Tonight's time trial to decide tour

1:47 pm on 26 July 2008

The Tour de France is likely to be decided tonight in the penultimate stage, 53-km individual time trial.

Spaniard Carlos Sastre holds a 1 minute 24 second lead over team-mate Frenk Schleck of Luxembourg.

4th placed Cadel Evans of Australia will be the fastest over the time trial, but the question is, can he make up the 94 seconds he needs to win.

Evans has been considerably quicker than Sastre in the final time trial on the last 3 tours.
