Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) has crossed safely the finish line at the Champs-Elysees and secured his second position at the overall classification at the 2018 Tour de France.

This has been an outstanding season for the rider, who also finished second at the last edition of the Giro d'Italia. The 2018 edition of the Grande Boucle was the first attempt of Dumoulin to fight for a GC position in the race.

"Before today, the Tour de France was already a success for us and it was more than we had all hoped for," said Dumoulin after the podium ceremony. "To finish second here is really special and I’m genuinely really happy with the result.

"If someone told me that after such a hard Giro I would be on the podium at the Tour de France, I would have immediately signed for it. We came into the race really open, of course, we were going for the GC but not specifically the podium so I’m super happy with the outcome and proud of what me and the team have achieved here."
