- Stage 2: 3h 43' 11" (actual), 3h 51' 28" (prediction), 08' 17" slow (3.71% error)
Given that cyclists were still crossing the finish line 17 minutes after Bakelants, our prediction hit the average cyclist today instead of today's elite cyclist. An error under 4% isn't bad, but after such a successful first stage, anything worse looks bad by comparison.
Bakelants's average speed is given below.
- Stage 2: 11.65 m/s (41.94 kph or 20.06 mph)
- Stage 3: 3h 44' 26" (prediction)
The first two stage winners have been a bit faster than we thought. I won't be surprised if tomorrow's winner edges our time once again. Enjoy the last day of the race on Corsica!
