Jarlinson Pantano wins brutal 15th stage of Tour de France


Colombian rider Jarlinson Pantano won the brutal 15th stage of the Tour de France through the Jura mountains after a long breakaway on Sunday.

Pantano outsprinted Polish rider Rafal Majka to the finish line in Culoz.

Race leader Chris Froome finished slightly more than three minutes behind in a group including all of the other contenders and kept the yellow jersey.

Majka, who started an early breakaway soon after the start in Bourg-en-Bresse, moved away on his own in the final of six categorized climbs on the day’s agenda.

A third-place finisher at the Spanish Vuelta last year, Majka accelerated in the punishing 8.4-kilometer climb of the Lacets du Grand Colombier to drop Pantano. But Majka made a mistake on the descent and allowed his rival to rejoin him.
