De Gendt’s Tour de France is complete after the 18th stage – .


One of Thomas De Gendt’s first big mountain stages on the Tour de France, in 2011, tackled the double climbs of Col du Tourmalet and Luz Ardiden. Stage 18 has therefore come full circle as the Lotto Soudal rider wondered if this year’s French Grand Tour could be his last.

The 34-year-old is riding his ninth Tour de France, with the breakaway specialist having won a stage in 2019 and 2016, but he said this year was a different experience with his best efforts bringing meager rewards after a quick change in the general level.
