The comment of Christian Prudhomme

After the high-speed train transfer from Bordeaux, the closing stage of the race will also be the shortest: 105 kilometres from Longjumeau, a new stage town, in Essonne, to Paris, entered from the west. Sprinters will be hoping for a glorious dash to victory on the final home stretch on the Champs-Élysées, and the 2010 Tour de France will crown its champion.
