Great Britain’s Geraint Thomas wins Tour de France


PARIS – Geraint Thomas has won his first Tour de France title. The Associated Press reported Sunday that the Welsh rider with Team Sky successfully defended his lead over second-place finisher Tom Dumoulin.

Thomas finished well back in the pack in Sunday’s mostly ceremonial final stage around the Champs-Elysees. Thomas rode a yellow bicycle to match his yellow jersey and shared glasses of champagne during the casual ride into Paris.

Four-time champion Chris Froome, who is also Thomas’s teammate, finished third.
