Great conclusion to a drama filled Vuelta

Chris Froome…The Tour-Vuelta double pushes him into more elite company. Only Merckx (1970, 72-74), Hinault (1978, 82, 85), Anquetil (1963, 64), Contador (2008), Coppi (1949, 52), Giovanni Battaglin (1981), Stephen Roche (1987), Pantani (1998) and Indurain (1992, 93) have won two grand tours in one season.

Winning four of the past five Tours is impressive by any measure. Froome has emerged as the best Tour rider of his generation, and this Vuelta victory will bolster the argument that he’s one of the all-time best in history.
