EF had a tailor-made roster for this TTT- every rider in the team was at least a decent climber and a decent TT-er, which is invaluable on such route. Deceuninck and Ineos brought some weaker riders so they were no match for the American team in these circumstances.

EF took part in 3 TTs this season (here, Colombian nationals and Etoile de Bessèges) and won all of them.

The GC is not over, though, I can easily imagine Bernal getting 50 seconds back on the last stage or Alaphilippe to make a daring attack and gain time somewher.

I am one of the few who enjoy TTT's BUT the course needs to be more selective - Maybe altitude will affect the racing.
If EF didn't have Martinez and Higuita, who are in-form and good at altitude then maybe we'd have something to look forward to. Seems like GC is realistically over already.

The summit finishes of 2018 and 2019 didn't create gaps enough for a rider to make up 46 seconds, and this one isn't as hard as Alto de las Palmas last year (where the top four were 16 seconds apart).
