Follow live updates from Stage 15 of the Tour de France, on a day that should be set for the sprinters after a tough week in the Alps and two transition days for the breakaways. Michael Matthews clinched his first Tour de France stage win in five years yesterday when he beat Alberto Bettiol and Thibaut Pinot in a perfect ride from the breakaway up the steep Cote de la Croix Neuve. He launched his attack with 50km to go and almost lost the stage when Bettiol passed him with 2km to go. Matthews dug deep in sweltering conditions to reach the summit first and slid over the final 1.5km to claim victory.

Yellow jersey holder Jonas Vingegaard twice held off attacks from GC contender and reigning Tour de France champion Tadej Pogacar to keep his lead intact, but Geraint Thomas continued to slide off the lead despite finishing third in the overall rating. A remarkable drive from South Africa’s Louis Meintjes put him in the top-10 of the GC as he finished over 10 minutes ahead of his other contenders.

Today the likes of Fabio Jakobsen, Dylan Groenewegen and Jasper Philipsen will be aiming for a stage win here, but one man stands in their way. Wout van Aert has already won two stages of this year’s race and will be looking to continue his dominance in the green jersey competition. Will someone be able to beat him to Carcassonne?
