The stage 20 individual time trial shook up the GC rankings one more time before Paris.

Tom Dumoulin, the current world champion in the time trial, was riding in second to start the day— but with over two minutes to make up on yellow jersey Geraint Thomas, his chances of assuming the lead were slim. The contest for third was a little more hotly contested; Primoz Roglic had edged Chris Froome off the podium with his stellar stage 19 win, but with less than a minute to spare on the defending Tour champion, his lead seemed tenuous.

In the end it was Froome who turned in the second-fastest time of the day (just one second off the pace of Dumoulin) which was enough reclaim his third-place spot on the podium. Dumoulin will come second in the GC, and Thomas will be crowned Tour de France champion tomorrow in Paris.

Peter Sagan will have the green jersey, Julian Alaphillipe will win the king of the mountains, and Dan Martin will win most combative. And Lawson Craddock defied all odds, finishing the entire, brutal tour after breaking his scapula in stage 1.
