St Pée/Nivelle → Espelette : Stage 20 - 31 km - 28 juillet

The only individual time-trial of the 105th edition is 31km long. However, the geography of the Basque Country may be more suited to punchers than pure time-trialists. If the podium ranking hasn’t already been set, climbers who are still fresh at the end of this Tour will have a card to play.
