The final decisive time trial of the 2010 Tour de France is currently underway (Saturday, July 24). Just eight seconds separate race leader Alberto Contador (Astana) and second-placed challenger Andy Schleck (Saxo Bank) in the overall classification.
Historically, Contador is by far the better rider against the clock – having won the final time trial in last year’s Tour to clinch the overall victory. But can Schleck put in the time trial ride of his life to make a last minute upset?
Cycling Weekly photographer Graham Watson is in the thick of the action, and relaying photos back to us as the riders pass. We’ll be posting up pictures when we received them.
Pre-stage favourite Fabian Cancellara (Saxo Bank) has the fastest time of the finishers at time of writing, with one hour and 56 seconds over the 52 kilometre course from Bordeaux to Pauillac.
