Tour de France 2011 Live, Stage 21 Results: Mark Cavendish Wins On Champs-Élysées, Cadel Evans Wins Tour

A number of breakaways tried to steal the show in the final day of the 2011 Tour de France on the Champs-Élysées, but all were unsuccessful. Once the peloton reeled in all of the attackers and HTC-Highroad got all of their riders to the front of the pack, there was only one likely result. Unsurprisingly, Mark Cavendish has won yet again in Paris, notching his fifth win of the 2011 Tour and his third straight win in Paris. With his win, Cavendish took home the Green Jersey. He's the first rider from the United Kingdom to win green in the Tour de France, and this green jersey is his second in a grand tour.

Cadel Evans did the traditional winner's ride on the final stage, sipping champagne as the stage started, then riding with his team BMC Racing as they led the rest of the pack onto the Champs-Élysées as the peloton entered Paris from the east. From that point, he just had to stick with the peloton and finish the race, which he did easily.

The other three competitions in the tour were won by Pierre Rolland, who won the White Jersey competition for the best young rider, Samuel Sanchez, who won the Polka Dot Jersey for the king of the mountains, and Garmin-Cervelo, who won the team competition.
