The breakaway is made up of three tremendous riders, although we see that Mikkel Honoré is not nearly taking over and it is that, in principle, his team, the Quick-Step, must work today to ensure a finish in the sprint for Fabio Jakobsen.
Wout van Aert, Nils Politt and Mikkel Honoré have taken a few meters of advantage. They march at the moment with about ten seconds of difference with respect to the platoon.
Huge Wout van Aert again in the Tour de France. He is looking to be part of the breakaway and the sense of strength that he is offering on all grounds is tremendous.
Several attempts are being made by runners who seek to be part of the day's breakaway, but without much success at the moment because the peloton is going at a high pace and so it is difficult for the breakaway to form at the moment.
THE STAGE BEGINS!!! And attacks as soon as they start!!!
It seems that Pierre-Luc Perichon has suffered a puncture and this is causing the start of the start to be slightly delayed... The Frenchman is back in the group and it's starting now!!!
For his part, Simon Geschke continues as leader of the mountain classification. The German cyclist has 46 points, seven more than Louis Meintjes and nine more than Neilson Powless.
Wout van Aert continues to dominate the classification of regularity with enormous authority. The Belgian has 333 points, 169 more than Tadej Pogacar.
Jonas Vingegaard faces the stage in the yellow jersey. The Danish cyclist from Jumbo Visma is 2' 22'' ahead of Tadej Pogacar and 2' 43'' over Geraint Thomas.
FACT. Primoz Roglic has retired in only two of his ten starts in the three Grand Tours, although those two retirements have taken place in the last two editions of the Tour de France.
Thus, Jonas Vingegaard, the leader of the general classification, loses one of his main lieutenants ahead of the last week of competition.
We are aware of three new retirements and that of Primoz Roglic stands out especially, the Slovenian does it to recover from the physical problems that he has suffered since his fall in the Arenberg stage and to better prepare his participation for the Vuelta a España. Neither will Magnus Cort and Simon Clarke start.
However, the profile of this stage will be winding at times and there are even two scoring ports along the route, both third category. These are the Côte d'Ambialet, at kilometer 68, and the Côte des Cammazes, at kilometer 154.
The sprinters finally have a good chance of being able to aspire to a stage victory in a Tour marked by high finishes and really tough mid-mountain routes that have prevented them from being able to secure the final volatta.
Buenas tardes !!! Welcome to the live broadcast of the 15th stage of the Tour de France with a route of 202 kilometers between Rodez and Carcassonne. Ready? We start...
