Alberto Contador earned his second Tour de France victory after seeing out the 21st and final stage, won in stunning style by Manxman Mark Cavendish. Spaniard Contador held off Luxembourg’s Andy Schleck with American Lance Armstrong edging out Bradley Wiggins. Wiggins equalled the best Tour finish by a Briton with his fourth place matching Robert Millar in 1984. Cavendish’s win was his sixth of the 2009 Tour and he became the first Briton to win on the Champs Elysees.

Check out Cavendish’s sprint finish down the Champs Elysees. Impressive.
