Comment from race director, Christian Prudhomme: “From the Château de Chantilly to the Arc de Triomphe, the last act will be quite prestigious. The start of the final stage wasn’t given from the north of Paris since 1984. At the time, it was in Pantin. It’ll therefore invite the riders to discover new areas of the capital. Will that however trouble the plans of the sprinters on the Champs-Élysées? That remains to be seen.”
