Tour director Christian Prudhomme often says that there has to be something for everyone in the Tour, including the contenders for the green jersey. The sprinters who can deal with hills have already been considered: The finishes in Le Havre and Rodez are two stages for them. For stage 15, ASO is thinking about the pure sprinters, whose status has been boosted with a bonus toward the points classification for a stage victory. This is the last chance for the sprinters to shine before the Champs-Élysées.
