(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.

10 years from now we'll find out he was doping.

Remember now. Lance said you can't win that thing without doping. ... and you know what that means.
