TdF Stage 21: July 23, 2017
Marcel Spanjer of The Netherlands has won the Internet Tour de France Game 2017. In the final stage, the Dutchman finished outside of the top 100 but his advantage built in the earlier stages was enough to claim his first game victory after participating 23(!) times. Mojho Cz (Czech Republic) finished overall second in the game at 8 points while game veteran Cameron Henderson (Australia) claimed third place, just like in 2016. Overall second after yesterday's stage, Frank Koper (The Netherlands), dropped to fourth after today's stage.
The 21st and final stage from Montgeron to Paris (103 km) resulted in the expected sprint finish. With favorite Marcel Kittel out of the race, the sprint was completely open. The stage was won by the young Dylan Groenewegen of The Netherlands. Chris Froome of the United Kingdom took home the yellow jersey. Roberto Uran (Colombia) and Romain Bardet (France) finished overall second and third. Michael Matthews (Australia) won the green jersey for best sprinter, Warren Barguil (France) claimed the polkadot jersey for best climber and the white jersey for best young rider was awarded to Simon Yates (United Kingdom).
In the game, stage 21 was won by Bastin Verweij of The Netherlands. This is his 17th stage win, equalling the all-time game record of Erix Schokker (The Netherlands). Fioara Reidt (The Netherlands) claimed second place while third place was shared by Amy Bruning (UK/Scotland) and Jörgen Jonzon (Sweden). Only one point separated the numbers 1 and 2 and 2 and 3.
With this final Tour stage, the Internet Tour de France Game 2017 has come to an end. Thank you all for participating. See you all in 2018 in the 25th edition of the game!
