Tour de France 2019 – Stage 15: Profile, prediction, standings, time and TV stream

Defending Tour de France champion Geraint Thomas put a brave face on his mountain-top wobble Saturday after slipping over two minutes behind overall leader Julian Alaphilippe, but refused to give up on his title bid.

The Welshman’s Tour defence preparations were hit by a nasty fall in June’s Tour de Suisse, but with a powerful team around him he came into the race as hot favourite.

French outsider Alaphilippe, however, has rocked the race with a series of swashbuckling attacks that have put him and not Thomas in the overall lead.
