British cyclist Chris Froome of Team Sky emerged as the overall winner of the 2017 Tour de France, securing his fourth victory in five years.

Frenchman Warren Barguil from Team Sunweb won the polka dot jersey as the King of the Mountains and two mountain stages, showcasing his climbing prowess. Australian rider Michael Matthews, also of Team Sunweb, secured the green jersey for the points classification. British rider Simon Yates won the white jersey for the best young rider.
