Tour de France 2011 Stage 21 Route Profile Reuters

Cadel Evans will be riding into Paris on the Champs-Elysees in Stage 21 as the winner of the Tour de France after grabbing hold of the yellow jersey yesterday in the individual time trial.

Evans' superb time trial was more than enough to overcome Andy Schleck's 57 second lead, as Evans now has a comfortable 1:34 edge over Schleck in the general classification.

Stage 21, the final stage of the Tour de France is traditionally a victory lap for the yellow jersey holder and Evans won't be attacked on this stage.

Instead, the major battle will be for the sprint victory into Paris on this flat 95 km stage.

Green jersey holder Mark Cavendish will be favored to win the stage as usual with his HTC-Highroad lead out train in full force.

In fact, one HTC rider may have an extra bit of energy leading out Cavendish in Tony Martin, after he won the individual time trial by only 7 seconds over second place Evans in that stage.

In addition to the final sprint, there will be an intermediate sprint contested at the 53 km mark of this stage.
