After an unpredictable opening three stages at Paris-Nice which have seen several GC contenders already shed significant time, the stage 4 time trial is set to provide another shakeup of the standings as the peloton tackle an undulating 13.4-kilometre course.

The Jumbo-Visma trio of Primož Roglič, race leader Christophe Laporte, and Wout van Aert will set off last as they lead the standings following their memorable opening day 1-2-3. The trio set off at 15:41, 15:43, and 15:45 CET.

Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal) and Rohan Dennis (Jumbo-Visma) are likely to lead the standings early on, setting off at 13:13 and 13:21 respectively.

A key portion of the day comes when João Almeida (UAE Team Emirates), Yves Lampaert (QuickStep-AlphaVinyl), and Stefan Küng (Groupama-FDJ) set off back-to-back from 14:43 to 14:46.

UAE Tour time trial winner Stefan Bissegger (EF Education-EasyPost) will be among the favourites to take the win here – he sets off at 15:07. Simon Yates (BikeExchange-Jayco), Adam Yates (Ineos Grenadiers), and Jack Haig (Bahrain Victorious) start their efforts in the 10 minutes after Bissegger.

The final 15 men will set off at two-minute intervals in contrast to the rest of the field at one-minute gaps. The Jumbo-Visma trio and Nairo Quintana (Arkéa-Samsic), and Aleksandr Vlasov (Bora-Hansgrohe) all set off at that late stage after 15:15.

Ben O'Connor (AG2R Citroën) is a late scratch from the start, the Australian a DNS from 11th overall on Wednesday due to flu, while defending champion Max Schachmann (Bora-Hansgrohe) is also out of the race with illness.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
