The Tour de France is over for another year with the 2016 edition of the race providing plenty of memorable moments and images from the Mont Sant-Michael Grand Depart to the arrival on the Champs-Élysées 22 days later. Chris Froome might not have been challenged by his rivals as many suspected he would have pre-race, it wasn't straightforward for the now three-time winner with his run up Mont Ventoux sure to stick in the mind for decades to come.
The flamme rouge dropping on Adam Yates' front wheel was another moment of madness in the race and a non-racing incident deciding the outcome of a stage. However, there was plenty of racing action to celebrate from Mark Cavendish's return to form with four stage wins, Peter Sagan doing what he wants and winning three stages and a fifth green jersey for example.
We've put together a selection of the best photos of the Tour de France for you to enjoy now that's it wrapped up. It's 340 days until the Tour kicks off again with the Düsseldorf Grand Depart on July 1, 2017 so before then, click or swipe through the gallery above for a reminder of the great and good from the 103rd La Grand Boucle.
