Live Betting: Tour de France Stage 4Published July 2, 2013 by OCR Editor
Tour de France time trial begins in Nice at 215pm today UK time.
Nice is only about 100km across the water from the island of Corsica, but it is a world apart for the participants in the 2013 Tour de France. After three days of cycling more than 500km through the sometimes hilly, sometimes flat countryside of Corsica, the riders enter their first city time trial on day four today.
This will be the only team time trial in this year's Tour. The TTT is a road-based bike race in which teams race against the clock, starting at equal intervals of a couple of minutes apart. Unlike the individual time trials (of which there will be two later in the Tour), each member of the team must spend some time in front of and behind their teammates.
Competition will be hot in day four, with more than just the general classification and individual jerseys at stake. This is one of those days in which each of the 19 teams gets to show off their skills and place themselves in the position to be the leading team when the Tour de France rolls into Paris on July 21.
