Tour de France Stage 15 Winner
For the second time in three years, Pierrick Fédrigo (FDJ-BigMat) has won a Tour de France stage finishing in Pau. This go round in 2012 the cagey Frenchman triumphed in a two-man sprint from Christian Vande Velde (Garmin-Sharp) as the duo left their four breakaway companions behind 6.5km from the finish.
Twelve seconds in arrears, stage 10 winner Thomas Voeckler (Europcar) outkicked Nicki Sörensen (Saxo Bank-Tinkoff Bank) for third. Dries Devenyns (Omega Pharma-Quickstep) crossed the line in fourth, 21 seconds back, while Samuel Dumoulin (Cofidis) was the sixth and final member of the break to finish in Pau, 1:08 behind Fedrigo.
Tour de France Betting Odds: Things will be getting interesting around this time in the 2012 Tour de France, as the riders can practically see the bright lights of Paris on the horizon. However, considering how south they will be, those lights are more likely to be from Barcelona than Paris. Or, even more likely, they are just the sunspots now burned into their sockets after 15 stages of French cycling. Stage 15 represents yet another opportunity for some Tour de France betting online, as the top riders in the world pedal from Samatan to Pau.
Samatan is one of 9 towns this year to debut as a stage hub for the Tour de France. A small town of only 2,400 people, Samatan will certainly explode over the honor of hosting such a prestigious event.
On July 16 they will send them on their way, as the riders anticipate the following day of rest. Certainly the racers will be pining for a bit of relaxation, but they still need to get through stage 15 before they can make use of a down day.
A flat, sprinter stage, Samatan to Pau is the shortest plain stage in the entire Tour, besides the final stretch run through the streets of Paris along the Champs-Elysees. The riders only need to travel 160 km before coming to the finish line of this particular stage. Do not think that means they can start their rest day early, as it represents a chance for the sprinters to jump ahead.
The stage represents a chance for your pocketbook to beef up some, as the Tour de France betting online reaches its 15th stage as well. Head to BookMaker to put your money down on this relatively short stage.
