The 2019 Tour de France in 100 frames

by CyclingTips

The 106th edition of the Tour de France could possibly go down as the greatest in history. Barring the final mountain stages that were cut short due to mother nature, the drama, the surprise, the plot twists, the extraordinary characters and the pure sporting magnificence make it unforgettable. A better movie script couldn’t have been written.

With two Frenchmen animating and leading the race and with the way they plunged in their glory, it couldn’t have been a ‘more French race’ to reinvigorate the nation’s imagination and support. Some say that Alaphilippe won the Tour de France by popular vote. It was a shame that Egan Bernal, the youngest Tour winner ever, didn’t get to show his dominance in a truncated tour, but history will soon forget.

If you’re feeling the post-Tour melancholy this week, we hope this photo gallery by our incredibly talented and hard-working photographers gets you through the day.

From all of us here at CyclingTips, thank you for following and we hope you enjoyed our coverage.

Until next year, vive le Tour
