Kittel wins Stage 21

Marcel Kittel (Argos-Shimano) sprinted to victory in the final stage of this year’s Tour de France, just ahead of Andre Greipel (Lotto Belisol) and Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma Quickstep), ending Mark Cavendish’s four-year winning streak on the Champs-Elysees. Peter Sagan (Cannondale) got fourth. This was Kittel’s fourth stage win of this year’s Tour.

Froome Chris Froome (Sky) finished in the same time as the pack and is now the Tour de France champion. Joining Froome on the podium will be Nairo Quintana (Movistar) and Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha). The night-time awards ceremony is about to begin and will include fireworks and a light show.
