Tour de France Stage 19 TT Live Coverage
 

Welcome to the penultimate day of the 2004 Tour de France, the Stage 19 time trial.

Similiar to last year, rain has fallen today at Besançon and could be a factor in this test. We have some quick facts about today's time trial that you can refer to here.

Please refresh this page (F5) to view the latest information. Our commentary today by Anita van Crey, podofdonny and Jan Janssens.

Wauters temporarily in the lead but Ekimov looks like he's taking the lead. He gets a huge cheer to become the new leader. It is overcast and a bit dull, but good still conditions for cycling.

Aitor Gonzalez sets off - looking cool and confident - he will be hoping for a good time today. Sebastian Lang is a little off the pace today - 1.13.43.

There was just a freak wind on the course - blowing hard, blowing lots of stuff on the course...perhaps it was the helicopter.

There are four intermediate time checks today: Bonnet-Rond - km 18.0
Courchelles - km 35.0
Les Planches - km 40.0
La Gare - km 47.5

Botero coming in, with a below-par performance to his standards...7th at 1.51 from Ekimov. Guttierez made a strong start; at the first checkpoint he's 18 seconds faster than Wauters...

The Illes Baleares team has had a disappointing Tour, so very maybe they make it up in the last two days! Bettini not far behind Serrano out on the course.

For Ekimov to take the lead in this event is quite remarkable - especially when you consider that he spent much of yesterday leading the peloton.

The current leader board is:
1 EKIMOV (RUS, USP) 01:11:43.300
2 WAUTERS (BEL, RAB) at 11"
3 CANCELLARA (SUI, FAS) at 42"
4 PESCHEL (GER, GST) at 01' 29"
5 KRIVTSOV (UKR, A2R) at 01' 31"

Bettini is showing here that some riders can ride just as hard as TT specialists, as long as they have a target riding in front of them. Like Virenque riding behind Ullrich a few years ago. He's careful not to draft though, he stays behind far enough and changes roadside every time Serrano changes. The riders must maintain a certain distance between them in a time trial.

Vandevelde good looking at the 34.2 km - he comes over in third spot as the sun comes out. Meanwhile a farmer has painted the world's largest cyclist along the route. Winner of yesterday's stage, Mercado, taking the start.

Lance Armstrong is in his street clothes checking out the start area, and now George Hincapie is on the course. This is one of the battles of today - that of the T-Mobile vs. USPS in the team ranking...so they'll both be very motivated. And the white jersey, between Voeckler, Karpets and Casar, and possibly the points jersey - O'Grady can TT a fair bit.

Meanwhile Nicholas Portal is ensuring UCI weight regulations are kept by wearing a huge chain around his neck...

Gutierrez is Spanish TT champion, but he's not wearing his national jersey. He's allowed to in a TT, but many teams don't bother taking along national TT jerseys for two stages a year. Aitor Gonzalez is a few seconds faster than Gutierrez on the 18km mark - El Rotador is looking to put down a serious effort today!

Noval coming in, a good 4th place for the young USPS-Spaniard, at 1.04 from his "team papa" Ekimov.

And of course there will be no world champion's jersey riding today since its owner, David Millar, has admitted to dopage offences - Millar has the record for a TT time - but this must be now counted as dubious. Millar in fact won the final time trial at the Tour last year.

Now a stupid fan, looking at the helicopter, almost causes a collision with an Illes Baleares rider.

Gutierrez is in second spot at the second check point - but Bobby Julich is the fastest so far at the first time check. The conditions are drying out very quickly, now as Brochard sets off. The UCI regularly inspects Brochard's hair to make sure he is not gaining unfair aerodynamic advantage...in fact, Vidal Sassoon is expected to take charge of UCI hair control for the Pro Tour...(only joking).

Double national champ of Luxemburg Kim Kirchen coming in on an average 14th place. Gutierrez is 8 seconds slower than Ekimov at the 35km mark, looks like the serial retirer has built out his race a bit better. The bear of Balears - Osa - is losing a fair bit time on the course today. Julich up 45 seconds at the first time check.

Today's course does have many of the characteristics of the ITT in Cap Découverte last year, where Armstrong 'bonked' (well he did come in second). So Ullrich isn't without chances here.

Stage winner and Green jersey chaser O'Grady in now, at 2.52 from Ekimov - a steady time of 1.14.35 - nearly three minutes down on Ekimov - but still a good ride.

Tour Trivia: Besancon has received a Tour stage for the 17th time in Tour history today! Last time was in '96, Blijlevens won that stage.

Vandevelde has a solid ride - 4th so far. Ekimov still tops the leader board.

Zabel gets a huge cheer when he finishes. Zabel in on an average 20th place...Godefroot has said numerous times that if you could transplant Zabel's willpower and tenacity on Ullrich's natural talent, you would get a second Merckx (if such a thing were possible).

