Yves Lampaert stuns Wout van Aert to win stage 1 at Tour de France 2022 - Results

Find out what happened in the 13.4km time trial on the roads of Copenhagen, Denmark.

By Alessandro Poggi

Yves Lampaert (Belgium) opened road cycling's 2022 Tour de France in style.

The Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl rider won the 13.2km rain-drenched opening time trial around the central streets of Copenhagen on Friday (1 July) in a time of 15 minutes and 17 seconds to claim the leader's yellow jersey.

The 31-year-old bumped his compatriot Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) off the top spot by five seconds. Slovenia's Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) is seven seconds behind in third. Italy's time trial world champion Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers) sits in fourth.

"My mind is exploding," said Lampaert after the biggest win of his career. "I came with the expectation that a top-10 finish would be great. Now I beat all the best riders in the world. I'm just a farmer's son from Belgium. I never expected it."

On Saturday the peloton will remain in Denmark: the 202.2km-stage from Roskilde to Nyborg features some modest climbs and winds could have an impact on the race.

Here is everything you need to know about this year's Tour de France.
