With the ultimate day of the race often uneventful till the ultimate dash on the Champs Elysees, the stage 20 time trial marked the final severe check after almost three exhausting weeks.
Given Pogacar’s large benefit at the beginning, it was at all times unlikely somebody would be capable to knock the 22-year-old Slovenian off his perch.
As Wout van Aert claimed the 30.8-kilometer (19.1-mile) stage from Libourne to Saint-Emilion, Pogacar performed it protected and completed eighth. He’ll carry an unsurmountable lead of 5 minutes, 20 seconds into the ultimate day, a 108.4-kilometer (67.3-mile) stage from Chatou to Paris.
Pogacar gained his first title final September when he turned the Tour’s youngest champion in 116 years.