Ah ha! The Terminaitor looking very good today with 3rd at the second check point. Now Michael Rogers sets off - he can do a good time trial and will hope not repeat the mistake he made on the prologue. In the prologue he started to pedal too soon coming out of a roundabout - pedal hit the ground and Rogers hit the floor.

Julich on fire - 44.07 at the second check point. Julich has a very peculiar style too, not looking very efficient, but it is effective, apparently. And it seems Bobby's wrist is way better, since he beats all intermediate times so far.

A weird situation now, three riders together...Gutierrez riding past a Saeco and Gerölsteiner rider.

If Basso is going to ride anything like his teammates so far, Ullrich and Klöden will have a mighty hard time...

The current leader board:
1 EKIMOV (RUS, USP) 01:11:43.300
2 WAUTERS (BEL, RAB) at 11"
3 CANCELLARA (SUI, FAS) at 42"
4 VANDEVELDE (USA, LST) at 47"
5 NOVAL GONZALEZ (ESP, USP) at 01' 04"

New best time for Gutierrez of Illes Balears! He finishes in 01:11:42.800 to Eki's 01:11:43.300.

To enlighten on the team ranking, only the times of the 3 best riders in the GC are taken in account. For USPS those are Armstrong, Azevedo and Rubiera. T-Mobile has Ullrich, Klöden and Guerini up there.

Voigt - what a great tour he has had, and is second so far at second check point. Karpets about to start the fight for the white jersey, yet another one eager for a haircut...maybe he and Brochard will form a 70's cover band.

Regardless of whether he wins the the white jersey overall, little Thomas Voeckler will probably have worn most jerseys of all riders in this Tour!

Landis 15 seconds faster than Julich at the first time check!

Yelling of "Reeeechaaard" fills the Besancon air when Tricky Dick hits the start. It's a little known fact that Virenque flies in cheerleaders chosen from his website housewives who are bike fans...

Voigt flying past Petrov, who is éspoirs World champion ITT...meanwhile, Landis gets a best intermediate at 18 km, beating Julich's time. Voigt is passing Egoi Martinez, he's positively flying! Petrov is overtaking Martinez as well.

And as Voeckler takes the start, will he fall on the karpets or can he cut the rug? Karpets was trained as a track rider, originally, but he focused on the road afterwards.

The Terminaitor, Aitor Gonzalez is coming in now, looking like he's going to put down a new best time. He has been gettiing faster all the time - yes! The new fastest time of 1.11.23!

Rasmussen starting now...the man has been trying hard to give the Rabo boys the stage win, but always just failed. Let's see how the former mountainbike WC will do in this TT.

And now Julich sets the new best time!!! 1:09:37!

The current leader board:
1 JULICH (USA, CSC) 01:09:37.290
2 GONZALEZ (ESP, FAS) at 01' 45"
3 GUTIERREZ (ESP, IBB) at 02' 05"
4 EKIMOV (RUS, USP) at 02' 06"
5 WAUTERS (BEL, RAB) at 02' 17"

Moreau sets off - he has looked strong throughout the race, without converting that strength into results... Armstrong's comment on the course, after he first inspected it, was "piece of cake". But later on we heard from local riders (like Moreau) that it's a much harder course than it looks...

Chavanel - wearing the Baghdad designed turban-helmet which is also used for camel racing...

Landis nearing the 34 km mark - he looks like he's going to better it. He does it, first place there, 7 seconds faster than Julich!

I'm surprised that everyone is using rear discs, considering there is a cross wind - but I am always surprised at discs anyway, from the handling point of view.

Voigt, the teutonic tester, is 2nd 1'10'08 at the check. Petrov, one of the riders Voigt ate, comes in at the 13th place, down 3.37 from Julich.

Sastre up the starting stage now! As a former ONCE rider and member of the Riss TT-brigade, he should do fine here.

The current leader board:
1 JULICH (USA, CSC) 01:09:37.290
2 VOIGT (GER, CSC) at 31"
3 GONZALEZ (ESP, FAS) at 01' 45"
4 GUTIERREZ (ESP, IBB) at 02' 05"
5 EKIMOV (RUS, USP) at 02' 06"

In Bescancon there is a particular museum, suiting today's stage greatly. The museum is all to do with time and clocks and so on....and the city also shows that it is famous for floating on its waters...

Rubiera has the 4th time at the first mark, another USPS rider going strong. Beltran, who has finished, briefs Armstrong on the course - they do usually do that; early starters checking the course out for the main men.

Thomas Voeckler was born on the isle of Martinique, both of his parents are doctors...his father disappeared at sea one day, when he was still very young. They never knew what actually happened to him, whether he had run off or had died in an accident. Thomas is always hoping he's still alive, but then again he's not, as that would mean he left his family...

