The 2017 edition of the Tour de France is over, the results in the record books, the legends made now ready to be passed on and down to the next group of riders who attempt the most grueling bicycle race in the world.
When the final stage (Stage 21) was complete, England’s Christopher Froome was the overall winner, winning his fourth Tour de France, and, if you been following our coverage, leading for most of the way. Froome was followed by Rigoberto Uran and Romain Bardet in second and third positions. It is appropriate to think of them as future contenders for a Tour win–they rode well and finished strong.
The final stage of the race, Stage 21, was won by Dylan Groenewegen, who lead the riders into the classic final ride down the Champs Elysees.

There were six jerseys awarded at the close of the tour, and each winner represents a supreme accomplishment delivered over the entire length of the race. Media and social media coverage of the Tour this year was great and you can expect it to be even better next year. Hope that you enjoyed one of the great classic sporting events in the world. Nightshift Sports and the Media Bunker enjoyed the chance to relay–efficiently and effectively–each day’s results. See you next year, where we’ll cover the race from France.
