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 red lantern, starting around 12pm in the UK. Stage one time trial winner Yves Lampaert will start at 12:39, Tmie Trials champion and stage favorite Filippo Ganna at 13:05, while the yellow jersey will start at 16:00.

Follow all the action from level 20 below.
