Sagan gets us under 1%!

I always think of Peter Sagan as coming in second.  There are so many stages of the Tour de France that I remember Sagan just coming up short.  That wasn't the case today as The Terminator took Stage 2.  Below is Sagan's winning time and a comparison with our prediction.
  • Stage 2:  4h 20' 51" (actual), 4h 22' 59" (prediction), 02' 08" slow (0.82% error)
We're always excited to be under 1%!  Sagan's average speed is given below.
  • Stage 2:  11.69 m/s (42.09 kph or 26.16 mph)
 Sagan now has the yellow and green jerseys.  Mark Cavendish sits in 75th place out of 198 riders.

Tomorrow's Stage 3 is 223.5 km (138.9 mi) long and classified as flat.  Beginning on the coast at Granville, the stage takes riders south to the city of Angers.  Our prediction is given below.
  • Stage 3:  5h 07' 03" (prediction)
Our prediction is a bit of a challenge to the cyclists.  We want to see a rider finish the stage close to five hours.  That's a long time in the saddle!
