Richie Porte (Trek-Segafredo) moved up to the final podium spot after a stellar time trial, while Pogačar will take home both the mountain and young rider's jerseys. The green jersey race is all but over, with Sam Bennett (Deceuninck-QuickStep) looking to secure his win in Paris.

Stage 21 will be a largely ceremonial stage, but there will be a sprint finish on the Champs-Élysées to conclude the Grand Boucle.
