  1. 13:32:50 CEST

    We're just under half an hour from the start of today's stage. Yoann Offredo (Wanty-Groupe Gobert) will be first off.

  2. 13:33:46 CEST

    Riders will set off in one-minute increments until the final 35 men, who will have two minutes between them.

     

  3. 13:37:57 CEST

    Despite Rohan Dennis' mysterious abandon yesterday, there are plenty of contenders for the win today, some stronger than others of course.

     

  4. 13:41:22 CEST

    Geraint Thomas (Team Ineos) and Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) are the big favourites for the win, while riders such as the Deceuninck-QuickStep duo of Yves Lampaert and Kasper Asgreen, Richie Porte (Trek-Segafredo), Tony Martin (Jumbo-Visma) and Chad Haga (Team Sunweb) will be among the names there or thereabouts.

     

    There are plenty more strong time trialists at the race, though.

     

  5. 13:45:07 CEST

    Team Ineos

    Geraint Thomas – Third in the Tour’s final TT last year

    Michał Kwiatkowski – Former Polish TT champion, fourth at the World TT last season

    Jonathan Castroviejo – Reigning Spanish TT champion. Both he and Kwiatkoski could save their energy

    Egan Bernal – A good time trials considering his build, sixth at the Paris-Nice TT

    Gianni Moscon – A big engine, even if out of form so far this season

     

  6. 13:48:20 CEST

    Jumbo-Visma

    Wout Van Aert – The prodigy, current Belgian TT champion, dominated the Dauphiné TT

    Tony Martin – Four-time World TT champion, though perhaps not the same force he once was

    Steven Kruijswijk – Strong against the clock, finished fourth at the Dauphiné TT

     

  7. 13:50:28 CEST

    Deceuninck-QuickStep

    Yves Lampaert – Belgian TT champion in 2017, was strong in the discipline early this season

    Kasper Asgreen – Danish TT champ and former U23 European TT champion

    Julian Alaphilippe – top ten at the Dauphiné TT and will be super-motivated

     

  8. 13:52:05 CEST

    Bahrain-Merida

    Vincenzo Nibali – One of the stronger GC men in the time trial, though form is in question

    Jan Tratnik – Won the Tour de Romandie prologue

  9. 13:52:57 CEST

    Team Sunweb

    Chad Haga – A specialist, won the Giro TT in Verona

    Søren Kragh Andersen – An all-rounder, took top fives in the Tour de Suisse TTs

    Simon Yates – Also improved, winning the Paris-Nice TT

    Luke Durbridge – Australian champion, but could be on energy-saving duty

     

  11. 13:55:01 CEST

    Trek-Segafredo

    Richie Porte – Hasn’t put in a top-quality TT this season, but among the strongest GC riders in the discipline

    Bauke Mollema – Third in the mid-Giro TT, but might be saving energy to support Porte here

     

  12. 13:55:45 CEST

    Katusha-Alpecin

    Alex Dowsett – Reigning UK TT champion, though more of a top-ten threat here

  13. 13:57:05 CEST

    Groupama-FDJ

    Thibaut Pinot – Has improved a lot against the clock, but will look to limit losses against Thomas

    Stefan Küng – Swiss national champion, has collected TT top tens this season

     

  14. 13:57:33 CEST

    EF Education First

    Rigoberto Urán – One of the premier GC time trialists, though hasn’t raced one this season

    Tanel Kangert – Took fifth at the mid-Giro TT

     

  15. 13:58:01 CEST

    Selected others

    Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal) – On the podium at the Giro’s closing TT and is often in contention for the national title

    Max Schachmann (Bora-Hansgrohe) – Won the opening TT in País Vasco

    Pello Bilbao (Astana Pro Team) – Runner-up to Castroviejo in Spanish Championship, seventh in the closing Giro TT

    Nelson Oliveira (Movistar) – Four-time national champion, finished second at June’s European Games

     

  16. 14:00:22 CEST

    And with that, we're off! Offredo begins his effort.

     

  17. 14:01:38 CEST

    Martin, Asgreen, Langeveld, Haga and Dowsett all set off within the first ten minutes today.

     

  18. 14:02:16 CEST

    Martin is off at three minutes past the hour.

