Froome Rides To Victory In 100th Tour De France

Posted: Updated:

PARIS (AP) - Chris Froome won the 100th Tour de France on Sunday, having dominated rivals over three weeks on the road and adroitly dealt with doping suspicions off it.
    
In two years, Britain has had two different winners: Bradley Wiggins in 2012 and now Froome.
    
Froome rode into Paris in style - in the yellow race leader's jersey he took on Stage 8 and never relinquished, vigorously fending off rivals whose concerted challenges turned this Tour into a thriller.
    
Uniquely, the 100th Tour treated itself to a late afternoon start for its final Stage 21. The riders raced on the Champs-Elysees as the sun cast golden hues over the peloton and shadows lengthened over the dense, cheering crowds.
    
Marcel Kittel of Germany won the final sprint on the famous avenue.
