ALPE D'HUEZ, France---Feeling like
he was "dying a thousand deaths,"
Chris Froome started to think that a
second Tour de France victory might
be melting away like the patches of
snow on surrounding Alpine peaks.
Up ahead, already out of sight on
the 21 hairpin bends lined by frenzied
spectators, Froome s biggest rival at
this Tour and those to come, Nairo
Quintana, was flying, out of his saddle,
Grimly, Froome clung on. Following
the wheels of two teammates who led
him up cycling s most iconic climb to
the Alpe d Huez ski station, he passed---
barely---the last big test before the
three-week race rolls to its finish in
This wasn t the dominant Froome
whose powerful performances in the
Pyrenees seemed, to some skeptics,
reminiscent of dope cheats who did so
much damage to the Tour. This was
just a man, fighting pain, fighting the
mountain, fighting to survive.
"There was a moment where I felt
this could go either way," the British
"I was on my absolute limits. I was
dying a thousand deaths."
Quintana was outstanding on the
storied ascent, piling on speed in his
last real opportunity to unseat the race
leader. Over his radio, Froome s Team
Sky updated him on the Colombian s
progress as he scythed through fans
waving flares and smoke bombs.
"We were getting time checks every
few minutes," Froome said. "It was
comforting to see it wasn t suddenly
jumping by 30 seconds each time. It
was slowly moving up 5-10 seconds at
Thibaut Pinot won yesterday s Stage
20, the third French victory of this Tour.
But it was Quintana s bold last assault
and Froome s tenacious defense that
provided the thrilling finale to a spec-
The one minute, 12 seconds Froome
preserved over Quintana will see him
crowned the winner on the Champs-
"An amazing, amazing feeling," he
Froome essentially won this Tour on
the first big climbs in the Pyrenees in
week two when, closely followed by
teammate Richie Porte, he triumphed
at the La Pierre-Saint-Martin ski station
to give him a big time cushion. He
picked that climb weeks earlier in train-
ing as the place to make his move.
That decisive blow carried Froome
through those mountains and the hilly
Massif Central region on the way to
the Alps, and---with the exception of
Quintana---resigned other contenders
to fight for second and third.
Ultimately, Quintana left himself too
much to do on the last of four days in
the Alps. Just as in 2013, he ll finish
runner-up again to Froome.
Quintana said time lost in the first
week cost him dearly.
Still, he said: "Second at the Tour
de France isn t half-bad."
Their engrossing, developing rivalry
is box office for the sport after the rav-
ages wrought by Lance Armstrong s
era of systematic doping and lying.
At age 25, Quintana s future is ahead.
He again will win the white jersey as
the Tour s best young rider.
At 30, Froome can still add to his
soon-to-be two Tour wins, and says
he sees himself competing for at least
another six or seven years.
But on this Tour s evidence, Quintana
is getting closer to finding Froome s
breaking point. In 2013, Froome won
with a lead of four minutes, 20 seconds.
This Tour wasn t so comfortable. (AP)
TOUR DE FRANCE
Froome all but locks up title
Thibaut Pinot of France celebrates as he crosses the finish line to win the 20th
stage of the Tour de France cycling race over 110.5 kilometers (68.7 miles) with

AT A GLANCE
ALPE D'HUEZ, France---A
brief look at the 20th stage of
the Tour de France on Saturday:
Stage: The penultimate stage
took the pack along 110.5
kilometers (69 miles), starting in
Modane Valfrejus and over two
of the toughest climbs in pro
cycling: The Croix de Fer pass and
a finish up the fabled Alpe
d'Huez, which was lined with
colorfully and, at times, scantily
Winner: Thibaut Pinot of
France. The third-place finisher at
last year's Tour captured the
stage win with a solo breakaway.
Yellow jersey: Chris Froome.
The Kenya-born Briton saw his
overall advantage dwindle
against his closest rival, Nairo
Quintana, but held on enough to
all but ensure victory in the
three-week race in Paris on
Sunday barring a catastrophe.
How did the "Fab Four"
perform? A day after surging
ahead to trim Froome's lead by
about a half-minute, Colombia's
Quintana picked up where he left
off and cut another 1:36 from his
deficit with a blistering attack on
the Alpe d'Huez. Among the two
other pre-race favorites, two-
time Tour winner Alberto
Contador and defending
champion Vincenzo Nibali
finished nearly 2 minutes after
Froome---but they were already
out of contention for the title.
Quote of the day: "This will be
burned into my memory: A
victory on Alpe d'Huez is the
stuff of dreams"---Pinot.
Stat of the day: 72. The
number of seconds by which
Froome now leads Quintana,
setting up the closest 1-2 Tour
finish since 2008.
Next stage: The last stage
takes riders on a flat 109-
kilometer (68-mile) loop from the
western Paris suburb of Sevres
to the Champs-Elysees. Expect a
leisurely ride for the most part---
until the final sprint approaches---
and the Champagne to flow for
Froome's Sky team.
