Tour de France 2021 Favourites stage 5: ITT specialists on rolling route
The 5th stage of the Tour de France is an individual time trial of 27 kilometres. The lightly undulating route features an elevation gain of 200 metres.
Assuming ITT World Champion Filippo Ganna will makes his forst appearance on the Tour de France, the Italian powerhouse is the riders to watch. In 2020, he was in a class of hos own when it came to time time trials. He won all races in which he started. The flat to undulating course to Laval suits his characteristics just perfectly.
In addition to the battle for the stage honours, the ITT will also be the first crucial outing for the GC contenders. The likes of Geraint Thomas and Primoz Roglic should be able to put time into their rivals.
Obviously, the start list is not yet confirmed and it remains to be seen who is on form this summer, so we’ll update this article later.
