Stage 21: Montegron > Paris Champs-Élysées

The final stage. 103km. Flat. Should be over in a jiffy, right?

Are you new? There’s the champagne, the end-of-holidays “keep in touch, yeah?” vibe… Add to this, the late start time – because everybody loves seeing the Arc de Triomphe lit up more than they love starting the week with a decent night’s sleep, right? – and it’s a tough stage for the down under Couch Peloton. No racing until well after bedtime, no vaches, no interesting cheese… Our maillot jaune, Dean Thompson, suggested that some storms might spice things up, so get rain-dancing, folks! Perhaps Skoda will debut a new ad. Maybe the roadside randoms will gather together in flamingo costumes in the shape of a sundial. Or the farmers might bring their herds into town for the finale…

Thanks to the couch peloton for the good food, company and all the laughs over the past three weeks.
