Tour de France stage 19: Castelnau-Magnoac › Cahors, 188.3km.

Geraint Thomas maintained third overall heading into the decisive time trial at the Tour de France as stage 19 finished with a reduced bunch sprint in Cahors. 

Thomas was safely navigated through a technical and high-paced finale by his teammates as the peloton chased down a late break in the final kilometre, with Christoph Laporte (Jumbo Visma) winning the stage. 

Luke Rowe and Dylan van Baarle were key in leading Thomas and the peloton around a winding final 10 kilometres ,which featured numerous roundabouts, to ensure the Welshman finished safely in the pack to hold onto third overall with two stages remaining.
