Cadel Evans in Tour de France 2011

The 2016 success was Froome’s third Tour victory after taking home the yellow jersey in 2013 and 2015. The British cyclist finished the Tour in a total time of 89 hours, 4 minutes and 48 seconds, over four minutes ahead of his nearest rival, Romain Bardet.

Peter Sagan was awarded the green jersey after finishing on 470 points as 2016’s best sprinter, well clear of second-placed Marcel Kittel (228 points) and Australia’s third-placed Michael Matthews (199).

Rafal Majka finished with the polka-dot jersey as the best climber of Le Tour. Majka finished on 209 points, a handsome lead over second-placed Thomas de Gendt (130) and third placed Jarlinson Pantano (121). Adam Yates won the white jersey for finishing as the quickest of the young riders.

The 2016 Tour de France included two individual time trials and no team time trial. There were six mountain stages, four of which had summit finishes. The 2016 edition was 158.7 kilometres longer than the 2015 version.
