The final stage of the Tour de France is a 102 kilometer parade of sorts as the riders present themselves to the grandest street in the world, the Champs-Elysees. Like warriors returning from battle they will drink champagne and ride arm in arm. Except for the sprinters.
On this 102.5 kilometer stage all has been decided except for the green jersey of the sprinters. It may be a battle to the finish as Mark Cavendish (HTC-Columbia) looks to snag his 15th Tour de France stage win, and his 5th in 2010- and in so doing possibly taking the green jersey from Alessandro Petacchi (Lamre-Farnese Vini).
