Dylan Groenewegen claimed the eighth bunch sprint victory of the 104th Tour de France as he outclassed André Greipel who concludes the Tour de France without a stage win for the first time. Delivering LottoNL-Jumbo's second victory after Primoz Roglic in Serre-Chevalier and the fiftieth for the Dutch squad since they first participated in the Tour in 1984, he's the first Dutchman to win on the Champs-Elysées since Jean-Paul van Poppel in 1988. Chris Froome was declared the overall winner...read more
“My dream was to win a stage of the Tour de France. Two stage wins and the polka dot jersey, that's beyond my dreams. It's been an exceptional Tour. Everything's crazy: riding on the Champs-Elysées with the polka dot jersey, being on the podium in front of the Arc de Triomphe… Soon I'll focus on other goals.”read more
“This place on the podium is beautiful and brings me a lot of joy. For me the Tour is much higher than the other races. There are 21 days of racing. It's a race that has a lot of history. No other cycling event has the same level of competition as the Tour.”read more
“I had the opportunity to go for the green jersey and I took that opportunity with both hands. Maybe next year I'll have other objectives than the Tour de France but for now I want to enjoy this green jersey. With Tom Dumoulin winning the pink jersey [at the Giro d'Italia], Warren Barguil winning the polka dot jersey and myself the green, three jerseys within one year is a huge achievement.”read more
“I can be proud of making the podium of the world's biggest race for the second time. I'm happy to have his experience at the age of 26. It gives me a lot of confidence for the future. I'll continue working and I won't prevent myself from dreaming big. In the mountains, I was part of the fight and I enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I had a bad day yesterday.”read more
“This is an amazing place for the sprinters. To win on the Champs-Elysées makes it a perfect day. We're only five riders in the team but it was enough today. They did a great job. They put me in a good position, on the wheel of Alexander Kristoff and then I rushed to the finish line. This is my first stage win at the Tour. When I was young, I was looking at the Champs-Elysées stage on TV. Now I'm the winner here, it's wonderful.”read more
“It's just an amazing feeling. The Champs-Elysées never disappoints. There's something magical about it when you spend three weeks thinking of this moment. It's just rewarding. It's amazing to see my wife and my son again after several months on the road. Each time I've won the Tour, it has been so unique. All my victories are so special in their own ways. This one will be remembered as the closest and more hard fought of them. It's a huge honor to be mentioned in the same sentence as...read more
There's one last stage remaining. It's probably the most prestigious with the Arc de Triomphe as a backdrop and the Champs-Elysées to welcome the 167 finishers of the Tour de France, eight less than last year. This year's Parisian finale with Chris Froome in the yellow jersey for the fourth time after 2013, 2015 and 2016 includes the promotion of the French bid for the 2014 Olympic Games. Therefore, the peloton will ride through the Grand Palais, the venue set to host fencing and taekwondo....read more
