Froome still feeling strong

Sunday's stage 15 saw no changes at the top of the general classification with the Team Sky rider crossing the line in the safety of the peloton along with his GC rivals.

Froome was grateful to move on from Saturday's incident, when a member of the crowd threw a cup of urine in his face during the day's stage.  

"It was a good day out there and a great atmosphere out on the roads," the Kenyan-born rider said on cyclingnews.com. 

"There were no unfortunate incidents today. We're here to do a job and obviously that takes preference. What happened yesterday was unfortunate and hopefully that's not going to happen again now.
 
"If you think, before the Champs Elysees we've got five real racing stages left so we're really into the tail end of the race now. You can see the tired bodies out there on the road. I think we're in an extremely fortunate position, we've still got nine riders, everyone is fit and healthy. We're just hoping to get through to the next rest day and then go for the last part of the race."

Froome still has a three minute and 10 second advantage over Nairo Quintana and 3:32 over Tejay van Garderen.
