CHARTRES, France - Bradley Wiggins has won the final time trial of the Tour de France, all but locking up overall victory in the three-week race.

The 32-year-old Team Sky leader obliterated the pack in Saturday's 53.5- kilometre ride from Bonneval to Chartres, and is poised to become the first Briton to take home the yellow jersey.

The race against the clock in Stage 19 sets up what is likely to be a largely ceremonial ride onto the Champs-Elysees in Paris for the finale of the three-week race on Sunday.
