Behind him, his teammates arrived; Jonas Vingegaard and Primoz Roglic. They, together with the American, made up a historic podium of three riders from the same team. It should be noted that Sepp Kuss is the first North American rider since Chris Horner (2013) to win the last of the Grand Tours.

For his part, the Australian Kaden Groves (Alpecin-Deceuninck) emerged as the winner of this last stage with arrival in Madrid; being his third partial victory of the now recently completed Spanish competition, in what was a valid one that was marked by the escape that occurred in the final circuit.

However, the aforementioned Australian rider won the classification by points (totaling 315 units). While, Remco Evenepoel obtained the titles of Super combative and best in the Mountain.

Likewise, the best youngster was the Spanish Juan Ayuso (UAE Team Emirates) who clocked a time of 76hr51'39”. The best team was of course Jumbo-Visma, all thanks to the relentless displays given by Kuss, Vingegaard and Roglic, who go down in history as the champions of the three Grand Tours of 2023.
