Dumoulin crushes Tour de France stage 13 TT, Froome extends GC lead

by Michael Better

Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin) scorched the 37.5km (23.3mi) stage 13 individual time trial at the 2016 Tour de France on Friday to win with a time of 50:15.

The Dutchman, winner of the opening individual time trial at the Giro d’Italia in May, averaged an impressive 44.78kph (27.8mph) over the rolling, windy course. Race leader Chris Froome (Team Sky) finished in second, 1:03 behind, with Nelson Oliveira (Movistar), an early leader, in third, 1:31 behind.

“This was my big goal before this Tour de France,” Dumoulin said after securing the stage victory. “I went a bit out of focus this morning, which is normal when you hear about these terrible things happening, just a few hundred kilometres away from here. Two hours before the start I thought ‘Ok, we’re racing anyway. I’m just going for it’ and I went for it and it was a very very good TT. But to win with more than a minute on Froome and anyone else is something I didn’t expect. It gives me a lot of confidence.”

After Thursday’s debacle on Mont Ventoux with the TV moto, Froome showed no lasting effects of the incident by putting considerable time into the riders battling him for the overall title. Froome’s closest GC competitor on the stage was Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) who finished 51 seconds behind the maillot jaune. The Dutchman, who was discouraged by the race jury’s decision to adjust the finishing times on Mont Ventoux, moved up to second overall and trails Froome by 1:45.

The leader of the Best Young Rider classification, Adam Yates (Orica-BikeExchange), rode strongly to retain a spot on the virtual podium, as he sits third overall at 2:45.

    Few thoughts:

    1) It’s hard for me to cheer for Tom Dumoulin, his inconsistency earlier this year was killing me; all the mind games in Giro and then ditched…c’mon, and now he crushed the TT and won an earlier mountain stage??

    2) I’m not sure if I can agree that T’dF is a beautiful circus; It’d be so irritating having people so closed to you under such stressful situation.

    3) I hope, really hope, like really really, hella hope, Quintana brings hell in the remaining stages, otherwise he is the new Froome without the titles.
