Tour de France
Stage 21: Sevres - Grand Paris Seine Ouest to Paris Champs-Elysees - Stage Details

Paris-Nice sprint classification winner Michael Matthews has sprinted to ninth place on the Champs Elysees for the final stage of the 2015 Tour de France.

The performance – ORICA-GreenEDGE’s seventh top-ten – wrapped up a tough Grand Tour for the team who suffered significant injuries in the first week.

Vowing to fight on the Australian outfit wanted to go out with a bang, trying to force the final stage break and then setting up Matthews for the final sprint.

“The guys tried to get in the breakaway,” sport director Matt White said. “That didn’t work so we put everything in for Michael.”
