Tour de France 2020: Stage 21 – Bennett takes champs and green; Pogacar takes all the rest

It was an amazing Tour de France for all kinds of reasons. And, to be honest, one of the most tense. Some stages just felt like something was brewing … other stages it all kicked off big time. Today, Tadej Pogacar officially won the 2020 Tour de France, along with the KOM and young rider’s jersey. And Sam Bennett sealed a great TdF for himself with a win – in the green jersey – on the Champs. Chapeau, guys!

The victory on the Champs

I think the tweets say it all for this review … so I’ll let all you tweeters tell the story of the final stage of the 2020 Tour de France

Quite a change of fortune
