Stage 18: Annecy Individual Time Trial

Yauheni Hutarovich, as Lanterne Rouge, had the distinction of being the first to roll down the starting ramp at the 40.5-km time trial in Annecy today. He rode a time of 55:12 (26.4 mph) on the hilly course, moving up relative to his first time trial, and beating 6 other riders (as well as 22 other riders who dropped out along the way before this stage). Hutarovich retains his position as Lanterne Rouge by a margin of about 15 minutes aggregate time.

Marco Bandiera of Lampre-NGC had the slowest time trial of the day at 56:41, which is a 25.72 mph average on the demanding course. Not shabby at all!

Trivia: The Fabians were next-to-first (Cancellara) and next-to-last (Wegmann) today in the ITT.
