2010 Tour de France
July, 2010

Back to 2010 Tour de France

Photos from Stage 15, Monday July 19: Pamiers - Bagnères-de-Luchon, 187.5 km

Sunflowers

There, I've done it. Here's the obligatory TDF picture of the peloton passing by a field of sunflowers.

Voeckler and Ballan

Here's the day's break led by Alessandro Ballan (left) and Thomas Voeckler. Voeckler would later escape from this group.

Team Saxo

Yellow jersey Andy Schleck is escorted by teammates Stuart O'Grady and Fabian Cancellara.

Alberto Contador

Contador descends on the way to the finish.

And Andy Schleck descends in pursuit. I can't tell if Schleck's bike has one of those guards to keep the chain from dropping off the inner ring to the bottom bracket.

Thomas Voeckler wins stage 15

And here's the result. Voeckler wins stage 15.

Followed shortly thereafter by Ballan and Aitor Perez.

Andy Schleck did a good job of minimizing his losses. Here he finishes with Van Den Broeck and Vinokourov.

Laurent Fignon and Bernard Hinault

Old adversaries at the prize presentations, Laurent Fignon, who is fighting cancer, and Bernard Hinault.
