Sky's Chris Froome will finish the Tour de France in the yellow jersey in Paris on Sunday, and he plans to keep coming back to repeat his victory instead of branching out to other grand tours.

Froome's rivals were unable to come close to upsetting his ride to a third title over the last three weeks. He concluded the final mountain stage on Saturday in Morzine with a sizable 4-05-minute lead over Frenchman Romain Bardet (Ag2r La Mondiale) in second place.
