Contador wins Tour de France 2009, Cavendish wins Paris stage

Quite a dramatic finish today in Paris for the Tour de France 2009! Cavendish won the final stage in Paris, as his team, Columbia, outwitted Garmin once again. Cavendish should have won the green jersey but he was penalized a few stages ago, thereby giving Thor Hushovd the lead. Still, Cavendish won six stages which is more than any other British rider.

Final standings:

1st – Contador; 2nd – Andy Schleck; 3rd – Lance Armstrong

King of the Mountains (red peas jersey): Franco Pellizotti

Best young rider (white jersey): Andy Schleck

Best sprinter (green jersey): Thor Hushovd

Best team: Astana
