Barguil Gives Us a Great Pick!

Warren Barguil delivered a second consecutive mountain stage win for France with his impressive ride in today’s Stage 13.  Below shows how well we picked this stage.

  • Stage 13:  2h 36′ 29″ (actual), 2h 34′ 22″ (prediction), 02′ 07″ fast (-1.35% error)
That makes six stages predicted to better than 2% and nine of the 13 stages predicted to better than 3%.  Below is our prediction for tomorrow’s hilly Stage 14.
  • Stage 14:  4h 12′ 56″ (prediction)
Fabio Aru holds a slight 6-s lead over Chris Froome for the yellow jersey.
