2019 Critérium du Dauphiné stage 4 ITT 26.1 km Roanne

Wednesday 12 June - The 4th stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné is played out on a lumpy course of 26.1 kilometres. The ITT is an out-and-back race in Roanne. (anti-clockwise loop)

In terms of distance and profile, the hilly route is almost a carbon copy of the Tour de France ITT in Pau. That race will cover 27 kilometres on similar terrain. So this ITT is a perfect test.

The first 11.5 kilometres run uphill on rolling roads with shallow gradients. The intermediate time check is located at the highest point of the day, while the next 14.6 kilometres are more or less a mirror image of the first part of the race.
(forecast for blowy southerly winds but 20C)

first man off 13.15 CET (DData's Venter, I assume, as he's last on GC), TV from 15.00 CET

Wonder if Dumoulin will test his condition here.
Veni, Vidi, Ricky

The only question is how many minutes will Froome finish ahead of everyone.

I don't think he will win easily tomorrow. Kwiat and a few others could be quite near to him.

I don't know if he will or will not win easily but the chances or odds are on a easy win.

Froome's first TT since the TdF last year, Tommy D's bad knee, how will Yates, Pinot, Quintana etc do? The last 800 m of the climb might well catch a few out.

Very interesting in Tour perspective. No rest day before so Pino should be good.

Minutes?! Are you sure you didn't mean hours? :eek:

For this bike race to be a perfect build up to a great Tour, this ITT is important and a good performance is crucial for Tibopino. A top-10 would be great, beating Quintana and Yates would be good.

Dumoulin-Froome-Kwiat should top-5 and one of them wins it. Not so bold of a prediction.

Froome and Kwiatkowski to get 1st and 2nd.

The best of the GC riders will lose about 35 seconds to Froome.

Tailor made for Froome by the looks of it. Not sure that Dumoulin will push too hard and Dennis isn't riding I don't think. Be interesting to see how Porte, Fuglsang and Pinot go. Quintana and Bardet should leak some time.

I think that anyone that wants to win the Tour should lose less than 40s to Froome.

I can see Sky going 1/2/3 (and with a couple of others in the top 10) if everyone on the team will have freedom to ride for his own result, of their lineup only Stannard isn't a top time trialist.

Looks like a perfect test of form.
It has everything the riders need to assess their current condition.
Don't know about the weather, but judging by the previous stages it shouldn't make a huge difference. Even less in regard to the shape checkup.

Dumoulin said he'll go all out in the ITT.

It's about time... no wins so far this season.
But I doubt he can beat Froome with his knee problem.

He literally said "I'm not in good form, I want to win"

If the knee is bad, I doubt Dumo will even top 10.

And someone like Woods could lose 2 minutes to Froome.
