Chapeau Christopher: Froome wins Tour du France

Christopher Froome is the winner of the 2015 Tour du France.

He becomes the first British cyclist to win the world’s biggest bike race twice.

He celebrated on the way into Paris with his Sky teammates, the hard work done in the previous three weeks.

Three weeks, not only of intense bike racing, but of endless doping accusations, questions and hostile crowds.

Froome himself has been doused in urine and spat at, still he kept his eyes on the prize.

As the peloton hit Paris the sprinters and their teams got to work in an attempt to win the prestigious final stage in the French capital.

The German speed machine Andre Greipel proved that he is the fastest man in the peloton by winning his fourth stage.
