Tee inspired by the final stage of each years' Tour De France, étape 21. The Tour has since 1975 concluded on the Champs-Élysées, the most emblematic street of the city of Paris. The riders clip into their pedals near Paris La Défense Arena in Nanterre, a western suburb of Paris. The riders approach the French capital as if pedalling to the beach. A glass of champagne, a photo shoot, a very slow pace – those are the ingredients of the parade stage on the final day of action. But once the riders hit the cobbles on the Champs-Élysées the bunch accelerates. The stage ends with eight fast laps of almost 7 kilometres, circling the famous Arc de Triomphe and heading down the wide partly cobbled boulevard of the Champs-Élysées at breakneck speed for a sprint finish. The stage is often referred to as the unofficial sprinter's World Championships - a win on the Champs-Élysées every bit as prestigious as the famous rainbow bands.