     

  19. 14:04:32 CEST

    There are three checkpoints on the 27.2km course today. One at 7.5km at Cériset, one at 15.5km at Coôate d'Equillot and one at 22km at Jurançon.

     

  20. 14:04:57 CEST

    Martin and Haga are off, so we should see some very quick times early on. Asgreen is up next.

     

  21. 14:06:00 CEST

    We'll (hopefully) have the top tens at every checkpoint today. As long as I can keep up with the times as they come in, at least.

     

  22. 14:07:50 CEST

    Asgreen is off. Dowsett will follow in a few minutes.

     

  23. 14:09:33 CEST

    It'll be intresting to see who comes out on top of these early runners – Asgreen, Martin, Haga and Dowsett.

     

  24. 14:17:53 CEST

    Martin is taking it very easy here.

     

  25. 14:17:55 CEST

    Martin is taking it very easy here.

     

  26. 14:18:46 CEST

    The German has done a ton of working during the Tour so far. He's been caught and passed by both Haga and Asgreen (who has also been on head-of-the-peloton duties a lot).

     

  27. 14:20:36 CEST

    Asgreen has been a phenomenon this season. He took second at Flanders, finished third at the Tour of California (including a sixth-place finish on Mount Baldy), won the Danish TT Championships and so far this Tour has been on the front constantly, keeping the break on a tight leash.

     

  28. 14:23:56 CEST

    Haga and Asgreen are fastest through the first checkpoint with times of 11:50, ten seconds up on Dowsett.

     

  29. 14:25:34 CEST

    Offredo passes the second check. He was 1:27 down after 7.7km though.

     

  30. 14:27:45 CEST

    Haga comes through soon after, 2:35 faster.

     

  31. 14:32:22 CEST

    Asgreen goes ten seconds faster than Haga at the second check.

     

  32. 14:33:17 CEST

    Dowsett has shed more time, meanwhile. He's 30 seconds down.

     

  33. 14:34:18 CEST

    Lampaert heads off in under a minute.

     

  34. 14:40:29 CEST

    Haga heads in to the finishing ramp.

     

  35. 14:41:19 CEST

    Haga crosses the line with a time of 36:22.

     

  36. 14:42:02 CEST

    And Asgreen promptly blows it away, 30 seconds faster.

     

  37. 14:45:54 CEST

    Alexis Gougeard (AG2R La Mondiale) has put in a fast time at the first check, 12:07.

     

  38. 14:46:44 CEST

    Dowsett crosses the line with a time of 36:32, third fastest so far.

     

  39. 14:47:37 CEST

    Stefan Küng (Groupama-FDJ) sets off in a few minutes. He'll put in a fast time today, no doubt.

     

  40. 14:48:08 CEST

    The television graphics showed Martin finishing over 12 minutes down but he actually finished 5:53 down on Asgreen.

     

  41. 14:51:03 CEST

    So far, the only riders within a minute of Asgreen at the third check and the finish are Haga and Dowsett.

     

  42. 14:53:42 CEST

    Steve Cummings crosses the line almost two minutes down.

     

  43. 14:54:16 CEST

    And the Australian time trial specialist is off!

     

    No, not that one. It's Aussie champion Luke Durbridge!

     

  44. 14:55:48 CEST

    Küng set off less than five minutes ago but he's hit the deck early on.

     

  45. 14:56:55 CEST

    Meanwhile, Yves Lampaert is 39 seconds down at the first check. He's not going all-out today.

     

  46. 14:59:47 CEST

    Nelson Oliveira sets off in three minutes.

     

  47. 15:01:28 CEST

    Despite his crash, Küng is about to catch his minute man, Luke Rowe.

     

  48. 15:06:49 CEST

    38:32 for Mathieu Ladagnous today, good for a top ten spot so far. He's a local lad from Pau.

     

  49. 15:09:21 CEST

    Durbridge passed the first check 50 seconds down on Haga.

     

  50. 15:10:04 CEST

    Anthony Perez of Cofidis has displaced Dowsett as third-fastest man at the second check.

     

  51. 15:11:02 CEST

    Woah, Matej Mohorič has gone one second faster than Asgreen and Haga at the first check!

