France’s Pierrick Fedrigo won stage 15 of the Tour de France in Pau after outsprinting American Christian Vande Velde from a break. It was a fourth career Tour stage win for 33-year-old FDJ-BigMat rider Fedrigo – whose last victory on the Tour came on the race’s previous visit to Pau back in 2010. Fedrigo launched his decisive attack from a six-man group with 5km remaining of the short and lumpy 158km stage in south-west France. Garmin-Sharp’s Vande Velde managed to latch onto the Frenchman’s wheel but had no answer when Fedrigo jumped out of the saddle in the closing metres. Another Frenchman, Thomas Voeckler (Europcar), took third place ahead of Denmark’s Nikki Sorensen (Saxo Bank-Tinkoff), 12 seconds back.
