- Stage 21: 2h 27' 02" (actual), 2h 27' 40" (prediction), 38" slow (0.43% error)
Given how the last stage is usually run, I am quite happy with my prediction! I asked yesterday if Mark Cavendish could win his third straight final stage -- and he did! Here is his average speed:
- Stage 21: 10.77 m/s (24.1 mph)
Congratulations to Cadel Evans for becoming Australia's first Tour de France winner!
Tomorrow I will post a summary of my predictions for this year's Tour de France. Five stage predictions came in under 1% off. Just one stage came in over 8%, and that was my dreadful Stage 16 (still an enigma for me!). I am happy with how my model did!
