Le Tour – Stage 19

Tour de FranceBonneval to Chartres

Distance: 53.5 kilometers.

The final individual time trial of the Tour, and not much of an opportunity to catch Bradley Wiggins, as he is very good at these and will probably increase his lead as a result.

Bradley Wiggins won the stage in convincing fashion, and Christopher Froome proved that he could have taken over if Wiggins had faltered. A very good Tour for Sky as it looks as if there will be a Briton atop the podium in Paris for the first time.
