The 26-year-old Russian finished the 17th stage of the tournament, which finishes on Sunday, July 24, in Paris, in the first place leaving behind the rest of 180 riders. He finished the 184.5 km (114.6 miles) distance in Switzerland, from Berne to Finhaut-Emosson, in 4 hours 36.33 minutes.
"I did my best today," Zakarin was quoted by the tournament’s official website as saying after the race. "I'm really happy now."
"Thank you to my team-mates, they've been super," he said. "This result is not a surprise for me. In the first week, I also tried to go for it."
