There will be no chance to recover after the toughest summit finish of the entire race as the riders will head straight into another key stage. Since he took over the reins, Christian Prudhomme has scaled down the amount of time trialling significantly, culminating at last year’s race which only had 13.8km of individual riding at the very start of the race. This year the amount has been increased significantly but the two time trials are far from being the flat power courses that have dominated the race in the past. While the second TT is almost a mountain time trial, the first individual test in stage 13 is definitely not flat either as two tough climbs during the 37.5km will make it a tough affair for the big specialists. Instead, it’s a perfect stage for versatile GC riders who can use their combination of power and climbing skills to deal their rivals in a relatively long stage that will turn out to be one of the most important of the entire race.

The 37.5km stage will bring the riders from Bourg-Saint-Andéol to La Caverne du Pont-D’Arc and will see the riders travel in a westerly direction for most of the day until they turn around in the final part of the course. Right from the start, the going gets tough as it’s straight onto the Cote de Bourg-Saint-Andéol which averages 4.9% over 6.9km. The first intermediate time is taken at the top and then the riders will get to the easiest section of the course. The next part is made up of long, straight, flat roads that lead to the second intermediate time check after 17.5km of racing. From here, the flat racing continues for a few more kilometres until the riders get to a relatively technical descent.

After the downhill section, the terrain again becomes flat but the road is a winding one as opposed to the log straights that characterized the first part of the race. The final time check will be taken after 28km and then the flat riding continues for another 6.2km. In the finale, the riders face a 3.3km climb that averages 4.9% and leads straight to the finish. It’s a winding road with numerous turns that ends with a 250m, 5.5m wide finishing straight.

In the past, the Tour de France time trials were mostly flat and suited to specialists but this one is very different. 10.2km of the 37.5km distance are uphill and this should allow the climbers to limit their losses. On the other hand, there are long flat straights in the first half where the big engines can really make a difference so the course is a great mix of a bit of everything. That makes it a great test for the difficult Rio time trial and it will be a big dress rehearsal for riders like Tony Martin and Tom Dumoulin who should both find the mixed course to their liking. They will battle it out for the stage win with the best time triallists among the GC riders and if he can return to his former TT level, it’s a course tailor-made for Chris Froome who can both deal his rivals a lethal blow and potentially win his second Tour time trial. However, riders like Thibaut Pinot, Alberto Contador and even Nairo Quintana have done great time trials on hilly courses and they should be able to do pretty well in one of the most important stages of the entire race.

La Caverne du Pont d’Arc hasn’t hosted a major bike race for more than a decade.

Dumoulin to win the stage. Froome to be good but not great. Quintana will be ***. I hope Yates, Bardet, and Aru go well.
 
I think Adam Yates and Dan Martin will both go surprisingly well here. Their teams will have them very well prepared for this.

Bardet, Meintjes and Barguil to be the big losers i think. Plus everyone on Cannondale of course.

I have to say, the TT has me biting my nails. So much stuff hapened today. What do you guys reckon for tomorrow?
 
1) Dumoulin
2) Froome +20"
2) Porte +30"
4) Van Garderen +1'
5) T.Martin +1'5"

Porte will depend how his knee and mind holds up. Above is assuming he is only sore. His mind should be better since they adjusted the times.
 
I expect Porte to be the best of GC guys. Froome hasn't really shown the mutant form of 2013 or even 15, and his TT ability nowadays is a decent sized question mark. If Quintana can limit his losses to around a one minute to Froome, he is still in the game. Otherwise, it is most likely over.

Stage winner will likely be Dumoulin, unless Froome goes full mutant 2013 style.

I'm afraid that Quintana might lose more than just a minute tomorrow. These crosswind stages have been difficult for him and I think that is the reason for his poor performance on Ventoux today as well. But I hope that he proves me wrong.

It's very likely he looses much more, but my hope is Froome hasn't found his 2013 TT level and is not as good as many think. In the mountains he definetely has been far below that level.

Mollema to crush all life on earth. :cool:
Ok, I have no idea how it's going to finish, my guess is that Quintana will probably loose about 1min to Froome.
