Cycling fans will flock to the Champs-Elysees in Paris on Sunday July 22nd, when the 99th Tour de France is set to reach its thrilling conclusion.
The world’s most famous cycling event has finished on the famous thoroughfare every year since 1975, offering spectators a chance to see an adrenaline-fuelled sprint at close quarters.
Although the overall outcome of the Tour is usually decided before this point, winning the final stage in Paris is a highly prestigious accolade in itself.
Great Britain’s Mark Cavendish has triumphed on the Champs-Elysees for the last three years.
In 2011, he became the first British rider in history to claim the green jersey for the Tour de France’s best sprinter, having won five stages and amassed 334 points.
The final stage of this year’s Tour is set to begin outside Paris in the town of Rambouillet.
Overall, the race will cover a distance of 3,479 kilometres as the cyclists make their way through the 20 stages and one prologue.
Spectators planning to cheer them on as they approach the finish line in central Paris on the final day are advised to arrive early to ensure they get the best view.
