You're reading: Tour de France finale: 2 Schlecks vs. Evans
Popular
on social media

Andy Schleck of Luxembourg holds a 53-second lead over older brother Frank and a 57-second gap on Australia’s Evans, who is considered the best time trial rider among the three.

The riders compete in reverse order of the standings, so the contenders will only take to the course in the late afternoon Saturday. Andy Schleck will have the benefit of riding last — and the added inspiration of wearing yellow.

Although there is one more stage, the leader after the time trial is certain to be the overall victor: Sunday’s finale on the Champs-Elysees in Paris tends to be a ceremonial ride because launching a successful attack on that flat last stage is virtually impossible.
