Wout van Aert admitted that it is "not normal" to win three diverse stages at the Tour de France for the second year in a row.

In 2021, the Jumbo-Visma rider won on the Mont Ventoux stage, the penultimate day time trial, and in the bunch sprint on the Champs-Élysées. This time around, Van Aert won solo into Calais, won an uphill sprint in Lausanne, and then won the penultimate day time trial once again. There is still the Champs-Élysées to come.
