When Chris Froome rolled over the line on the Champs Elysees in Paris Sunday to win his fourth Tour de France he took another step closer to greatness.Not once during this Tour did any of Froome's performances come into question.Most notably, in the Pyrenees, on the brutally steep Peyragudes finish to stage 12, six rivals from the top 10 left Froome in their wake.This year, more than ever, Froome won the Tour in the time-trials, having actually given up time to both Romain Bardet and Rigoberto Uran outside of the races against the clock.But while several rivals can at least match Froome on the climbs, none can crush him and the Briton remains the best time-trialist among the climbers.His winning margin may have been his smallest yet at just 54 seconds from Uran – and the race was thrilling and unpredictable throughout – but Froome remains the best and his team is far stronger than any of the rest.
