On a day in which Sepp Kuss (Jumbo-Visma) became the first American since Tyler Farrar in 2011 to win a stage in the Tour de France, there were relatively few major time gaps between the overall contenders on stage 15 to Andorra.

The most significant shift came for Frenchman Guillaume Martin (Cofidis) who dropped from second overall to ninth after he was distanced on the descent before the final climb of the Col de Beixalis.
