Le Tour de France Stage 15

14. July 2013 - 4 years, 2 months and 8 days ago

Stage 15 of the Tour de France was 242.5km from Givors to the mountain top finish atop Mont Ventoux in the Provence region of southern France. The longest day in the 100th Tour de France ended with Christopher Froome (Sky) extending his lead with a thrilling stage win. Movistar Team's Nairo Quintana battled for a close second 29 seconds back. Two category 4 climbs in the first 30km set the stage for an early break in the day. RadioShack Leopard's Spanish pro, Markel Irizar, made the first group and spent the majority of the race out front in preparation for Andy Schlek's potential attack. Markel's SRM race file is a spectacular example of the power and endurance required for a rider at the Pro Tour level.
