stage 15 158.5KM
|17:40||Sky leading the peloton home...|
Eisel is at the front of the bunch just like he said he would be for the final kilometres but instead of leading out the sprint for stage honours, he's keeping his team leader Wiggins in a safe place. When the last time check we had on the peloton was announced it was over 11 and a half minutes...
|17:34||The top five|
FDJ-Big-Mat has now won two stages of the 2012 Tour (following Thibaut Pinot's victory in stage eight). The top placings in the 15th stage are:
1. Pierrick Fedrigo (FRA) FDJ - 3h36'34"
2. Christian Vande Velde (USA) GRS at same time
3. Nicki Sorensen (DEN) STB at 16"
4. Thomas Voeckler (FRA) EUC at 16"
5. Dries Devenyns (BEL) OPQ at 18"
And Samuel Dumoulin (COF) was sixth also at 18 seconds...
|17:31||Fedrigo takes a fourth Tour stage win!|
Fedrigo led the sprint out and Vande Velde just seemed to accept that he didn't have the legs to win today. This is the Frenchman's fourth stage win in the Tour de France.
|17:30||Vande Velde or Fedrigo?|
Either Vande Velde or Fedrigo is going to win the stage. Unless they start playing games and Voeckler and Sorensen are 15" behind... Fedrigo is at the front and Vande Velde is waiting to open up his sprint.