     

  52. 15:14:08 CEST

    Lampaert finished eighth fastest.

     

  53. 15:15:03 CEST

    Perez falls to fourth at the third checkpoint, 50 seconds down.

     

  54. 15:15:29 CEST

    Damiano Caruso, who was strong at the Giro, sets off.

     

  55. 15:15:58 CEST

    Here's a shot of the fastest man so far, Kasper Asgreen, in action.

     

     

  56. 15:17:41 CEST

    Mountain classification leader Tim Wellens sets off.

     

  57. 15:19:14 CEST

    Nelson Oliveira is flying! 11:39 at the first checkpoint for the Portuguese Movistar rider.

     

  58. 15:23:03 CEST

    Simon Yates heads off.

     

  59. 15:26:12 CEST

    Oliveira is fastest at the second checkpoint too, four seconds up on Asgreen.

     

  60. 15:27:44 CEST

    Nils Politt, Jan Tratnik and Wout Van Aert start in the next five minutes.

     

    Thomas De Gendt, Gianni Moscon and Søren Kragh Andersen follow shortly after.

     

  61. 15:28:50 CEST

    Küng, who crashed earlier, takes fourth at the finish with a time of 36:50.

     

  62. 15:30:22 CEST

    Van Aert heads off now. He's the big favourite for the win along with Thomas today.

     

  63. 15:33:08 CEST

    CCC's Joey Rosskopf goes third fastest at the first check.

     

  64. 15:34:14 CEST

    De Gendt, Kragh Andersen and Moscon are the next three men off.

     

  65. 15:34:46 CEST

    Mohorič finished 52 seconds down at the finish, in fourth place provisionally.

     

  66. 15:36:45 CEST

    Oliveira is fading through his effort, he's six seconds down at the third check.

     

  67. 15:39:08 CEST

    Oliveira crosses the line. It's a great ride from the Portuguese rider but he falls just short. His time is 36:03, 11 seconds down.

     

  68. 15:41:05 CEST

    Ineos man Jonathan Castroviejo sets off. He's the Spanish TT champion.

     

  69. 15:42:36 CEST

    22:33 for Rosskopf at the second checkpoint. That's the fastest time so far.

     

  70. 15:43:16 CEST

    Tratnik is second fastest at the first check, with a time of 11:44.

     

  71. 15:43:39 CEST

    11:33 at the first check for Van Aert! He's quickest in Cériset.

     

  72. 15:46:23 CEST

    De Gendt is even faster. 11:28 for him.

     

  73. 15:47:36 CEST

    Here's a shot of the second-fastest man so far, Nelson Oliveira.

     

     

  74. 15:49:28 CEST

    Rosskopf goes second at the third check, one second down on Asgreen. Meanwhile, Peter Sagan sets off.

     

  75. 15:52:45 CEST

    Tratnik goes fourth fastest at the second checkpoint. 

     

  76. 15:53:37 CEST

    Van Aert sets a time of 22:28 shortly after. He's fastest at the second check.

     

  77. 15:54:09 CEST

    Michał Kwiatkowski sets off. He probably won't be allowed to go all-out here.

     

  78. 15:55:01 CEST

    Rosskopf comes to the finish. He lost time in the final part of the course and takes second in Pau with a time of 36:01.

     

  79. 15:56:19 CEST

    Thomas De Gendt is crushing it so far, wow. He's 16 seconds up on Van Aert at the second checkpoint.

     

  80. 15:59:29 CEST

    Dylan Teuns, stage winner on La Planche des Belles Filles, sets off.

    Van Aert sets the fastest time at the third check, 29:12.

    2014 Tour winner Vincenzo Nibali sets off.

     

  85. 16:04:26 CEST

    Politt sets a time of 36:25 to go fifth at the finish.

     

  86. 16:05:12 CEST

    Meanwhile, De Gendt is fastets at the third check! 11 seconds up on Van Aert.

     

  87. 16:05:58 CEST

    Van Aert has crashed! He hits the barrier on the inside of a corner. It looks bad. He's still on the ground.

     

  88. 16:06:24 CEST

    Race radio says an ambulance has been called for Van Aert.

     

  89. 16:07:05 CEST

    He's still on the ground. His thigh looks exposed, with his shorts cut open on the barrier.

