Tour de France: Tadej Pogacar wins the Tour de France 2020


Traditionally, the leader is no longer attacked on the last stage. Also this year the peloton stuck to the rule and didn't cause any problems for Tadej Pogacar. The Champs-Élysées belonged to the sprinters.

The 21-year-old Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) won the 107th Tour de France, he is the youngest winner since Henri Cornet in 1904. The Slovene was traditionally not attacked on the last stage and wore the yellow jersey over 122.5 Kilometers from Mantes-La-Jolie to Paris on the Champs-Élysées.

He also won the white jersey of the best young professional and the mountain jersey.

On the prestigious arrival in Paris, Sam Bennett (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) sprinted to victory and also won the green jersey.

The Swiss Marc Hirschi (Team Sunweb) was named the most combative driver of the tour.

The Spanish Movistar team won the team championship.

Before the sharp start, the drivers rolled in their jerseys in front of the peloton.

Kévin Réza, the only black professional on the tour, was also allowed to be there.

The association of professionals had previously called for an anti-racism campaign. Before the start, the drivers wore masks with messages like "No to racism".

As expected, the last stage started quietly.

Pogacar had himself photographed with his team and arm in arm with Primoz Roglic (Team Jumbo-Visma), from whom he had removed the yellow jersey in a dramatic mountain time trial the day before.

The race picked up speed with the first lap in Paris, which is where the first attacks occurred.

The German professional Maximilian Schachmann (Bora-hansgrohe) pulled away from the peloton with three other drivers, but the quartet didn't get more than 20 seconds ahead.

On the last lap in the capital, the peloton formed the escape group.

It came to the mass sprint, which Bennett won by far.
