Egan Bernal wrapped up Tour de France victory when he cycled down the Champs-Elysees on Sunday.

Here, PA takes a look at the race in numbers.

2 – days in yellow for Bernal, the fewest of any winner since Cadel Evans took the jersey on the penultimate stage in 2011.

14 – Days in yellow for Julian Alaphilippe, whose remarkable and unexpected run changed the way the Tour was raced.

4 – Different riders to wear yellow in the Tour. Alaphilippe took it off the shoulders of Mike Teunissen on Stage 3 and lent it to Giulio Ciccone for 48 hours after Stage 6, before Bernal took over with two days to go.

0 – No stage winner was declared on the weather-shortened Stage 19 to Tignes, which means that although he is now a Tour winner, Bernal does not yet have a stage victory to his name.

15 – Different winners of the 19 stages in which an individual winner was named. Only Caleb Ewan, with three, and Alaphilippe and Simon Yates with two each claimed multiple wins.

4 – Stage wins for Jumbo-Visma, Lotto-Soudal and Mitchelton-Scott, the most by any of the teams.

40.44 – Bernal’s average speed in kilometres per hour, according to data captured by the tour’s official technology partner NTT.

101.5 – the highest speed recorded by NTT was 101.5kph, by Team Katusha-Alpecin’s Nils Politt during Stage 18.

316 – Peter Sagan’s haul in the points classification, substantially down on last year’s 477 but still comfortable enough, as he won the green jersey for a record seventh time – and seventh out of the last eight.

22 – Bernal is the youngest winner of the Tour in a century, and the third youngest winner in history, at 22 years and 196 days.

3,372 – distance in kilometres raced, with 37km cut from the end of Stage 19 and 71 taken off the start of Stage 20 due to adverse weather and landslides in the Alps.

91 – The gap in seconds between Bernal on the top step and Steven Kruijswijk in third. It is the smallest margin between those on spots the podium in the history of the Tour, beating the 122 seconds between Lucien Aimar and Raymond Poulidor in 1966.

60 – weight in kilograms of Bernal.

155 – riders to reach Paris, out of the 176 to start. Cofidis’ Nicolas Edet was the first to leave the race due to illness on Stage 6. Team Sunweb were the only team to lose more than two riders (Cees Bol, Wilco Kelderman and Soren Kragh Andersen) as the Tour saw the fewest dropouts in its history.

2,770 – metres of altitude at the summit of the Col de l’Iseran, the highest point of the race and one at which Bernal moved into yellow as bad weather forced the shortening of Stage 19.

10.2 – visitors, in millions, to the race centre on the Tour’s official website over the course of the three weeks.
