The final competitive stage of the 2022 Tour de France is here, with two-time defending champion Tadej Pogacar needing basically a miracle to catch the leader in Jonas Vingegaard in the last of the two time trials of this year’s Tour that bookend the event.
If Vingegaard doesn’t fall off the bike, he’s likely fine during the 40.7 km Race of Truth on Saturday. He holds a 3:26 advantage over Pogacar, and with the riders heading to Paris and the Champs-Elysees on Sunday in what should be a mostly ceremonial coronation for the Danish victor, it’s all but over for the final maillot jaune.
But Wout van Aert will look to win yet another stage in this year’s tour, as the Jumbo - Visma teammate of Vingegaard continues his impressive Tour as the elite sprinter in the world.
