2011 Tour de France Standings Update, Stage 15: Thomas Voeckler Remains In Yellow

The 2011 Tour de France heads into Gap, crosses the Col de Manse, then drops down again into the finish after completing a small circuit on Monday. Stage 16 is for the climbers and is known as a place where something completely unexpected usually happens.

Sunday was yet another big day for the Manx Missile, Mark Cavendish, as the Englishman has sprinted his way to his fourth win in the 2011 Tour de France and the 19th Tour win of his career, out-sprinting the field to take Stage 15. Tyler Ferrar and Alessandro Petacchi gave him a run for his money, finishing in second and third and within a bike length of the winner.

Here is the general classification ahead of Stage 16.
