Here he is leading out on his final assault in this last stage:

Here is what Mark said in an interview after his win:

“I’ve always said that I wanted to win on the Champs-Elysées. Every sprinter dreams of putting their hands up in the air as they cross that line, seeing the Arc de Triomphe in the foreground and it’s an amazing feeling to do so. It didn’t disappoint at all.”

Of course, the winner of the Tour itself was Alberto Contador and Lance Armstrong ended up in third place overall with Andy Schleck in second.
