Paris Champs-Élysées

Paris Champs-Élysées

The shivers witnessed as the pack zooms by on the final circuit are both due to the express visit or the monuments it has to offer like the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel tower or the Musée du Louvre, but also the power of the link created between the Tour and the city that saw it emerge, grow and blossom on its great avenues. Since 1975, the Avenue des Champs-Élysées has become the place to win for the best sprinters in the world. The TV viewers know it just too well, the last stage of the Tour is one of the most watched of the Tour.
