Thanks very much for joining us today. Tomorrow's a much-needed rest day before the riders take on Tuesday's Stage 16 from Le Puy en Velay to Romans Sur Isere. A bumpy profile will offer opportunities for another successful breakaways, but the sprinters' teams will have their sights set on a bunch sprint in a relatively flat run-in. You can watch it in full on Eurosport 1 and Eurosport Player, while Felix Lowe will return to provide extensive coverage right here. Catch you then.

So Martin takes 12 seconds off Froome, but the Team Sky man remains in yellow. Nairo Quintana is still out on the road after a very disappointing day for the Movistar team leader.
0km
Froome attacks with the line in sight... but he doesn't open up a significant enough gap to take time off his rivals.
0km
Martin is going to take some time back today, he's not going to be caught by Froome and co.
0km
Dan Martin and a small group have pulled clear of the GC group, but none of the major contenders have gone with him. The yellow jersey is looking pretty safe for Chris Froome as things stand.

Diego Ulissi wins the sprint for second place. Should the chasing group have caught Mollema? Probably. But great credit to the Dutch rider for holding on for a terrific victory.

Bauke Mollema wins Stage 15!
1km
They're not going to catch Mollema here. The finish is in sight and he can afford a little smile.
2km
"Mollema does a lot of reading in his spare time... but it's the record books he's going to be writing himself into today," great stuff from Rob Hatch.
3km
Mollema is still out on his own. He's only got about 200m on the chasers, but looks incredibly strong. Can he pull off a remarkable win?
5km
Bauke Mollema is still out on his own at the head of the field, but he's being chased down by a four-man group containing the impressive Warren Barguil.
6km
This time it's Dan Martin who attacks off the front of the peloton, and the remarkable Irishman opens up a proper gap this time.
7km
Yates attacks again, but fails to stay away once more. Nobody's willing to let him go, which is a real compliment to the young Brit.
9km
Simon Yates has a dig on the big climb and opens up a gap between the rest of the big names back in the yellow jersey group. He's gradually brought back in, but looks far fresher than some of the more experienced riders around him.

The GC contenders are all together and it's going to take some spectacular on the short, sharp climb up the Cote de Saint-Vidal or on the run-in to Le Puy-en-Velay to take time off Froome.
