2013 Tour de France Finale

2013 Tour de France Podium

The 100th edition of the Tour de France ended today in spectacular form. Chris Froome (Sky) is the champion followed by Nairo Quintana (Movistar) and Joaquin Rodriquez (Katusha). After 21 stages and about 84 hours of bike racing, Froome finished 4:20 ahead of Quintana and 5:04 ahead of Rodriquez. Froome won three stages in this year’s Tour and wore the yellow jersey for two weeks, meaning he has 14 yellow jerseys to take home or give away to friends. Maybe you’ll see one hanging in your bike shop some day, and you’ll remember what it took to get there.
