To see how close the sprint group was bunched together at the end, check out the image below (click on the image for a larger view).
Kristoff is just ahead of Australia's Heinrich Haussler with Slovakia's Peter Sagan in green on the left coming in third. Kristoff has now won the last two flat stages, and we did a great job predicting his winning time, as the comparison below shows.
- Stage 15: 4h 56' 43" (actual), 4h 58' 57" (prediction), 02' 14" slow (0.75%)
- Stage 15: 12.47 m/s (44.89 kph or 27.89 mph)
The Tour de France has its second and last rest day tomorrow. The Pyrenees are lurking, so cyclists better get lots of rest! I'll post our prediction for Stage 16 tomorrow.
