Team Sky star Chris Froome faces a fight if he’s to retain the 2017 Tour de France’s yellow jersey after stage 15 on Sunday, a particularly testing route that will threaten to rumble the general classification’s current order.

Froome snatched the overall lead back from ProTeam Astana rider Fabio Aru after finishing just a second behind stage 14-winner Michael Matthews on Saturday, and the Briton now boasts a 19-second advantage:

After Saturday’s transition away from the Pyrenees, Stage 15 features a much more difficult-to-navigate journey from Laissac-Severac l’Eglise to Le Puy-en-Velay in south-central France.

Riders from all corners of the general classification will be timing their surges on the lead with less than a week now left on the Tour, and Monday’s rest gives competitors all the more reason to chase the win in stage 15.

Here’s a look at the stage profile and route for Sunday, via CyclingnewsTV:
