A Champs-Élysées victory should be on the resume of the greatest sprinters. Mark Cavendish took four stage wins in Paris, yet it’s been five editions since his last win. In 2013 and 2014 Marcel Kittel powered to victory, while another German was fastest in 2015 and 2016: André Greipel. Last year, young gun Dylan Groenewegen bested the field.
The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds. The intermediate sprint (at kilometre 76) does not come with a time bonus.
The 21st stage of the 2018 Tour de France starts at 16:20 and the finish is expected around 19:09 – both local times (scheduled times).
