Le Tour 2016 – Stage 21 et fini

Tour de FranceChantilly to Paris Champs Élysées

Distance: 113 kilometers.

This is the final ‘parade’ that begins with chanpagne and ends with an eight lap sprint in Paris. There is the Cat 4 Côte de l’Ermitage halfway to Paris, but the only real racing will be among the sprinters for the stage win.

André Greipel took his second straight Champs Élysées finish, Peter Sagan was selected as the Super-Combative rider and Chris Froome won his third Tour, the first Briton to do so.

Tony Martin had to drop out because of knee pain from an earlier injury, but 174 riders finished the race.
