Filippo Ganna and Wout van Aert are arguably the best time-trialists in recent years, almost never off the podium in time trials of all varieties. However since August 2020, Ganna has won 14 out of 20 time-trials, even achieving an 8 time-trial streak win, including beating Van Aert twice in the World Championships.
The Italian proved again that he is close to unbeatable on his best form, beating his biggest threat, Remco Evenepoel, by 11 seconds in the 13.9 kilometre long and completely flat ITT
Filippo Ganna is no longer invincible on short and flat time-trials. The young Swiss rider, Stefan Bissegger overthrew the World Champion after an impressive ride, winning his fourth World-Tour stage in 11 months.
As expected, double World Individual Time-Trial champion Filippo Ganna won in dominant fashion in the Tour de la Provence prologue, on a parcours perfect for the powerful Italian.
