Today’s fifteenth stage of the Tour de France from Bourg-En-Bresse to Culoz featured some incredible scenery including the spectacular climb of Lacets du Grand Colombier.
The stage was won by Jarlinson Pantano who scored the sixteenth Colombian stage victory at the Tour de France and the first one for IAM Cycling, the only professional Swiss team, the day before the Tour de France will visit Switzerland.
It’s the second participation in the race (19th overall in 2015) for the climber from Cali who also claimed the last stage of the Tour de Suisse last month. He outsprinted Rafal Majka who moved back into the lead of the King of the Mountain classification he won in 2014.
Once more, Nairo Quintana didn’t put Chris Froome’s lead in jeopardy but Colombia had a reason to celebrate with Pantano’s first Tour de France success.
Here are the onboard highlights from the stage:
