Le Tour De France 2016: Stage 21

Chantilly / Paris Champs-Élysées 113KM

 From the Château de Chantilly to the Arc de Triomphe, the last act will be quite prestigious!The start of the final stage wasn't given from the north of Paris since 1984. At the time, it was in Pantin. It'll therefore invite the riders to discover new areas of the capital. Will that however trouble the plans of the sprinters on the Champs-Élysées? That remains to be seen.

Chantilly is the center of an urban area that includes the communes of Avilly-Saint-Léonard, Boran-sur-Oise, Coye-la-Forêt, Gouvieux, Lamorlaye, and Vineuil-Saint-Firmin. It's the third-largest urban area in the Oise and the seventh largest in Picardy. It has no large businesses or heavy industry and 40% of the population works in Ile-de-France, in other words Paris or its closer suburbs, which are less than an hour away by train.
