And just like that, it's over. The Tour de France that wasn't actually going to start, has just wrapped up in the most dramatic fashion. As predicted, the final week of Le Tour - including that time trial - was about as exciting as it gets in bike racing. With everyone and their mum hailing this the best TdF in history, it's certainly one that will be spoken about in the same hushed tones as 1989 for years to come.
Maybe it's just 2020, but the crash-fest in Nice that kicked us off at the end of August really does feel like years ago. In a funny way it's been quite nice focusing solely on a bike race and blocking out the real world for three weeks. A welcome respite from the daily face punch that is the news. With bikes.
If you missed our round up of the first two week's of Le Tour, then you can catch up here. I'll touch on some of that same stuff in the blog too, but this is more of a focus on week three and the race as a whole.
