Critical time for the leaders of the Ineos Grenadiers in the Tour de France time trial – .


Richard Carapaz heads to the 27.2km Tour de France time trial on Wednesday from Changé to Laval as the best-placed Ineos Grenadiers rider in the overall standings, but with Geraint Thomas nearly 30 seconds behind the winner of last year Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates), both riders will seek to deliver exceptional performance.

Carapaz is currently third in the overall standings, 31 seconds behind the yellow and ahead of Pogačar and last year’s runner-up Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma). The winner of the 2019 Giro d’Italia entered the Tour as one of four possible cards for Ineos to play in the battle for the yellow jersey, but after the crashes and lost time that derailed Richie Porte and Tao Geoghegan Hart is the Ecuadorian rider who is currently at the top of the hierarchy within the British team.
