Tour de France 2016: Route and stages

Tour de France 2016
The 2016 Tour de France was won by Chris Froome, while Romain Bardet finished in second and Nairo Quintana in third. Froome laid hands on the yellow jersey in the descent of the Peyresourde in stage 8. Back-up by a strong Sky-squad he cemented his lead in stage 11, 12, 13 to put and end to any doubts by powering to the win in the mountain time trial of stage 18. His performance on Mont Ventoux was striking when he, a Kenya born Briton,  ran up the mountain after a crash.
