After winning the gruelling Stage 15, Tour leader Chris Froome said he couldn't believe that he had managed to reach Mont Ventoux first.
The Yellow Jersey wearer had battled with Movistar rider Nairo Quintana for a number of kilometre before finally breaking away from the Colombian close to the summit.
“I didn’t imagine this, this climb is so historic it means sot much to this race, especially being the 100th edition of the race. I didn’t see myself winning this race today.
“My main aim was to get more of a buffer on the GC. I was expecting to give up the stage to Quintana.”
