Impact on jerseys
Polka dot 1/5
Stage 15 looks perfect for a sprint finish, and after the arduous last week the fast men of the race have suffered, they will not want to relinquish their chance to appear in the spotlight once again.
Just one climb – the fourth-category Côte de Villespassans – falls on the upward path through the Languedoc Roussillon.
Another week lies between today and the sprinters’ next (and final) chance for glory in Paris, so expect your TV to be filled with HTC-Highroad, Lampre and Garmin-Cervélo jerseys throughout.
