Chris Froome wins fifth Grand Tour title



Chris Froome has won La Vuelta a Espana, becoming the first British cyclist in history to do so and near a status as an all-time great.


The four-time Tour de France champion comfortably finished Sunday's final stage to Madrid in 11th place, to clinch victory in the three-week long race's general classification.
 
 
Froome's victory means he has become only the third man in history to complete the double of winning Le Tour and La Vuelta in the same season.


He is also the first cyclist to do the Tour-Vuelta double since La Vuelta was moved after Le Tour in the cycling calendar.
