Stage 21Chantilly / Paris Champs-Élysées

Start 16h35 (Local time)

Key moments

Like last year, André Greipel won the prestigious conclusive stage on the Champs-Elysées as he outsprinted Peter Sagan and Alexander Kristoff. This is the first win of the German national champion at the Tour de France this year and his eleventh in total. Chris Froome won his third Tour de France after 2013 and 2015 to rejoin Philippe Thys, Louison Bobet and Greg LeMond in the record books one line below five-time winners Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault and Miguel...

“I've done the Tour three times and the podium three times. I can only be happy. After so many kilometers, so much work, to be on the podium is gratifying and always a success. Froome was untouchable and much superior on this Tour. Team Sky has always raced at a high level. They have riders of a big potential and they know how to race as a team. I'm disappointed to not have been able to create more of spectacle. Some of my physique has gone missing. I've suffered from allergies. It takes...

"It's a big moment. My joy is enormous, for me and for the team but I'm yet to realize what happened. I had mixed feelings after the Dauphiné and everything went well here. I've changed a few things. In previous years, I left the Tour with some frustrations but there's nothing like that today. I only have to enjoy the moment. I found the podium ceremony very impressive in 2014 for the teams' classification and also for the super combative prize last year. This result is above the others. I...

Adam Yates: «I'm the same»

“It's a big honour to be here. On TV it might look like an easy stage but it wasn't. After three week, nothing has changed. I'm the same. I live it day by day. I'm not thinking of the future.”

“After five years, it's hard to say goodbye to the team but we have done our best: the top 10 with Roman [Kreuziger], Peter's jersey and mine. That's my second one but not my last one. We've done a great team work. It's like if it was my first time. I'm happy, especially after the back luck we had at the beginning. Cycling is a very hard sport, particularly mentally. You have to be very strong.”

“My best memories of this Tour? There are too many: the three stage wins, the great work of the team and tonight's party in Paris. We're all very happy. The Olympic Games are next for me. I'll go back to the roots [mountain biking].”

Chris Froome said in this speech to the public: “My son Kellan: this victory is for you. My thoughts go again to those who lost their lives in the tragedy in Nice. The values of sport are so important to a free society. We all love the Tour de France. We love the Tour because it's unpredictable. But we love the more for what stays the same: the passion of the fans from every nation along the road side, the beauty of the French countryside and the bonds of friendship created through a true...

“I can't describe it. I'm just super proud of what we've achieved today. I've raced for three weeks for that. The team kept believing in me. We've tried many times and we walk away from the Tour with two stage wins, with Thomas De Gendt and myself. This morning, we had a good plan. There was a head wind at the end. I just tried to stay calm. Once we hit the finale, we were one guy too short so I chose to follow Alexander Kristoff who was the strongest. But this is another stage win at the...

There's one last stage remaining. It's a prestigious one with the Arc de Triomphe as a backdrop and the Champs-Elysées to welcome the 175 finishers of the Tour de France. This is a record – the previous highest number was 170 in 2010. The grand finale is a parade but also the sprinters' queen stage, as Mark Cavendish likes to describe it. But the most successful of them all this year (3 victories) has pulled out in order to gear up for the Olympic Games on the track. Therefore, only Peter...
