The 2011 Tour de France has one final stage remaining on Sunday, but all was likely settled after Saturday's Stage 20 individual time trial. Tony Martin won the stage, but Cadel Evans finished in second to take a healthy lead over Andy Schleck for the yellow jersey.
Barring any extraordinary events on the ride into Paris on Sunday, Evans will become the first Australian cyclists to win the general classification portion of the race. The Schleck Bros. provided a tough challenger, but they will ultimately come up just behind Evans. Thomas Voeckler wore the yellow jersey for several days, but the last few mountains stages saw him lose that. Alberto Contador, the winner of the previous two races, jumped near the top of the leaderboard and will likely finish in fifth.

Mark Cavendish retained the green jersey following Saturday's stage, but there are still points to be won on Sunday. Cavendish will not want any slip ups as he enters Paris.

Pierre Rolland is in place to win the best youth rider, but he has just a 46 second lead over Rein Taaramae. Team Garmin-Cervelo holds the overall team lead and will likely retain that as well:
