Wout van Aert took his second stage win in the Tour de France in the twentieth stage. The Belgian cyclist of Jumbo-Visma was the best in the individual time trial over 30.8 kilometers between Libourne and Saint-Émilion. Yellow jersey wearer Tadej Pogacar finished eighth and almost secured his second overall victory in the Tour, with only the traditional final stage to Paris ahead of him.
Van Aerts Danish teammate Jonas Vingegaard also rode a good time trial. He narrowed his gap to Pogacar and secured his second place overall by extending his lead over number three Richard Carapaz to almost two minutes.
Van Aert previously won the eleventh stage to Malaucène with two climbs of Mont Ventoux. The Belgian, who also has his sights set on the Olympic time trial title in Tokyo, gave his team the third stage victory. His American teammate Sepp Kuss also won a stage.
Dutch rider Wilco Kelderman finished 27th in the time trial. The Bora-hansgrohe leader did not gain enough time to expel Ben O’Connor from fourth place in the general classification. Kelderman is eleven seconds behind the Australian rider.
