Chris Froome increased his overall lead with a dominating performance in the final stretch of the 15th stage in the 2013 Tour de France.

With just over four miles left in longest race of the Tour, Froome pulled away from his team and sprinted up to the peak of Mont Ventoux. The only man riding in Froome’s way was Nairo Quintana, but Froome easily blew by Quintana to claim his second stage win of the year.

Froome’s impressive performance also gave him the lead in the King of the Mountain standings.

Bauke Mollema remains in second place in the overall standings, but he is now over four minutes behind Froome.
