You can say this Tour de France was lopsided, or slightly boring in places, but one thing you can’t say is that it didn’t have any heart. There were tears and hugs at almost every stage and Paris was no different. Except it had babies to be kissed as well! This last Tour Tweets of the Week for 2021 is filled with joy, laughs, creativity, #couchpeloton and a celebration that we were all in it together. Enjoy!

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.
