There can be only one!! Tony Martin crushes the Stage 20 time trial!!
Martin confirms his time trial domination!
Martin had to wait a long time in the race leader’s hot seat but could finally smile and celebrate after Nibali crossed the line.
The German is arguably the greatest time trialist of his generation. He has suffered throughout the Tour, thinking of the final time trial but produced a superb ride to win.
During his ride the “Panzerwagen”, rolled along in his usual imperturbable fashion, pushing a 58-tooth chain ring and passing rider after rider in front of him, including a surprised looking Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha), who had started six minutes earlier.
“I thought I was more tired but I managed to keep a good tempo from start to finish, I didn’t fade, I’m happy with my performance,” Martin said, after climbing onto the stage winner’s podium.
“It’s true, I knew the course well and I had to wait for two weeks to get here. Luckily, I had won a stage already, so it eased the pressure.”
