Kittel: Winning 40th Champs-Élysées a huge motivation

Giant-Shimano sprinter Marcel Kittel tells Ned Boulting that winning the final stage of next year's Tour de France, in the 40th year that it finishes on Champs-Élysées, is a huge motivation.

The Tour de France has finished on the Champs-Élysées every year since 1975, and Kittel could make it a hat-trick of victories there in 2015.