Voeckler is riding like a man possessed. However, he is losing time to Karpets and Casar - looks like the Russian has a magic carpet today. Meanwhile, Merckx is going very well, he might not lose his 21st place in the GC! Santos Gonzalez 4th so far, for Phonak who have had a very disappointing race. But we are waiting for Landis, who's going to be even faster than Julich, most likely.

The roads are now completely dry and much safer and faster for the riders who set off last. Jan The Man Ullrich in the starthouse...Jan obviously sees yellow, since he is wearing yellow-tinted glasses. Ullrich probably sets off in 56x11 - Armstrong will be riding 11x56...

Rubiera doing an amazing TT for a climber - 4th spot so far.

Klöden also on the road - Klöden and Ullrich went to the same school in Berlin, and they used to watch the Tour de France together, there.

Karpets beats Casar at an intermediate...and Landis sets the new best time! Basso taking off, now it's only the Boss himself left...

Current leader board:
1 LANDIS (USA, USP) 01:09:14.740
2 JULICH (USA, CSC) at 22"
3 VOIGT (GER, CSC) at 53"
4 HINCAPIE (USA, USP) at 01' 30"
5 GONZALEZ (ESP, PHO) at 01' 51"

And Armstrong is on the course, to deafening noise from the crowds at the startline.

He can break his own record of stage wins in one Tour, today. He has never won more than 4, but today he can win 5 (not counting the TTT).

Basso on the course - the Italian needs a cool head, strong legs (and probably a motorbike)...

It seems there some threats have been sent to the Tour organisation regarding Lance Armstrong. The leader in the yellow jersey now has extra security there, one in front of him, one behind him.

In the white jersey battle, Karpets is from St. Petersburg and looks odds on for the young rider now - he has had a great season and is doing a good ride. He has already won Vuelta Rioja this season and is a good friend of Ekimov whom he rode with on the Itera team.

Leipheimer going well. Voeckler coming to the next check.

Poor Voeckler has lost his final jersey in the race, but he is nonetheless a distinct hero in this tour edition.

It's waiting for the times of the first 4 in the GC now... Armstrong, of course, has based his pedalling style on years of studying hummingbird wings - only choosing a slightly faster cadence. Ullrich, on the other hand, has based his style on Texan nodding donkeys - but picked a slighty higher gear and slower cadence.

Meanwhile, Leipheimer could very well threaten Sastre for his eighth place, being the better time trialist.

While Jan Ullrich was raised by a single mother, Andreas Klöden was the son of a fighter pilot, so he was a bit better off than his friend. All within DDR standards, of course. Klöden seems to be 5 seconds ahead of Ullrich at 18 km.

The thought occurs to me that both Postal and T-Mobile are run by Belgians - then again some would argue that Bruyneel is the Merckx of management - as his son Axel finishes in 1'13' 17th spot, a very good time (to his standards). Did Eddie have any other children? Axel, and his sister Chainring? (Only joking...)

Rubiera is here! 4th at some 50 seconds from Landis. That is astonishing for the Spanish mountain man.

Klöden 2nd best time at the first checkpoint, 4 seconds slower than Der Jan! Klöden started off a little faster than his teammate, but has to give in a bit at the second intermediate (at 18 km).

And some things never change, as Karpets is accompanied by the "Venga, venga, venga!" of Mr. Saiz...

Leipheimer at the second time check, 6th at 1.01. Basso has third time at the first mark, same time as Klöden!!!

Karpets meantime, looking like a refugee from Spinal Tap, is weaving a tapestry across this TT course. And it looks like Ullrich is going to have a hell of a time passing Klöden and Basso now!!

It's Magic Karpets! 1.10.22! Karpets grabbing the white jersey, the Giant of St. Petersburg is currently 4th at a good minute from Landis. Who says you have to be French to have bad hair!!!! Look out Brochard, there is a new kid on the block...

Armstrong gains on Ullrich 43 seconds at the first time mark!! Fortunately there is a speed check at 35 kilometres, so by the time Armstrong has paid his fine the others will have caught up a bit...

At the first check: 1) Armstrong, 2) Ullrich @ 43 seconds, 3) Klöden @ 47 and 4) Basso @ 47.

Virenque arriving, 24th at 4.11 from Landis...Bahamontes thinks that it's a disgrace that Virenque has won 7 polka-dot jerseys, as he's not a real climber.

The leader board while the GC leaders are on the road:
1 LANDIS (USA, USP) 01:09:14.740
2 JULICH (USA, CSC) at 22"
3 VOIGT (GER, CSC) at 53"
4 KARPETS (RUS, IBB) at 01' 07"
5 RUBIERA (ESP, USP) at 01' 14"

Waiting for the 2nd intermediate check now, see if Ullrich can still put Basso and Klöden behind him by a larger margin.

