Chris Froome Wins Tour de France
Last year's winner, Vincenzo Nibali, got off to a poor start in the first week of the Tour, but came back strong in the final week, finishing fourth behind Alejandro Valverde. Alberto Contador finished fifth. American Tejay van Garderen was having a great Tour de France, in third place, when he had to abandon the race on Wednesday, the first day in the Alps, due to a respiratory infection.
