WINNER OF THE 108TH
TOUR DE FRANCE PRESENTED WITH
CRYSTAL GLASS TROPHY BY ŠKODA
For his second overall victory in the Tour de France, Tadej Pogačar received the winner’s
trophy, which was designed by ŠKODA AUTO and made of Czech crystal glass,
on Sunday on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. The 22-year-old Slovene outshone the
competition in what is probably the world’s most demanding cycle race, covering
3.414 kilometres. The all-electric ŠKODA ENYAQ iV once again led the peloton as the
command vehicle (‘Red Car’) on the final stage from Chatou to Paris. ŠKODA AUTO has
supported the cycling classic as the event’s main partner since 2004.
