Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) has taken the victory of the last stage of the Tour de France, his third one in this edition of the race.

The last stage of the French grand tour was the usual ride to Paris, in which everybody gets to celebrate that they made it till the end before things get a bit more serious in the Champs-Élysées. Jumbo-Visma controlled the pack at the last curve and put Van Aert in a good position ahead of the final sprint, and the rider delivered, crossing the finish line ahead of Jasper Philipsen and Mark Cavendish.

"Actually, I can’t believe it," said Van Aert. "This Tour de France has been amazing. It has been such a rollercoaster. To finish with three victories in my pocket is just out of my expectations. A victory like this is priceless, although I have to catch my flight to Tokyo tonight.

"Thanks to my small team and especially to Mike Teunissen, who put me in the perfect position ahead of the sprint. It was key to be delivered on a good position after the final right-hand turn. I was confident Mike could do it, and he did it perfectly."
