ANNECY-SEMNOZ---Chris Froome has two hands
firmly on the Tour de France trophy. All that remains
is for the British rider to raise it above his head before
cheering crowds in Paris today.
The Team Sky rider retained his big race lead in
yesterday s penultimate stage to ensure he will become
Britain s second successive champion after Bradley
Only an accident or other freak mishap today s
largely ceremonial final ride to the Champs-Elysees
could stop Froome from winning the 100th Tour.
"It s been an amazing journey for me, the race has
been a fight every single day," Froome said at the win-
ner s news conference which the Tour holds the evening
before the final stage.
"This Tour really has had everything. It really has
been a special edition this year."
Froome, who was clearly superior and never looked
really troubled in the three-week race, finished third
yesterday in a dramatic Stage 20 to the ski station of
Annecy-Semnoz in the Alps that decided the other
Nairo Quintana from Colombia won the stage and
moved up to second overall.
Joaquim Rodriguez from Spain rode in 18 seconds
behind Quintana. He moved up to third overall.
Froome s lead is more than five minutes over both
Froome said only when he passed the sign showing
two kilometers (about one mile) to go on the final
steep uphill did he allow himself to believe he d won
"It actually became quite hard to concentrate," he
said. "A very emotional feeling."
Alberto Contador, who was second overall at the
start of the day, struggled on that climb and dropped
off the podium.
Saturday s 125-kilometre (78-mile) trek was the last
of four successive stages in the Alps and the final sig-
nificant obstacle Froome needed to overcome before
Sunday s usually relaxed ride to the finish in Paris.
That 133-kilometre (82-mile) jaunt starts in Versailles,
at the gates of its palace.
Froome s dominance at this Tour was such that this
victory could very well be the first of several. At 28,
he is entering peak years for a bike racer. He proved
at this Tour that he excels both in climbs and time
trials --- skills essential for those who want to win
cycling s premier race. He also handled with poise
and aplomb questions about doping in cycling and
suspicions about the strength of his own performances.
He insisted he raced clean.
This Tour was the first since Lance Armstrong was
stripped last year of his seven wins for serial doping.
Froome said the scrutiny he faced has "definitely been
a challenge" but was "100 percent understandable."
Whoever won this 100th Tour "was going to come
under the same amount of scrutiny, the same amount
of criticism," he said.
"I m also one of those guys who have been let down
by the sport."
Froome first took the race lead and the yellow jersey
that goes with it on Stage 8, when he won the climb
to the Ax-3 Domaines ski station in the Pyrenees. On
Sunday s Stage 21, he will wear the yellow jersey for
the 13th straight day.
Froome said the low point of his Tour was when
he ran short of energy on the second ascent of L Alpe
d Huez this week.
"A horrible feeling," he said.
The highlight, he said, was when he powered away
from his rivals on Mont Ventoux in Provence and
became the first yellow-jersey wearer to win a stage
on that mammoth climb since the legendary five-
time Tour winner Eddy Merckx in 1970.
"That was an incredible moment, incredible."
Quintana s win also secured him the spotted jersey
awarded to riders who harvest the most points on
mountain climbs. He also retained the white jersey as
the Tour s best young rider. The 23-year-old wiped
away tears in his stage winner s news conference.
Of the 198 riders who started on the French island
of Corsica on June 29, 170 have survived this far---
meaning they could equal the Tour s record for finishers,
also 170, achieved in 2010. Uniquely for the 100th
Tour, Stage 21 will set off in the late afternoon, so the
race finishes more or less as the sun is setting behind
the Arc de Triomphe. (AP)
