Tour de France 2013 final standings: Chris Froome wins, Nairo Quintana captures runner-up

Froome becomes the second British rider in a row to win cycling's grand prize, while rookie rider Quintana finishes second in his debut Tour.

After three grueling weeks and over two thousand miles winding through scenic countrysides and steep mountains, the 2013 Tour de France came to a close on Sunday as Britain's Chris Froome won the 100th running of the historic race.

Though Froome's victory was a foregone conclusion for most of the past week, he made it official on Sunday, cruising into Paris to finish just over four minutes in front of his nearest challenger, Nairo Quintana. With the win, Froome becomes just the second Briton to capture cycling's highest prize after countryman Bradley Wiggins became the first in 2012. Froome's title caps a dominant Tour in which he won three stages and maintained the yellow jersey from Stage 8 onward.

It was a stunning performance by Quintana, who finishes his first-ever Tour de France with a second-place finish. The 23-year-old Colombian grabbed a stage win on Saturday to help vault him into second, capping a stellar debut race. In addition to finishing runner-up, he secured the polka dot jersey, given to the best mountain racer, as well as the white jersey, awarded to the top young rider.

Spaniards Joaquim Rodriguez and Alberto Contador and Roman Kreuziger of the Czech Republic round out the top five. Rodriguez finished roughly five minutes behind Froome, while Contador finished six-and-a-half off the lead. Contador is a two-time winner of the Tour, having captured overall victories in 2007 and '09.

Below are the final top 10 standings. Complete standings can be found at the Tour's official website.
