Bardet Makes France Proud!

Romain Bardet won a fast Stage 12 in the mountains today.  Check out how fast below.

  • Stage 12:  5h 49′ 38″ (actual), 6h 04′ 33″ (prediction), 14′ 55″ slow (4.27% error)

Our error isn’t too large, but I’ve gotten used to hitting the mountain stages a little closer.  Tomorrow’s mountain stage isn’t even half as long as today’s stage, but it has three category-1 climbs and a speedy downhill finish.  Our prediction is given below.

  •  Stage 13:  2h 34′ 22″ (prediction)

Aru Fabio picked up time on Chris Froome today and wrested the yellow jersey away from the three-time champion.  Will Froome get it back tomorrow?
