Greipel gets us under 1%!

André Greipel took the last stage of this year's Tour de France.  His time and a comparison with our prediction are given below.
  • Stage 21:  2h 43' 08" (actual), 2h 41' 38" (prediction), 01' 30" fast (-0.92% error)
We'll definitely take that error to finish off this year's race!  Greipel's average speed is given below.
  • Stage 21:  11.54 m/s (41.56 kph or 25.82 mph)
The big prize, of course, goes to Chris Froome who makes it three out of four.  Froome is now in the upper echelon of Tour de France cyclists.  I was wrong to pick against the defending champion!  Froome's average speed is given below.
  • Chris Froome:  11.00 m/s (39.60 kph or 24.61 mph)
Not bad for 3528.5 km (2192.5 mi)!  Congratulations to Froome and all the cyclists for a great Tour de France.  I wish I could have seen more of the race, but my family will soon be moving across the pond.  And we've got packing to do!