Here comes Voeckler - his glory days behind him he has lost 6 minutes to magic Karpets.

Ullrich at the 2nd time mark, 43 seconds faster than Landis there!

The crowd nonetheless gives Voeckler enormous support.

Jan's friend, compatriot and teammate Andreas Klöden, is now passing by the 2nd mark at 35kms, 2nd time there, at 17 seconds from Jan. Moreau at the finish, a rather average time, 11th at 2.32 from Landis. Landis still in first spot at the finish, but that will very likely change, of course.

Now Ivan The Terrible is at the 2nd mark!! 48 seconds behind Ullrich there! Basso is beginning to lose serious time - this could be a disaster for the Italian. If he bonks during the last part of the race, he's gonna have to look out for his second place...

Pereiro coming in, 13th time at 2.55 from Landis.

Armstrong nearing the 2nd checkpoint now...and he sets the best time there! Armstrong's time keepers will be using a calender to calculate the time differences between himself and his rivals. Ullrich @ 46, Klöden @ 1.04, Basso @ 1.35.

Basso is losing seconds by every km he is covering...Leipheimer at the finish line. The man fom Montana is in at 7th spot with 1'10'55. Meanwhile Armstrong is attacking the small climb like he wants to take off when he hits the summit. Basso only has 8 seconds left on Klöden!! It's looking very much like Basso is going to have to give up his 2nd spot to Klöden.

Ullrich's TT helmet was designed by the Zeppelin brothers - whose son Led has a band that Karpets wants to play in...ugh, the suspense! Sorry...

Armstrong is now 51 seconds faster than Ullrich at the 3rd mark! It could get even more interesting: Armstrong might just overtake Basso, and maybe Basso can take advantage of Armstrong as an aiming point.

Armstrong the fastest at the first three time checks. Totschnig is arriving, 18th spot at 3.21 from Floyd Landis. Klöden only 10 seconds behind Ullrich at the fourth check at 48 km!

Armstrong is like a machine...amazing...apart perhaps, from that moment yesterday, this Tour has been pure perfection for Lance Armstrong. Interesting to see that Armstrong is often out of the saddle - he seems to have altered his TT style this year - it is more of a street fighting style - much more animated and not a traditional position.

Basso at 17 seconds from Klöden now, fight for 2nd place seems to be all over. Mancebo is here, 27th at a few minutes from Landis, Azevedo right behind him, 6th place for him!

Ullrich steamrolling to the finish, takes first place!! To huge cheers, his time 1.07.50.

Even if he's not holding his second place, Basso is riding an amazing TT compared to last year. Kudos to him for that. Now Armstrong 54 seconds faster than Ullrich at the last checkpoint. Basso beginning to rock slightly - he is fighting for his place - Riis has obviously taught him a lot about testing.

Klöden in the last kilometer now - Klöden 2nd, at 26 seconds!! Only Basso and the 6 time Tour winner left to come in.

Lance Armstrong is hunting down his prey Ivan Basso, will he grab him before the Italian reaches the finish line, or will he not? Lance back across the river...Basso pushing and pushing, as the 1 km kite looms.

The Italian Basso, Canadian bike, Danish team, German support vehicle, French race - is under the Flamme Rouge. He is giving everything he has.

Basso is not caught on the course by Armstrong, who was hard on him. Basso comes in in 5th place, at 1.50 from Jan. Now Armstrong sets the best time, takes his fifth win in this edition and has sealed his sixth Tour de France.

1. Armstrong 1.06.49
2. Ullrich @ 1.01
3. Klöden @ 1.27
4. Landis @ 2.25
5. Basso @ 2.48

The General Classification
1. Armstrong
2. Klöden @ 6.38
3. Basso @6.59
4. Ulrich @ 9.09

Chris Carmichael, LA's personal trainer, said: "You can write it down: he's coming back for his 7th next year."

Lance receives a new yellow jersey, his 64th so far. In his post-race interview, he says: "After the first time check I tried not to take any risks."

Asked about how it feels to win his sixth, Armstrong says he still has to be careful - if you crash on the Champs Elysees and don't finish, you don't win. He cannot put into words what it is like - he said that in a week or two he might be able to say. After winning his first, he felt he could go away and die a happy man, so he just cannot put into words what this will feel like.

A calculation has been done from live images of LA's pedalling frequencing, 27 full revolutions in 15 seconds... hummingbird wings indeed!

Well, thank you so much for joining us today, and please come back tomorrow for the parade into Paris, which may also see the final shakeout for the green points jersey. It has been quite a Tour, so do join the party tomorrow!

In fact, there were dozens of race fans in our chatroom during the time trial today, and you are cordially invited to join us there tomorrow as well!
