Team Sky rider Chris Froome has officially won his second Tour de France title, and Britain’s third, following the end of the famed race in Paris on Sunday.
“I was on my absolute limits, I felt like I was dying a thousand deaths on the Alpe,” Froome told local reporters.
Nairo Quintana of Colombia finished second after proving himself as a fierce challenger in the 20th stage of the race, cutting nearly a minute and a half off Froome’s lead at Alpe d’Huez.
“This is 100 percent a British victory,” Froome said after his win.
Froome has contributed two titles to Britain’s three Tour de France wins. Bradley Wiggins won for Britain in 2012.
