Tour De France 2013 Stage 15 Givors To Mont Ventoux Review

Updated: July 14, 2013

Chris Froome wins the most prestige and longest stage of this year’s Tour De France to gain extra time over his rivals ahead of the Alp stages to surely decide this year’s winner. This was Chris Froome’s second stage win this year and yet again was largely helped by team-mates Peter Kennaugh and Richie Porte.

After 2 kilometres, there was a break-away from world champion, Gilbert (BMC), and Westra (VCD) that only lasted 5 kilometres. Reza (EUC), De Gendt (VCD) and Kloden (RTL) were a part of the next break-away, they were followed a few minutes later by Costa (MOV), Coppel (COF) and Martin (OPQ). De Gendt took the only point on cote d’Eyzin-Pinet. Their lead was over after 24 kilometres.

Rolland (EUC) and Poels (VCD) broke away momentarily on the second climb to compete for the point available which was taken by

Rolland. Sagan (CAN), Irizar, (RTL), Fedrigo (FDJ), Roy (FDJ), Riblon (ALM), Losada (EUS), Chavanel (OPQ), Impey (OGE), Poels (VCD), El Fares (SOJ) were the biggest threat to the peloton when they broke away, on cote de Lens-Lestang, it was El Fares who picked up the only point for the climb. There were counter-attacks from Rolland, Burghardt, Le Mevel and Astarloza.

On the cote de Bourdeaux, there were two points on offer, Roy took two points and Riblon took one point. After having a maximum advantage of 6 minutes 50 seconds, the leaders’ lead shrunk slowly, El Fares was the first caught a long time before the others. The other leaders were still ahead by the time the intermediate sprint approached and Sagan seemed to be the obvious winner, Chavanel looked like he would make a move for the win but didn’t, that let Sagan take the 20 Pts. Chavanel (17 Pts), Impey (15 Pts).

After the sprint, Chavanel decided to attack his fellow escapees and quickly gained an advantage over them. Riblon and Irizar formed a group that tried tracking down Chavanel. Just before Sagan got caught, he did an impressive wheelie just to show off, he then dropped back into the peloton and at around about the same time, Losada, Poels, Impey, Fedrigo and Roy were caught by the peloton. Riblon dropped off into the peloton and was quickly replaced in Irizar’s group by Bakelants, then Nieve looked like he wanted to join the group that were trying to catch Chavanel.

Quintana attacked early on the final mountain, he stormed up the mountain over-taking everyone in sight, at that time Nieve decided to over-take Irizar, Backelants and Chavanel to keep him ahead of the yellow jersey group for a bit longer. Quintana tried to worked together with Nieve but Nieve couldn’t keep up with him. Team Sky’s attack on Quintana was amazing with Peter Kennaugh keeping up the pace at first then Richie Porte accelerating to lose everyone in the peloton except for Contador. When the time was right, Chris Froome attacked and Contador couldn’t keep up or even attack, it didn’t take Froome long to show who was the master and who was the apprentice when Quintana struggled to keep up with Froome near the end as Froome crossed the line 29 seconds ahead of the Movistar leader.
