Next stage

The first week will end with a brutal stage that can move the general classification... if Tadej Pogacar's rivals want it. The roughness of the mountains will shake the riders, who in the first 20 kilometers will have just climbed the second category Côte de Domancy and after the intermediate sprint in Praz-Sur-Arly, come four more passes: the first category Col des Saisies, the Col du Pré, out of category, then the climb to the second category Cormet de Roselend and the first category Montée de Tignes, 1.9 kilometers from the finish line.

Resume of seven stage

Matej Mohoric and a victory for the breakaway

177 riders took the start in the last stage of the 2021 Tour de France, which covered 249.1 kilometers between Vierzon and Le Creusot, the longest of the entire competition. 29 riders broke away from the 40th kilometer, where names like Wout van Aert (Jumbo Visma), Vincenzo Nibali (Trek Segafredo), Simon Yates (BikeExchange) and even líder Mathieu Van Der Poel himself stood out.

While the pelotonón rode very calmly, the escapees managed to have an advantage of up to 7'30". Mark Cavendish wonó the intermediate sprint in Saint-Benin-d’Azy, but then it was Matej Mohoric (Bahrain Victorious), who startedó to show himself as favorite. The race would be defined on the ramps of Signal d'Uchon, where the Slovenian would go solo and end up winning all the mountain passes; a that were disputed to become owner of the jersey that distinguishes the leader of that classification and also with a stage in which he was not caught since his escape.

Speaking already of the favorites, Richard Carapaz tried an attack that did not bear fruit, as he was caught arriving at the finish line by the rest of the group. On the other hand, Primoz Roglic had a bad day and ended up losing almost four minutes, so he practically says goodbye to the fight for this year's Tour.
