15th stage summary

149 riders took the start of the fifteenth stage of the Tour. The two non scoring passes hidden at the beginning of the stage were decisive in the formation of the breakaway, which was formed by 32 riders, including those who were going to give everything in the fight for the red polka dot jersey. Nacer Bouhanni (Arkéa Samsic) fell early after a crash suffered on Friday and ended up abandoning the competition.

With an 08'45" lead, the breakaway passed the intermediate sprint in Olette, where Michael Matthews (Team BikeExchange) scored 20 points for the green jersey. Wouter Poels went first on the Montée de Mont-Louis. At kilometer 113, the breakaway set 10'10", the maximum lead of the day, but as the kilometers went by, the group of favorites dropped some time.

The most brutal climb of the stage was the ascent to Port d'Envalira, where the Colombian Nairo Quintana showed his climbing skills and finished 30 seconds behind the rest of the leading group.

On the last climb of the day, the Col de Beixalis, Nairo tried to move the group again, but the only one who responded effectively was the American Sepp Kuss (Jumbo Visma), who went solo leaving the rest with no chances. He crossed the pass with a 00'20" lead over the second (Alejandro Valverde) and even managed to increase it, to arrive alone at the finish line. In the group of favorites, the most important thing came with the drop of Guillaume Martin (Cofidis), who fell back to ninth place overall.
