Fabio Aru (Astana)
As stage 15 of the Tour de France comes to a close, and the second rest day looms over the horizon, the general classification has remained unchanged. It’s true that Fabio Aru had to separate himself from the Yellow Jersey (and his KEO BLADE CARBON pedals of the same color) after arriving in Rodez, but the Italian rider is still in a strong position to win the Tour de France. The Astana rider is in second place, a mere 18” from Chris Froome, before the decisive battle in the Alps. Roman Bardet, who also rides with our pedals, is in third place, only 23” down.

After fifteen stages, LOOK athletes have claimed three victories thanks to Fabio Aru (stage 5), Lilian Calméjane (stage 8) and Romain Bardet (stage 12).
Lilian Calméjane (Direct Energie)
Brice Feillu, who states that the 785 Huez RS has been “his bicycle of choice” since the start of the Tour, is currently 19th overall. The winner of stage 7 in 2009, that finished in Arcalis (Valnord), Andorra, has been impatiently waiting for the Alps where his « super light 785 Huez RS, will reveal its full potential…”
Brice Feillu (Fortuneo-Oscaro)
If there is a rider from Team Fortuneo-Oscaro that has been repeatedly seen at the front of the race, it’s definitely Pierre-Luc Périchon. Part of stage 14’s breakaway to Rodez, he gave a repeat performance the next day in the mountains of France’s Massif Central.
Make the most of tomorrow’s rest day. The final sprint to the finish is coming up fast, and you won’t want to miss any of the action!
