How Egan Bernal claimed the Tour de France 2019



Climbing phenomenon Egan Bernal has become the first Colombian to win the Tour de France and the youngest champion in 110 years.

The 22-year-old Team Ineos rider retained the overall leadership after the 20th stage on Saturday, 59km from Albertville.

His teammate and defending champion Geraint Thomas finished second overall ahead of Dutchman Steven Kruijswijk after Frenchman Julian Alaphilippe broke up in the final ascent to the Val Thorens ski resort.

Sunday's final stage from Rambouillet to Paris was largely processional, with only the final sprint contested and thousands of fans on the Champs Elysées to congratulate Bernal on his achievement.
