Today’s stage marked the end of a brutal and exciting Grand Tour. The riders finished the day with a ceremonial circuit through Paris, and it was evident that this year’s format (complete with a team time trial, cobble stage, and a short but unrelenting mountain stage) had taken its toll on the riders over the last three weeks of racing.

The Champs-Élysées circuit was, as always, a scene to behold, with Katusha-Alpecin’s Alexander Kristoff taking the final win of the Tour, followed by Trek’s John Degenkolb and Arnaud Démare (Groupama- FDJ).

But the GC standings had largely been set days earlier, with Team Sky’s Geraint Thomas securing his first Tour de France win, and fellow teammate and early race favorite Chris Froome finishing in third behind Sunweb’s Tom Dumoulin.

Julian Alaphilippe took first prize as King of the Mountains, Peter Sagan easily commanded the Green Jersey, Pierre Latour took home the honors of Best Young Rider, Mikel Landa won Most Aggressive Rider and the team competition was won handily by the Movistar Team.
