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.

Stage 17

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.

Stage 18

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.

Stage 19

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 ChampsÉlysées. It’s joy for Team Sky and LottoNL-Jumbo’s Dylan Groenwegen grabs the sprinter’s bragging rights.
