Tour de France 2019 – Stage 21: Prediction, top ten time gaps, start time and TV stream

Barring a catastrophe or something entirely unprecedented, Egan Bernal is set to make history as the 2019 Tour de France rolls into Paris on Sunday. The 22-year old will become the first Colombian and the youngest rider in the modern era, to win the Grand Tour.

Bernal took the yellow jersey from Frenchman Julian Alaphilippe on Friday, following a dramatic stage which was cut short due to dangerous conditions.

Stage 20 was subsequently also reduced, but the Colombian powered through with teammate and co-captain Geriant Thomas riding for him rather than mounting a last-ditch title defence.

Prediction

You know what, what the hell. We’ve gotten everything so wrong this tour, we might as well throw the kitchen sink at it and predict that Geriant Thomas is going to go rogue and try claw back some time, leaving an unsuspecting Egan Bernal as stunned as the rest of us.
