Le Tour de France 2006 (Final Stage)

As expected, Floyd Landis is the winner of this year Le Tour de France. Thor Hushovd has claimed the final stage at Champs-Elysees. This year race is probably the most interesting one since the retirement of Lance Armstrong. 7 riders wore the yellow jersey during the entire race, just one short of equaling the record number of yellow jersey holders. I thought Floyd Landis was going to win this year's tour until the slight setback on Stage 16. He staged a remarkable comeback to win Stage 17 and put himself back into contention for the yellow jersey. He rode a cool and calm race to finish ahead of Oscar Pereiro during Stage 19 time trial. The yellow jersey will remain in the United States for another year.
