Full list of starters for Thursday's crucial Tour de France mountain time trial

The 2016 Tour de France hits one of its most crucial stages of the entire race on Thursday, stage 18’s 17-kilometre mountain time trial.

The majority of riders start off at two-minute intervals, with the final 15 riders – the top 15 in the general classification – off at three-minute intervals.

Overall race leader Chris Froome (Sky) is the last man off at 4.59pm local time (3.59pm UK time).

A total of 177 riders are scheduled to start. Although listed, Fabian Cancellara (Trek-Segafredo) will not start as he leaves the Tour to prepare for the Olympics. Shane Archbold (Bora-Argon18) has also withdrawn after breaking his pelvis in a crash on stage 17.
