- Stage 15: 4h 20' 24" (actual), 4h 36' 38" (prediction), 16' 14" slow (6.23% error)
This is the one stage I'm kicking myself over! After three grueling mountain stages, I knocked my code's biker power input down just a little for Stage 15. Had I not done that, my error would have been cut in half. The fact that I was wrong to do that actually inspires me because that means the athletes at the Tour de France are even better than I first thought. Here is what Mark Cavendish was able to average in today's impressive win:
- Stage 15: 12.32 m/s (27.6 mph)
This is almost exactly the same speed Cavendish averaged during his win in Stage 11. Certainly impressive!
Monday is a rest day. I plan to publish my Stage 16 prediction on Monday. I am hoping to get one or two more profile points. Right now, I need to get a few other things done so that I can watch the women's World Cup final. Go US!
