The grand finale

Sporting stakes27.07.2014Stage 21- Évry / Paris Champs-Élysées

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 last year and he's in search of his fourth victory to equal his score of 2013. But Peter Sagan is hungry. He's got one last chance to win a stage. He wants it badly even though he won't leave the Tour empty handed as the green jersey is already his for the third consecutive year. It's unsure whether Bryan Coquard or Alexander Kristoff will come second in the points' classification. The Frenchman is suspected to target the intermediate sprint and the Norwegian to beat him in the final one.

  • Kittel doubles up, Nibali wins the Tour

    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.