     

  90. 16:07:38 CEST

    Tratnik takes fourth at the finish.

     

  91. 16:08:33 CEST

    It's probably the end of Van Aert's Tour de France.

     

  92. 16:09:31 CEST

    De Gendt is fastest at the finish! His time is 35:36.

     

  93. 16:14:23 CEST

    Van Aert is still on the floor on the inside of the corner. He's being tended to by a medical team.

     

  94. 16:18:25 CEST

    No big names passing through time checks right now. De Gendt still leads at every point of the stage.

     

  95. 16:20:43 CEST

    30 riders left to start now. They're all at two-minute intervals.

     

  96. 16:24:33 CEST

    Max Schachmann is fast at the second check. He's 21 seconds down on De Gendt.

     

  97. 16:27:15 CEST

    An ambulance just made it's way through the finish line. It's carrying Van Aert, no doubt.

     

  98. 16:28:10 CEST

    Greg Van Avermaet is the next rider off.

     

  99. 16:28:56 CEST

    Here's a shot of Van Aert from earlier on. He was on course to set one of the fastest times so far before his crash.

     

     

  100. 16:33:04 CEST

    Schachmann takes fifth at the third checkpoint.

     

  101. 16:33:47 CEST

    Fabio Aru sets off.

     

  102. 16:36:30 CEST

    Here's a look at Thomas De Gendt during his effort. He's the fastest man so far.

     

     

  103. 16:37:01 CEST

    Gaudu, Mollema, Landa and Porte are the next men to start.

     

  104. 16:39:21 CEST

    Schachmann is heading to the final very slowly. It looks like he's crashed.

     

  105. 16:40:39 CEST

    Still no riders have been troubling the top of the standings at any of the checkpoints.

     

  106. 16:41:19 CEST

    Schachmann has a cut to his right knee and he's grimacing. He's really struggling his way up the climb to the finish.

     

  107. 16:42:42 CEST

    Schachmann finishes over five minutes down.

     

  108. 16:43:30 CEST

    But hey, at least Peter Sagan was having fun out there today. He's 2:57 down on current leader De Gendt at the finish.

     

     

  109. 16:48:11 CEST

    Romain Bardet sets off in five minutes. He's starting on a road bike equipped with a disc wheel and full TT bars (no clip-ons), and will reportedly switch to a TT bike after 10km of the stage.

     

  110. 16:48:35 CEST

    Fabio Aru is 12th at the first check, 26 seconds down.

    Bauke Mollema sets a time of 11:38 at the first check, fourth fastest.

     

  114. 16:54:02 CEST

    Bardet sets off and yep, he's on a road bike.

     

  115. 16:55:37 CEST

    Landa loses 22 seconds at the first checkpoint.

     

  116. 16:56:23 CEST

    Porte is one second down on De Gendt at the first check.

  125. 17:09:59 CEST

  126. 17:11:28 CEST

    Former yellow and white jersey wearer Giulio Ciccone finished 4:40 down on De Gendt today.

     

    He tells Cyclingnews that he’s really struggling after hurting his knee in the crash. He can’t push his leg and so its causing problems in his back, despite trying different treatments. He hoped today would be a recovery day but he’s pessimistic about carrying on in the Tour.

     

  127. 17:11:51 CEST

    Aru crosses the line 12th, a nice time for him.

     

  128. 17:12:08 CEST

    Urán sets a time of 11:31 at the first checkpoint.

     

  129. 17:14:21 CEST

    Schachmann left the race in an ambulance after the finish. We'll see if he continues the Tour tomorrow or not.

     

  130. 17:15:03 CEST

    A great time for Pinot at the first check – he goes fourth, three seconds down.

     

    Meanwhile, Porte is second at the third check.

     

  131. 17:16:16 CEST

    Bernal sets off. Just Thomas and Alaphilippe remain.

     

  132. 17:18:02 CEST

    Bardet changes bike and it's not exactly a speedy switchover... He stood waiting for maybe 10 seconds while the AG2R car stopped and the mechanic fetched the TT bike.

     

  133. 17:18:43 CEST

    Landa comes to the finish. He's had a decent TT, for him. 1:09 down in 13th place.
