Wout Van Aert fastest at final 2022 Tour de France time trial

Coming into the time trial Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) defended a 3:26 lead over defending Tour de France champion Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) and an 8:00 lead over 2018 Tour winner Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers).

No change on the top 3 GC podium places were expected baring crashes. Stage 20 wass a 40.7km individual time-trial, held between Lacapelle-Marival and Rocamadour.

Mikkel Bjerg (UAE Team Emirates) set the first fastest provisional time at the finish in Rocamadour, a remarkable time of 50m 22s.

A bike change for Swiss TT specialist Stefan Bissegger who crashed twice in the opening time trial, scuppered his chances of going faster.

Fillipo Ganna smashed Bjerg's provisional best time at the finish by a whopping 1m 41s. The defending World TT champion has clocked a time of 48m 41s. 

Mattia Cattaneo set the second fastest time +43s, and Jan Tratnik the third fastest +1m 5s on Ganna

Favorite Wout Van Aert went faster by 42 seconds over Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers) and 1m 22s over Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo).

GC favorites Geraint Thomas, Tadej Pogacar and Jonas Vingegaard put in good performances finishing in the top 3 places behind van Aert to secure their 3-2-1 podium places.

On Sunday, the cyclists will pedal into Paris, as the 2022 Tour de France will end on the iconic Avenue des Champs-Elysées.

Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) will take the Yellow and Polka Dot jerseys, Wout Van Aert the Green Sprinters Jersey and Tadej Pogacar the White Jersey.
