A second victory of Chris Froome in 3 years - Tour de France
Chris Froome (Sky) scored again his name in the history of cycling of the Tour de France by winning the 102nd edition. Already winner of the 2013, the British emerged Sunday before the two riders of the Movistar team, the Colombian Nairo Quintana and the Spaniard Alejandro Valverde after the final stage on the Champs-Elysées. The favorite of sports betting takes his title from the Italian Vincenzo Nibali (Astana), while Quintana fails for the second time in second place in this competition. Froome remains the bane of the Colombian! After 2013, he found himself again in the second step of the podium behind the British. The defending champion Vincenzo Nibali finished the Tour in fourth place and the Spaniard Alberto Contador (Saxo-Tinkoff) ranks fifth.
Paradoxically, Chris Froome has a little less than an hour to complete the turn over in 2013, 84h46'14 against '' 83h56'40. Nairo Quintana improved his time to charge only 1'12 '' behind his opponent against 4'20 '' in 2013. Moreover, the Colombian won for the second time the white jersey of best young rider. The demonstration of Froome in this round suggested mechanical doping suspicion that made him angry especially since the rumor about this form of doping is already recurring for several years in cycling. But without a real technical control by the International Cycling Union, the existence of mechanical doping remains a rumor.
