Tour de France 2014 - 5-27 July

28 July, 2014

Stage 21 : Évry - Paris Champs-Élysées, 136 km

Kittel reigns on The Champs Élysées, Nibali becomes only the sixth rider to win all three Grand Tours.

18 stages after first pulling on the yellow jersey, and surrounded by jubilant teammates Vincenzo Nibali could final claim what everyone else new to be inevitable a week earlier - a place on the top step of the podium as the winner of the 101st Tour de France. French pride had been restored with the [relatively] safe arrival of Jean-Christophe Péraud and Thibaut Pinot to claim second and third respectively, while Marcel Kittel (Giant-Shimano) earned a second straight on the Champs-Elysées in a spectacular final sprint.

Jens Voigt signs off with a flourish

Following a 32km/h champagne-bouyed parade to the outskirts of Paris Sylvain Chavanel (IAM Cycling) gave French fans soemthign to cheer about by being the first to attack but then retired to the bunch handing the stage to Jens Voigt (Trek) who attacked for what would be the last time in the Tour de France. The 43 year old has annouced his retirement from professional racing.

It was an opportunity with a pretty a use-by date and after a lap out front the German won the last intermediate sprint of his last Tour de France was swallowed up by a peloton short of time and long on ambition.

The sudden quickeing of pace saw Jean-Christophe Péraud (AG2R-La Mondiale) slip out on a curve with 43km to go. While France and his team held their breath teh former mountain biker picked himself and remounted though hos nerves and jersey had taken a beating. With the help of three team-mates, he made his way back to the pack five kilometres later. Four riders then took the lead with 36km to go: Richie Porte (Sky), Michael Morkov (Tinkoff), José Serpa (Lampre) and Armindo Fonseca (Bretagne).

Kittel makes it four

Porte, Morkov and Serpa persisted as long as they could but one by one the break fell to the chase with Porte was the last member of this breakaway to be caught, with 7.5km to go. His compatriot Simon Clarke (Orica) was the last man to try to escape 5km before the end. But the inevitable bunch gallop saw the domination of Giant-Shimano in the lead out.

As the peloton rounded the last corner off the Place de la Concorde and onto the Champs-Elysées Alexander Kristoff had a small advantage, however, with just metres to go Marcel Kittel kicked to emerge winner of stage 21, adding one success to the three he took in the first week of the Tour.
