From Chris Froome's dramatic run-up Mount Ventoux to Richie Porte's moto crash and all the stunning scenery of the most epic cycling event in the world.

Three -time champion Froome won the 2016 event but not without personal drama along the way. Australia's Richie Porte too came a cropper and Adam Yates was felled by an on course banner.

Mark Cavendish quelled the doubters to win four stages even as his sprint rival Andre Greipel took the marquee finale on the Champs-Élysées.

Just some of the memorable moments of the 2016 Tour de France which started in dramatic fashion at Le Mont-Saint-Michel in Normandy.
