Chris Froome

Since his first Tour de France win in 2013, Chris Froome has been the GC rider of reference in the Tour. Through 2017, the Brit won four yellow jerseys (2013, 2015, 2016, 2017), a polka-dot jersey (2015), and six stages along the way, plus he won a stage in the 2012 Tour. He also won the 2017 Vuelta and the 2018 Giro d’Italia.
