The riders face one final week at the Tour de France. Six stages to survive. Six chances for a stage win. Six opportunities to make a move on the green, polka and yellow jerseys. We’ve got you covered from Le Puy-en-Velay to Paris.
We hoped for crosswinds and the weather gods delivered. Team Sky bossed the echelons but Sunweb delivered on both stage win and green jersey ambitions.
A triumvirate of iconic Alpine climbs, an attacking Alberto Contador and a wonderful victory for Jumbo Bee Primoz Roglic. Kittel’s dream of of green is dashed and the fight for yellow is still close.
Last day in the rarefied air of the high mountains and last chance to shake the podium. Warren Barguil seals the polka dot jersey with a blazing win atop the Izoard. Romain Bardet and Rigoberto Uran try but no one can shake Froome.
Longest stage of the Tour. GC riders take a back seat as the breakaway makes it all the way to the line. Edvald Boasson Hagen takes the right way around the roundabout and solos to victory – third time lucky!
The race of truth hinged upon a-single-second: one for Maciej Bodnar‘s (Bora-hansgrohe) victory and one a between GC podium and 4th.
The traditional celebratory procession into Paris before the last, fast unleash on the Champs–Élysées. It’s joy for Team Sky and LottoNL-Jumbo’s Dylan Groenwegen grabs the sprinter’s bragging rights.
