Mainly a ceremonial dash into the capital, the final stage offers a chance for the sprinters to strut their stuff in front of the massive crowds lining the Champs Elysees - this was the case in 2003 as Baden Cooke and Robbie McEwen went shoulder-to-shoulder to fight out the final allocation of points. Boonen won this stage last year, and he should be back for more of the same this year. It's generally all over bar the shouting, but there'll be plenty of shouting no matter who takes their place on the top step of the podium, and with plenty of sunshine on the Champs Elysees, it'll be happy days in fair Paris.
