Stage 11 - November 11: Pô - Ouagadougou, 156.5 km

French win last stage but Legtenberg holds on to yellow

The 15th Tour du Faso has ended in overall victory to Dutchman Joost Legtenberg (Marco Polo CC), winner of the very first stage. Legtenberg and his team withstood the challenge from Morrocan Abdelati Saadoune after a long battle. Third overall went to Maarten Tjallingii, also from the Marco Polo team.

Today's final stage that finished in the Burkina capital of Ouagadougou was won by Frenchman Johann Sorel (Seine Maritime), who covered the 156 kilometres in 3:37:20, sprinting home ahead of Christof Marien (Aliplast) and Abdelati Saadoune (Morocco). The stage finished in a bunch sprint after a large breakaway was caught with 500 metres to go.

In the other classifications, Legtenberg also won the points jersey, while Christof Marien was the sprint king. Best young rider went to Abdelati Saadoune, who was also the best African rider. Burkina's Mahamadi Sawadogo was awarded the Best UEMOA rider. The team's classification was easily won by the Marco Polo Team, with Morroco over 26 minutes behind them in second place.
