It was 1975 and the organisers of the Tour de France turned the Champs-Elysees into an open air stadium for the finale of the greatest cycling show on earth.

For its 101st edition, the race will tackle its final lap on the "most beautiful avenue in the world" for the 40th time in succession. While Walter Godefroot opened the record, the most legendary names in the peloton, from Bernard Hinault to Greg LeMond won the final stage in Paris, not to mention Mark Cavendish, the record stage winner on "The Champs”. Watch out then for kilometre 81.5 when the bunch enters the last circuit for an exceptional moment of emotion. Eddy Seigneur won the last stage in 1994 for his first Tour: “It was my first Tour and I entered the Champs-Elysees in last place, exhausted. Then all of a sudden I found myself in a break and it went all the way and I sprinted for an unforgettable victory,” said the ex-rider turned sports director for Team IAM.

“Twenty years later, it would be great for a great French sprinter from Beauvais, like me to win on the Champs-Elysées again,” said Seigneur, in a nod to French champion Arnaud Demare.

  • 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.
