(Newser) – British cyclist Chris Froome has won the 100th Tour de France, the second consecutive title for a Briton, with Bradley Wiggins winning in 2012. Froome rode into Paris in style—in the yellow race leader's jersey he took on Stage 8 and never relinquished. In its final stage, riders raced on the Champs-Elysees as the sun cast golden hues over the peloton. Marcel Kittel of Germany won the final sprint on the famous avenue, but Froome was the overall race victor.
