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 Shane Archbold (Bora-Argon18) has also withdrawn after breaking his pelvis in a crash on stage 17.
