The Champs-Élysées is the most famous finish in cycling.
The Tour de France has concluded on France’s most iconic avenue every year since 1975.
And, for the 100th edition of the race, the final stage finished at dusk for the first time, with a floodlit sprint won by Marcel Kittel (Argos-Shimano) to end Mark Cavendish’s (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) run of four successive victories.
The day was reserved, however, for Chris Froome. These pictures from Simon Wilkinson and Dave Winter tell the story of a memorable end to a race that will live long in the mind.
