Sir Dave Brailsford described Chris Froome’s victory in the 2015 Tour de France as the best of Team Sky’s three triumphs at the race so far.

Froome safely negotiated a weather-affected 21st stage into Paris to seal a 1min 12sec win over runner-up Nairo Quintana on Sunday.

Sir Bradley Wiggins handed Team Sky their first yellow jersey in 2012 and Froome made it two in a row in 2013, but team principal Brailsford was most proud of this year’s performance. (Sky Sports)
