4:58 p.m. – Our French have fallen behind… David Gaudu lost 37” on the time of Mathieu van der Poel, Romain Bardet is behind by 32”, and it’s worse for Guillaume Martin, who is 49” behind.

4:56 p.m. – HE’S BACK! Thibaut Pinot (Groupama FDJ) took the start of the Tour. Pinot had not taken part in the 2021 Tour, after a series of disappointments: an injury retirement in 2019 in the 19th stage when he was 5th in the general classification, and a new injury in 2020 from the Nice prologue.

4:48 p.m. – A time trial is sometimes an opportunity to talk about heritage and Copenhagen is not lacking in nuggets! The runners notably cross the Queen Louise Bridge, the cycle path the most borrowed in the world, completely crazy right? This granite bridge owes its name to Queen Louise (1818-1898), wife of King Christian IX. She has been dubbed “the mother-in-law of Europe” because four of her six children were married into royal houses in Europe.

4:42 p.m. – Geraint Thomas, the winner of the Tour in 2018 has left the launch pad! And he finds the rain again, like the time trial in Dusselforf in 2017…

4:41 p.m. – Roglic remained 2nd for a while, before being robbed of his place by the Danish Mads Pedersen (Trek)

4:40 p.m. – 4th provisional time for Benjamin Thomas, the Frenchman is 20” behind Mathieu van der Poel

4:37 p.m. – One of the most complicated bends is at the famous Little Mermaid in Copenhagen! It is the most mythical monument of the city. The bronze Little Mermaid rests since 1913 on a rock in the port of the capital, on the shores of the Baltic Sea. Mathieu van der Poel passed the statue a few minutes ago
