Tour de France 2021: Stage 21 – Wout van Aert takes the Champs; Pogacar takes the Tour

This year’s Tour de France ended, of course, on the Champs-Elysees with Jumbo-Visma’s answer to Iron Man, Wout van Aert, took his third stage win of this Tour, disappointing a third placed Mark Cavendish. A lot of fans are sad that Cav couldn’t surpass Eddy Merckx‘s record for Tour stage wins this year, but hey, look on the bright side – he’ll almost certainly be back next year … Tadej Pogacar takes home his second consecutive maillot jaune, with Jonas Vingegaard and Richard Carapaz flanking him on the podium.

To be in Paris in July …

The Jerseys

Four jerseys … three of which have gone to Tadej Pogacar. And one that went to Mark Cavendish.


Green jersey – Mark Cavendish might not have taken that 35th win today, but he still had a magnificent (and unexpected) Tour de France with 4 stages and winning his second green jersey TEN years after his first.


Super Combatif, as reported yesterday, went to Franck Bonnamour.

Team ranking went to Bahrain Victorious
