Official pre-race summary for Stage 5 (June 30):
“The Tour de France is no longer in Brittany but holds its first stage in the Mayenne department of the Madiot brothers since 1999. It’s a 27km individual time trial from Changé to Laval on the same distance that enabled Julian Alaphilippe to win around Pau two years ago. Current race leader Mathieu van der Poel doesn’t sound very optimistic in retaining the yellow jersey. He sees his arch-rival Wout van Aert as the main candidate for the overall lead. The Belgian is 31’’ down on him on GC while Alaphilippe is at 8’’. European time trial champion Stefan Küng is another favourite for the stage victory. It’s a course for specialists, especially on the way back to Laval with wide roads and a possible head wind.” letour.fr - Stage 5
Official post-race summary for Stage 5 (June 30):
“Tadej Pogačar routed his rivals in the 27.2 km individual time trial from Changé to Laval on Wednesday to reaffirm his status as the odds-on favourite to win the Tour de France. The Slovenian rider followed up his momentous victory in the final time trial of the previous edition on La Planche des Belles Filles with another flash of brilliance and sent a clear message to his opponents, while Mathieu van der Poel went deep into the red in the finale to keep hold of his yellow jersey by just eight seconds over Pogačar. Swiss rider Stefan Küng, the European champion against his clock, produced a rock-solid performance but still finished 19 seconds behind the UAE Team Emirates leader, who blasted through the course at an average speed of over 50 km/h.
Dane Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo–Visma) came in third ahead of his leaders Wout van Aert in fourth and Primož Roglič in seventh, whereas other favourites such as Julian Alaphilippe, fourteenth at 1′11″, and Geraint Thomas, sixteenth at 1′18″, were left reeling after the first major test of this edition.” letour.com - Stage 5.

COMMENTS FROM RACE DIRECTOR CHRISTIAN PRUDHOMME - STAGE 5:
“The first week of the Tour hadn’t offered such a long individual time-trial since 2008, year of the last Grand Départ in… Brest! Geography commanded to break an eventual litany of flat stages and this gift to the time-trial specialists shows our will to vary the scenario and reshuffle the established positions” (Tour de France Stage 5).
