Dane only needs to avoid a fall to secure the yellow jersey. Likewise, Geraint Thomas is three minutes clear of fourth, France’s David Gaudu, and will secure his third career podium at the Tour de France if he crosses the course safely.

The riders will start in reverse order, so Australian sprinter Caleb Ewan will be the first to contest this time trial as the bearer of the race Lantern Rouge, starting around 12pm in the UK. Stage 1 time trial winner Yves Lampaert starts at 12:39, time trial champion Filippo Ganna at 13:05, favorite Wout van Aert starts at 15:16 while the yellow jersey last starts at 16:00.

Follow all the action from level 20 below.

The fastest driver through the first checkpoint so far is Tadej Pogacar’s teammate Mikkel Bjerg, the 23-year-old Dane who has a great pedigree against time with junior world titles. He goes through at 12 minutes 37 seconds and no one is within half a minute of their mark.

Peter Sagan is the newest driver to come down the ramp.

Here is Yves Lampaert, QuickStep’s Belgian rider who won the time trial of stage one in Copenhagen. Will he attack this course and bet on the double? It doesn’t usually fare as well on longer stretches like this.

Fourteen riders are out on the road, and next up is Australian Jack Bauer. A few days ago he suffered this terrible fall in a collision with a press bike. Fortunately, he escaped serious injury.

The wind is blowing strongly, which could have a big impact on the result today. Yves Lampaert was perhaps a bit harshly said to have benefited from tailwinds when he won stage one in Copenhagen.

Filippo Ganna, the world time trial champion, is asked who will win today’s stage. “I think Wout will win,” he says with a grin, referring to the man in the green jersey, Wout van Aert, who has been sensational throughout the Tour. Van Aert finished second in the stage one time trial behind Yves Lampaert. I still make Ganna my favorite to this day when he’s feeling fresh. Not that anyone feels fresh at this stage.
