0

Chris Froome won his third Tour de France in Paris on Sunday, becoming Britain's first three-time winner. 

According to CNN, Froome won the race in 2013 and 2015. This year he finished more than two minutes ahead of Romain Bardet, who came in second place. 

"It feels like it's been a roller coaster," Froome told USA Today Saturday. "It's just been an amazing race where I've really taken on the race."


The Tour de France lasts for 23 days and covers more than 2,200 miles. 

Froome finished the grueling race with a cumulative time of 89 hours, six minutes and one second. 

With Froome's win, Team Sky has won four out of the last five Tours, according to CNN.
