The 2015 Tour de France was the 102nd edition of the race, one of cycling's Grand Tours. The race took place from 4 July to 26 July 2015, starting in Utrecht in the Netherlands and finishing on the Champs-Élysées in Paris.[1]

All seventeen UCI WorldTeams were automatically invited and were obliged to attend the race. In January 2015, five UCI Professional Continental teams were given wildcard places into the race by the race organisers – Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO) – to complete the 22-team peloton.[2] Among the wildcard teams was MTN–Qhubeka, the first African trade team to participate in the Tour.[3] As each team was entitled to enter nine riders, the peloton on the first stage consisted of 198 riders.[4] These came from 32 countries. 41 riders – approximately a fifth of the peloton – were French; no other nation had more than 20 riders in the race.[5] Merhawi Kudus and Daniel Teklehaimanot were the first ever Eritrean riders to participate in the Tour.[6]

The number of riders per nation participated in the 2015 Tour de France:
  20+
  10–19
  2–9
  1

160 riders completed the final stage in Paris, with 38 of the riders failing to finish the race.[7] The race was won by Chris Froome (Team Sky), the champion from the 2013 Tour. Froome first took the lead of the race following the third stage – the first uphill finish of the race. He lost the yellow jersey of the race leader to Tony Martin (Etixx–Quick-Step) at the end of the fourth stage, but Martin's withdrawal from the race after a crash at the end of the sixth stage put Froome back into the lead. He extended this lead during the stages in the Pyrenees and defended it successfully against attacks from Nairo Quintana (Movistar Team) during the final stages that took place in the Alps.[8] Quintana finished second, 1 minute and 12 seconds behind Froome, with Quintana's teammate Alejandro Valverde in third.[9] Quintana won the competition for the best young rider.[10] The points classification was won for the fourth consecutive year by Peter Sagan (Tinkoff–Saxo), although he failed to win any stages during the race.[11] As well as winning the general classification, Froome won the mountains classification, while Movistar won the team classification.[10]

Teams

The 17 UCI WorldTeams were automatically invited to participate in the Tour. In addition, Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO), the race organisers, invited five wildcard teams.[2] Three of the teams (Team Europcar, Cofidis and Bretagne–Séché Environnement) were prominent French teams. The race director, Christian Prudhomme, pointed to Europcar's strength as a team and the presence of several prominent French riders and to Cofidis's Nacer Bouhanni as reasons for their inclusion. He also recalled Bretagne–Séché Environnement's performance in 2014 and the team's base in Brittany, a region used by the 2015 race. Bora–Argon 18 had also performed strongly in 2014 and, as a German-based team, their presence was important as ASO had recently signed a new broadcast agreement with ARD, a German broadcaster. The final team to be invited was MTN–Qhubeka, who made their debut in the Tour and were the first African trade team ever to participate in the race. Prudhomme explained that their invitation was part of ASO's strategy to build cycling's popularity in Africa.[3]
