Stage 20: the last lap
Thomas Voeckler led the pack across the line to start the last lap of the Champs-Elysees, and now Juan Antonio Flecha is going for the win on a solo break. He's got about 3 seconds on the pack.
Flecha is caught by the Quick Step team, trying to set up Tom Boonen. Could all the fast chases have taken the snap out of McEwen and Hushovd?
We're in the last kilometer of the 2004 Tour de France!
Fassa Bortolo has taken the lead, now fdjeux is bringing Baden Cooke forward.
Slicing and dicing to the line, Danilo Hondo, Erik Zabel, Robbie McEwen are all there, but in the center, Stefano Zanini leads out Tom Boonen, who takes the stage win ahead of Jean-Patrick Nazon, who took last year's final stage.
McEwen is in the top 10, and will take the final green jersey.
