Saturday’s penultimate stage of the Tour de France will be shortened by 71km because of landslides and severe weather warnings.
The leg will start from Albertville at 13:30 BST, instead of 11:30 BST, and conclude with the final 33km ascent to Val Thorens – a total distance of 59km.
Friday’s stage was halted by a hailstorm and a landslide about 20km from the finish.
Ineos rider Egan Bernal leads the Tour by 48 seconds from Julian Alaphilippe.
Bernal’s team-mate and defending champion Geraint Thomas remains third overall.
The stage will skip one major climb – the Cormet de Roselend, a 19.9km ascent at 6%.
Race organisers said: “Following difficult weather and landslides forecast for tomorrow [Saturday], the route of the 20th stage of the Tour de France has been modified.”
