The 87th Tour de France is finally over, with the 3,661 km journey of the 128 riders left in the race finishing in Paris today. No-one had the misfortune to crash, and there was essentially no change in any of the classifications. Lance Armstrong, sporting a long wig, yellow gloves, shorts, jersey, and spokes at the start, kept his lead as expected and took out his second successive Tour de France in front of an enormous crowd lining the Champs Elysées. Any doubts that his win last year was diminished due to lesser competition were completely erased over the past three weeks, as one by one he dispatched his rivals.

The closing stage of Le Tour is traditionally a parade for the riders and fans alike, finishing along Paris' most famous avenue, the Champs Elysées. This year was a little different in that the race actually started in Paris, with the Village Depart situated under the Eiffel Tower. This is only the second time in the race's history that a stage has started in Paris, the other being in 1975 when Walter Godefroot won the stage.

Today, Mr Godefroot urged his Telekom team to do their level best to keep the race together so that Maillot Vert, Erik Zabel could try for his second stage win, and also become the German with the most Tour stage wins (Rudi Altig and Zabel both have 8). In the end it wasn't to be, as Zabel took second to Mapei's Stefano Zanini - a fine performance by the team who have had a moderate amount of the spoils in this year's Tour.

The riders' parade lasted for nearly two hours, as the peloton was content to roll along around various parts of Paris at a little over 30 km/h. For the record, the first 61 kilometres was covered in just under an hour and 50 minutes, which meant that the last 77 was done in 1'24 - an average of 55 kilometres an hour. When these boys turn on the pace, it ain't slow.

The attacks began with Christophe Agnolutto (Ag2r), winner of stage 7 and one of the most aggressive riders of this year's Tour. He took a flyer, but only succeeded in increasing the speed, as eight other riders countered. Thierry Marichal (Lotto), Pascal Derame (Bonjour), Anthony Morin (CA), the irrepressible Erik Dekker (Rabo), Xavier Jan (FdJ), Pascal Chanteur (Ag2r), Alex Vinokourov (Telekom), and Cedric Vasseur acting as a policeman for the US Postal team, were the riders who escaped for a while. Their gap grew to 20 seconds, and there it stayed for some time as the bunch were not yet ready to close it.

Finally, the efforts of Polti, Farm Frites, US Postal and Telekom brought things back together with 36 kilometres to go. There was to be no spoiling of the sprinter's party just yet. However, there was non-stop attacking after this until a group of four stuck together with 29 kilometres left in the race. Masimilliano Apollonio (Vini Caldirola) was joined by Jens Voigt (CA), Agnolutto, and Dave Millar (Cofidis) who was trying to emulate his stage one victory.

These riders worked in perfect formation, holding 15 seconds to a peloton that was hungry for sprint finale. The inevitable closure came with one 6.5 kilometre lap to go, and it was made by Jan Ullrich who was doing an enormous amount of work for his sprinter Zabel. The Telekom train faltered however, as they had spent too many of their riders earlier on, and did not have a long leadout for Zabel. In fact it was the Mapei squad who led onto the final straight, with Dutchman Max Van Heeswijk and Freddy Rodriguez on his wheel. Rodriguez was looking like a winner, but in fact he was setting things up for the powerful Stefano Zanini, who at last found his sprinting legs on the Champs Elysées.

The final result - Zanini first, followed by a desperate Zabel, with Vainsteins (Vini Caldirola), Rodriguez and Van Heeswijk behind. US Champion Rodriguez showed his emotion crossing the line as he raised his arm with Zanini's victory, as did Van Heeswijk. The Mapei team have had a solid Tour in terms of stage wins (4 now), but have suffered as usual in the general classification. Their best riders, Daniele Nardello and Manuel Beltran finished 10th and 11th respectively, prompting Mapei boss Giorgio Squinzi's recent outburst that his riders were beaten by drugs.
The lap of honour

They weren't beaten today though, and at least had the satisfaction of winning the Blue Riband stage. The biggest honour went to Lance Armstrong of course, as he crushed his opposition to win the 2000 Tour. Ever since his stage 10 performance to Hautacam, his strength, determination and the US Postal team commitment has never been in doubt, even if he did falter slightly on the Joux-Plane. His second Tour win certainly doesn't seem like his last, as he is still two months shy of his 29th birthday. An exciting time trial rematch looms with his rival Jan Ullrich in Sydney, but in the meantime he has said he will back off and then rebuild his form.

The other competitions require a little summing up as well. Firstly, Erik Zabel of Telekom managed a record fifth successive green jersey in the Tour. It's the sign of the most consistent sprinter, and Zabel is always good in this competition because he can climb as well as sprint. This year, he added a stage win to his palmares, and is the most successful rider of 2000 in terms of wins.

The climbers' Maillot Pois (Polka Dot jersey) was taken out by the winner of the longest mountain stage, Colombian Santiago Botero of Kelme. He broke Richard Virenque's monopoly on that prize with some fine attacking riding through the mountains. His Kelme team were awarded with the team prize as a result, beating Festina by 13.42, and they well deserved it after forcing the pace so often when the others were afraid.

Although Botero almost took out the most combative rider classification , that honour went to Erik 'triple' Dekker (Rabobank), winner of three stages this year, and present in countless attacks. His rivals, Jens Voigt, Christophe Agnolutto and Jacky Durand all tried their hardest, but Dekker just stuck to the 'Go Hard, Early and Often' rule, and it paid off.

Finally, the best young rider was Banesto's Francesco Mancebo, 9th overall and one of only 10 riders eligible for the prize. All of the riders in this classification, including David Millar, Magnus Backstedt, David Moncoutie and Salvatore Commesso will be ones to keep an eye on in future.
