PARIS (AP) - Chris Froome is riding to victory in the 100th Tour de France.

Froome has dominated rivals over three weeks on the road and coolly adroitly dealt with doping suspicions off it.

In two years, Britain will have had two different winners: Bradley Wiggins in 2012 and now Froome, a calmer more understated but no less determined character than his Sky teammate with famous sideburns.

Froome rode into Paris in style - in the canary yellow race leader's jersey he took on Stage 8 and never relinquished, vigorously staving off rivals whose concerted attacks turned this Tour into a thriller.
