Best photos from the 2017 Tour de France - Gallery

For the fourth time in five years, Chris Froome and Team Sky rolled into Paris as the winners of the Tour de France. While the 2017 Tour may lack the defining image of Froome running up Mount Ventoux of last July, there were numerous moments and images that will stick in the mind.

The first German Grand Départ since 1987, saw the crowds pack the Düsseldorf course despite the inclement weather. The German theme continued in the first week with Marcel Kittel claiming the first of his five stages.

In the battle for the yellow jersey, Sky's Geraint Thomas enjoyed his first days as the race leader before Froome took over on stage 5 to resume normal service. The Briton lost his yellow jersey to Fabio Aru after the steep finish at Peryagudes in one of the most scenic finishes of the 2017 Tour. Froome would hold the yellow through to Paris as the race passed through the Pyrenees, across the Massif Central, back to the Alps and then Marseille before the long transfer to Paris.
