Vincenzo Nibali is the winner of the 101st Tour de France, a race he led for eighteen days out of twenty-one. It's also the big return of French riders on the final podium with Jean-Christophe Péraud and Thibaut Pinot second and third respectively. The last stage on the Champs-Elysées went to Marcel Kittel (Giant-Shimano) just like last year. The German outsprinted Alexander Kristoff in a spectacular final sprint on the Champs-Elysées.

“Those past few days, when I was asked which one was my best moment of the Tour, I anticipated that no feeling of happiness could be compared to what we feel on the podium at the Champs-Elysées. It's even more beautiful than what I could imagine. I want to dedicate this victory to my team and my family. Hadn't I had my wife Rachele and my baby girl Emma on my side, hadn't I grown up as a young cyclist with parents like mines, I'm not sure I would have made it to here. I have felt such a...

“I'm very happy to be once again on the podium of the Tour de France, for the third time in a row. I haven't won a stage but I'm satisfied with the green jersey. Every year is different. I'm happy with the form I had during this Tour. When I win, people say that I easily win but it's not true. This Tour has reminded everyone that I don't easily win bike races.”

Concours de puissance...

Il ne s'agit pas seulement d'une parade. Le Maillot Jaune, Vincenzo Nibali, ne se privera probablement pas de la dégustation d'une ou deux coupes de champagne sur sa route vers Paris, et les deux Français qui sont montés sur le podium du Tour, Jean-Christophe Péraud et Thibaut Pinot, profiteront eux-aussi de l'atmosphère décontractée de la procession, tout au moins pendant les premiers kilomètres au programme. Car en rentrant sur les Champs-Elysées, c'est une autre partie qui se...

The grand finale

This is the 40th stage finish of the Tour de France on the Champs-Elysées. Like most of his predecessors, Vincenzo Nibali underlined that the beauty of the Tour stands on the world's most beautiful avenue. Besides the celebrations of the overall win, the two Frenchmen on the podium, the honour roll, etc., there'll probably be one last bunch sprint finish as it's been the case in the last nine editions of the race. Marcel Kittel is a logical favourite. He already imposed himself in Paris...
