`British` Froome registers historic second Tour de France win

Johannesburg, July 27 (ANI): Chris Froome on Sunday became the first Briton to win the Tour de France for the second time after safely reaching the finish line at the end of the three-week race in Paris.

The 30-year-old Briton crossed the line alongside his Sky team-mates to clinch a second Grand Boucle crown following his 2013 success, Sport24 reported.

In a competition that has seen him being accused of cheating, spat upon and doused with urine, Froome said he felt ‘incredible’ after the win.

The Nairobi born cyclist beat Colombia’s Nairo Quintana to the yellow jersey by 72 seconds with Spain’s Alejandro Valverde coming in third.

Mark Cavendish finished sixth after the 109.5km race from Sevres at the Champs-Elysees.

By winning this title, Froome and his Team Sky, have now bagged three of the last four of cycling’s showpiece races. (ANI)
