  1. Sprint day tomorrow?

    Right, so we go into what is officially classed as a flat stage tomorrow, although there is debate about whether it's of any use to the sprinters.

    If he can stick around over the few bumps that are present on the 209km route from Moirans-en-Montagne to Berne, Mark Cavendish will fancy a sniff at a fifth stage win of 2016.

    An uphill cobbled section before the finish could open it up for the likes of Peter Sagan, though.

    Make sure you join us tomorrow - Alistair Magowan will be filling the well-formed grooves I've left in the commentary seat. Take it easy.

  2. Post update

    There was a sense throughout that stage that it just wasn't worthwhile trying to make an attack on Chris Froome - Team Sky are master tacticians and just slam the door shut on any attack.

    VIVEK K SINGH: It is going to be stroll for Froome for his 3rd #letour...others, so called challengers, are actually just pretenders!

  4. Yellow jersey

    But no changes in the top five of the yellow jersey race. Chris Froome keeps his 1min 47secs lead over Bauke Mollema, with Adam Yates 2mins 45secs behind and Nairo Quintana at +2mins 59secs.

    Tejay van Garderen's struggle at the end there has seen him drop from sixth to eighth - Romain Bardet and Richie Porte have leapfrogged above him.

  5. Post update

    The biggest GC winner today is Sebastien Reichenbach, who finished fourth, six seconds off the winner and three minutes ahead of the yellow jersey group.

    That moves him to around eight minutes off the GC leader.

  6. Post update

    I make that the first Colombian stage win on Le Tour since Nairo Quintana's victory on the penultimate day in 2013.

  7. Darling Jarlinson

    So, we have a Colombian stage winner at the Tour de France - and it's not Nairo Quintana.

    It's this man Jarlinson Pantano with his maiden Grand Tour stage win.

  8. Post update

    Van Garderen was 3mins down on Chris Froome in the yellow jersey competition and he's lost another minute or so today, as he crosses the line.

  9. Froome safely finishes

    The yellow jersey group decide they'll have a little sprint to the line - just for fun.

    It's Woult Poels leading it, and Chris Froome is just behind him with Nairo Quintana next over the line.

    that group was about three minutes behind the stage winner.

  10. Post update

    The dribs and drabs of that early breakaway start to file across the line. And now here's the yellow jersey group - Tejay van Garderen is not with them though.

  11. Pantano wins stage 15

    And now they break into a sprint and Jarlinson Pantano, looking initially like he had no idea what to do with Majka, pulls himself together and wins the sprint to the finish.

  12. Post update

    250m to go

    Majka and Pantano are messing around though, both refusing to go on the front.

  13. Post update

    500m to go

    So, coming down to the final km for the leaders - Rafal Majka v Jarlinson Pantano.

    There's two chasing 20 seconds behind - it's unlikely they'll catch them.

  14. Post update

    1.6km to go

    Chris Froome is so comfortable he has time for what looks like a casual chat with team-mate Wout Poels.

    "What beer should we have with our kebabs later?" is probably what he's saying.

  16. Post update

    3.6km to go

    Movistar have a half-hearted go at attacking from the yellow jersey group - it comes to nothing.

    Mikel Nieve looks to be OK...

    But it just goes to show tha at any moment your Tour can be over.

  19. Post update

    4.5km to go

    Rafal Majka had earlier gone off on to a grass embankment on this descent - he stayed on his bike though.

    Not such luck for Team Sky's Mikel Nieve, who hits the same embankment and takes a tumble - yet to see if he's back in the yellow jersey group to help his man Chris Froome... it doesn't seem like he is.
