Le Tour 2016 – Stage 15

Tour de FranceBourg-en-Bresse to Culoz

Distance: 160 kilometers.

Officially this is a mountain stage – no doubt about that. Cat 1 Col du Berthiand, Cat 2 Col du Sappel, Cat 3 Col de Pisseloup, Cat 3 Col de la Rochette, HC Grand Colombier and Cat 1 Lacets du Grand Colombier. This is not a kind stage.

The Colombian, Jarlinson Pantano, won the stage and Rafal Majka took back the polka Dots, but the leaders played it safe and moved as a pack.

It is odd that we haven’t had a French, Spanish, or Italian stage winner yet.
