Stage 21: Montereau-Fault-Yonne - Paris Champs-Élysées
'Tis done, the 96th Grande Boucle is over. The final stage into Paris has always meant success for some - as well as relief for many others - and the champagne will once again flow for all. There is one more treasure at stake today: the highly-valued stage win on the Champs-Élysées. With its false-flat uphill cobbles between the Place de la Concorde and the Arc de Triomphe, the 'world’s most beautiful avenue' is always a spectacular finish of the Tour, whether a sprinter or a puncher wins.

Cav does well under pressure, so I’m sure he can manage this feat.
Of course, I’m hoping for a little beginner’s luck for Tyler Farrar.
