Stage 11, the Individual Time Trial, at the Tour de France was relatively flat with a few rolling hills early on followed by several sharp turns and long flat sections leading to the finish. The 33 kilometer course, suited for TT specialists, began in Avranches and finished in front of Mont-Saint-Michel, a tidal island dominated by a monastery and abbey. Team Saxo Bank-Tinkoff invited the SRM team to ride along behind Italian cycling veteran, Matteo Tosatto. Below Matteo has shared his SRM files from the warm-up and race.
