Chris Froome crossed the line arm-in-arm with his Team Sky teammates as he joined the elite club of three-time Tour de France winners, while Andre Greipel won the final stage in Paris on Sunday. Fernando Valenzuela Jersey .Froome, already Britains only multiple-Tour winner, is now one of just eight men -- not counting the disgraced Lance Armstrong -- to have won three or more Tours, and will have his sights set on record five-time winners Jacques Anquetil, Miguel Indurain, Bernard Hinault and Eddy Merckx.Froome, who had been able to enjoy a glass of champagne and a sip of beer on the 113km stage from Chantilly, met his wife Michelle and baby boy Kellan just after the finish line as the celebrations began in earnest.In his podium speech, Froome thanked his team and family before paying tribute to the victims of the terrorist attack in Nice on Bastille Day, midway through the Tour.This tour has obviously taken place against the backdrop of terrible events in Nice and we pay our respects, once again, to those who lost their lives in this terrible event, he said.Of course these kind of events put sport into perspective but they also show why the values of sport are so important to free society.We all love the Tour de France because it is unpredictable but we love the Tour more for what stays the same -- the passion of the fans from every nation along the roadside, the beauty of the French countryside and the bonds of friendship created through sport.These things will never change. Vive le Tour et Vive la France.The 31-year-old had effectively sealed victory by staying upright on Saturdays stage 20 to Morzine ahead of Sundays largely processional stage.With a four-minute advantage in his pocket he was able to sit up and enjoy the moment with his team-mates as others finished ahead, although the final general classification retained the time gaps from Saturday night.That meant Froome won the Tour by four minutes and five seconds from Frenchman Romain Bardet.German Greipel, also the winner in Paris 12 months ago, pipped the late-charging world champion Peter Sagan to the line in the traditional sprint on the Champs-Elysees after racing clear of Norways Alexander Kristoff on the run-in.French hope Bryan Coquard was denied the chance to go for victory as he was held up by a late mechanical, while Marcel Kittel was also hit by a mechanical in the closing stages and was unable to contest the sprint.Kristoff attacked first but Greipel, with his Lotto-Soudal lead-out train doing its job on the final approach, burst clear to make sure he did not leave this Tour empty-handed.I cant describe it, said Greipel. Im just super proud of what weve achieved today. Ive raced for three weeks for that. The team kept believing in me.Weve tried many times and we walk away from the Tour with two stage wins, with Thomas De Gendt and myself. This morning, we had a good plan. There was a head wind at the end. I just tried to stay calm.Once we hit the finale, we were one guy too short so I chose to follow Alexander Kristoff who was the strongest. But this is another stage win at the Tour de France. Its wonderful.While Froome was confirmed as the overall winner, Tinkoffs Sagan wrapped up his fifth straight victory in the points classification.The 23-year-old Briton Adam Yates of Orica-BikeExchange took the white jersey as the best young rider in the race -- the first Briton to win the category -- while Sagans team-mate Rafal Majka was confirmed in the king of the mountains polka-dot jersey.Nairo Quintana was third overall, four minutes and 21 seconds behind Froome, while Yates was fourth, a further 21 seconds back. Joc Pederson Jersey . The All-Pro lineman got the leg bent under him while trying to make a tackle during the first half of a 22-20 overtime loss at Miami on Thursday night. The medical staff initially thought hed torn the ligament, and the test a day later in Cincinnati confirmed it. Logan Forsythe Jersey . The CFLs leading rusher kept adding to his gaudy numbers this season and scored the winning touchdown with just over two minutes to play. The New Westminster, B.C., native plowed three yards into the end zone for the last score of a heated, see-saw battle between the two teams with the best records in the CFL. .C. -- Todd Fiddler scored a hat trick, including the overtime goal, as the Prince George Cougars survived an 8-7 win against the Kamloops Blazers in Western Hockey League play Sunday. Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has accepted a plea deal in connection to his highly publicized traffic stop in March.Jones, 29, appeared in Bernalillo Metropolitan Court on Thursday and pleaded guilty to charges of unlawful exhibition driving and improper display of registration, according to court spokesperson Camille Baca. TMZ first reported the plea agreement.Three additional charges -- unlawful drag racing, unlawful use of modification of exhaust systems and failure to maintain traffic lane -- were dismissed, in accordance with the deal.Jones received a 90-day deferred sentence. The court ordered 60 hours of community service and completion of an aggressive driving class. The judge did note Jones has fulfilled 51 hours of community service for a district court case, which he will be credited for.The charges stemmed from a traffic stop on March 24 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. A pollice body cam showed an agitated Jones arguing with an officer and calling him a f---ing liar. Max Muncy Jersey. Jones later apologized for his behavior toward the officer, but denied drag racing. He said he revved his engine to acknowledge a group of nearby fans.Jones is currently under suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, stemming from a failed drug test on June 16. Jones (22-1) was scheduled to fight Daniel Cormier at UFC 200 on July 9, but was removed from the event days before after the United States Anti-Doping Agency reported he had tested positive for two banned substances, including estrogen blockers.Jones immediately stated he did not know how the substances got in his system. Barring a successful appeal, Jones is facing a potential two-year suspension. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys StoreWholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys From China Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Hoodies Wholesale Authentic Jerseys ' ' '
