- Stage 21: 3h 06' 14" (actual), 3h 15' 47" (prediction), 09' 33" slow (5.13% error)
I am surprised that this final stage was as fast as it was, though I shouldn't be, given how the second week went. Below is Kittel's average speed.
- Stage 21: 11.95 m/s (43.0 kph or 26.73 mph)
At least there was some exciting sprinting to close out this year's race! Congratulations to Christopher Froome of Team Sky for winning this historic Tour de France.
It was a fun three weeks following the Tour de France and posting predictions. I thank my student, Brian Ramsey, for all the work he put into this year's model. I also thank colleagues, friends, and the many people I don't know around the world who checked out my blog. If a little physics you found here increased your enjoyment of the Tour de France by just the tinniest amount, that's good enough for me. I'll probably have more to write about the Tour de France in the not-too-distant future.
