Tour de France 2015 Route stage 21: Sèvres - Paris
Sunday, July 26, 2015 - The 102nd Tour de France is almost done. Without a doucht, the 21st and final stage brings eight blasting laps on the Champs Elysees, crowned with a bunch sprint. Kittel or Cav?
All big guns should have a Champs-Elysees sprint victory on their palmares. Mark Cavendish has four, but it’s been awhile as it was Marcel Kittel outsprinting the bunch in 2013 and 2014. The most famous sprinter who never won in Paris is six-fold green jersey winner Erik Zabel.
The final stage is only 107 kilometres and as per usual the road to the Champs-Elysees is filled with chatting, champagne and an occasional cigar (when Purito feels like it). But once in Paris the riders scrape the last bits of energy out of their tired legs and try to escape one after the other. Usually with no success. The current Astana-boss Alexander Vinokourov was the last to stay ahead of the unleashed pack. We’re talking 2005 now.
