REVIEW: French put two on the podium in Paris

CYCLING – Jean-Christophe Péraud and Thibaut Pinot will come second and third respectively in the 2014 Tour de France. It is the first time in 17 years that any local favourite reaches the top 3. In 1997, Richard Virenque finished second behind Tour winner Jan Ullrich. The last time two Frenchmen reached the Champs Élysées podium was 30 years ago. In 1984, Laurent Fignon won the Tour de France and Bernard Hinault finished runner-up.
