2016 Tour de France: Amazing Cav wins again – tough stage today

Yesterday saw Mark Cavendish rack up his 4th win in this year's Tour taking his total to an amazing 30 Tour de France stage wins. Cav is only the second rider to reach 30. Now only the great Eddy Merckx is ahead by four stage wins. There remain two possible sprint stages left – Berne on Monday and Paris next Sunday.  

No change to the overall standings but that is likely to change after today's tough stage in the Juras.

Stage 15 Bourg-en-Bresse to Culoz 160 kms

This should be a tough ride through the Jura Mountains featuring the Grand Colombier (HC). Surely if Chris Froome's  rivals are going to start to threaten his lead they will need to start here. If not, Froome could well gain more time here today.
