- Stage 20: 3h 39' 04" (actual), 3h 45' 04" (prediction), 06' 00" slow (2.74% error)
We were worried that our time was going to be much too slow, but we had no need to worry. We'll take another prediction under 3%! Below is Quintana's average speed for the stage.
- Stage 20: 9.510 m/s (34.24 kph or 21.27 mph)
Of the 170 cyclists who crossed the finish line, 25 (about 14.7%) beat our predicted time. All the athletes should sleep well tonight after the past three days in the Alps.
The final stage is difficult to predict because so much of it is ceremonial. There are some good sprints, and Mark Cavendish usually dazzles, but predicting how competitive the stage will be is tough. Nonetheless, we offer our final prediction for this year's Tour de France below.
- Stage 21: 3h 15' 47" (prediction)
That time might be a bit fast, but we are hoping to see some great racing in addition to all the pomp and circumstance. Enjoy the final stage!
