Stage 20

Saturday July 23 2022 - Lacapelle Marival to Rocamadour - 40 km ITT

The penultimate stage of the Tour de France 2022 is, once again, an individual time trial, but this one is almost a throwback to the huge distances of Tours of old with this 40km route. It is a real test of the legs for the big GC contenders after three weeks of racing, and huge amounts of time can be gained and lost here.

Performing well in a time trial at the end of the Tour always requires a certain kind of alchemy, deriving from a rider’s degree of freshness after three weeks of racing, the extent of their motivation given their possible finishing position in the overall classification and their intrinsic qualities in this solo discipline. Added to that, in 2022 there will be a final with two climbs on the way to the high point of Rocamadour.
