Tour de France stage 16 as it happened: Jonas Vingegaard and Tadej Pogačar do battle against the clock

Join us for blow-by-blow updates from the only individual time trial at this year's Tour de France

The second rest day has passed and we're back into the action at the Tour de France. Today, it's an individual time trial - the only one of this year's race - and the stage is set for a GC showdown between Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) and Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates). 

10 seconds separate the duo ahead of the day, with the Dane in command of the yellow jersey. Can Pogačar finally topple him? Join me, Tom Davidson, for live updates as we find out.

Ahead of today's stage start at 12:05 (BST), let's take a look at what's in store for the riders. 

The French Alps play host to a tough, uphill time trial between the communes of Passy and Combloux. At only 22.4km in length, it's a short race against the clock, but the final kicker to the line (2.5km at 9.4%) will certainly slow the riders down.

There have been rumours of planned bike changes before the Côte de Domancy, with some expected to change their time trial steeds for road bikes, so keep an eye out for that.
