Barring a serious injury during the 14 laps of the Champs Elysee Chris Froome will be crowned winner of the Tour de France today. In yesterday's contre le montre the Sky team leader extended his lead to 54 seconds over French favourite Romain Bardet. Riding around the streets of Marseille the home crowd demonstrated their support of the home rider and booed the British cyclist. But Froome showed his superiority by almost catching Bardet at the line.
This will be Froome's third consecutive Tour victory and his fourth overall.
