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 Shane Archbold (Bora-Argon18) has also withdrawn after breaking his pelvis in a crash on stage 17.

NB: Time gives are local time, subtract one hour for UK time

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
