Tomorrow is the 33km time trial from Avranches to Mont-Saint-Michel. Before the stage be sure to read a special in L'Equipe in English, Clock Hunters, the story about time trial specialists and the special bicycles used in this discipline. The story begins with reference to the Pinarello Espada, pictured below (right) at the Pinarello shop in Treviso.
Despite Tony Martin's crash on the first day, he has been recuperating (on the bike) and is the favorite.
The best Italian time trialist, Adriano Malori, didn't make it to tomorrow's stage having withdrawn on stage 7.
