Cycling: Froome close to third Tour as Izaguirre wins 20th stage

MORZINE, France, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 23th july, 2016) - Chris Froome all but wrapped up the 2016 Tour de France title as Spaniard Ion Izaguirre won the 20th and penultimate stage on Saturday. With Sunday's 21st and final stage little more than a procession into Paris, only a disaster can deny Froome a third Tour title now.

Despite crashing on Friday, Froome comfortably held onto his lead of more than four minutes over Frenchman Romain Bardet on the rainy 146.5km stage from Megeve to Morzine in the Alps.
