The final week of the Tour de France saw Team Sky do a brilliant job of defending yellow with Geraint Thomas able to match all his rivals while Froome secured a sixth career podium finish in Paris. Tom Dumoulin won a time trial but it was not enough to pry back the time he had lost on Thomas. The sprinters contested two stages with Arnaud Demare taking a long sought victory and Alexandre Kristoff taking the prestigious win on the Champs-Élysées. The breakaway had one opportunity to start the week but it was once again Julian Alaphilippe who already had a stage to his name who took the win with the polka jersey on his back.

Following the 21 stages of racing, Team Sky took home the biggest portion of the prize money earning €728,630. Team Sunweb were next at €245,280 with LottoNl-Jumbo putting two riders in the top five and winning three stages taking home €190,980. At the back end of the pack were EF Education First-Drapac who took home only €14,420.
