    Tour de France 2015 - stage 11

    Race Report: Today was the perfect day for a successful long break and so it transpired. Tinkoff-Saxo must be a little happier as Rafal Majka won stage 11 after crossing the Aspin and the Tourmalet. The ride of the day came from Dan Martin who soloed to the leaders on the Tourmalet, but missed out on the stage win by 1 minute.

    Roadside St. 4: I wrote about anticipation on Saturday, that feeling when the race is about to start.

    The 2015 Tour de France will not be crossing the Col du Galibier, normally the highest point of the French Grand Tour, on its way to l'Alpe d'Huez on stage 20.
