Bernal becomes youngest Tour de France winner in 110 years

Climbing phenomenon Egan Bernal has become the first Colombian to win the Tour de France and the youngest -22years- race champion in 110 years. The Team Ineos rider retained the overall lead after Saturday's 20th stage, a 59-km ride from Albertville to Paris.

On the Champs-Elysees -fittingly bathed in the yellow of a golden dusk- Bernal can't understand what's happening to him. “I cannot believe it. It’s just incredible. I am sorry. I have no words,” The slightly built Colombian with a killer instinct on the road, proved to be the strongest of the 176 strong men who roared off from the start in Brussels, Belgium, on July 6 on their 3,366-kilometer odyssey that delivered the most absorbing, drama-packed Tour in decades and a new cycling superstar in the making: Bernal.
