On the final mountain stage once again Tadej Pogačar crushed his rivals to take an unprecedented 5th stage win. The previous day he openly stated he would let a break escape but his close rivals decided to race each other for the minor places so he had no choice other than to follow.

At the finish, obviously the strongest, he was not to gift the stage so took yet another win, his dominance almost complete.

Stage 21 is a time trial, the first time the race has ended this way since 1989 although there will be no repeat of the greatest finish in Tour history as the gap between Pogacar and second placed Vingegaard is just too large to close.

We have all the details for how to watch the Tour de France just below, including TV channels and free streams.

Simon Warren has been obsessed with cycling since the summer of 1989 after watching Greg Lemond battle Laurent Fignon in the Tour de France. Although not having what it took to beat the best, he found his forte was racing up hills and so began his fascination with steep roads. This resulted in his 2010’s best-selling 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs, followed to date by 14 more guides to vertical pain. Covering the British Isles, Belgium, France, Italy and Spain he has been riding and racing up hills and mountains for over 30 years now. He hosts talks, guides rides, has written columns for magazines and in 2020 released his first book of cycling routes, RIDE BRITAIN. Simon splits his time between working as a graphic designer and running his 100 Climbs brand and lives in Sheffield on the edge of the Peak District with his wife and two children.
