Chris Froome may have dominated the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España, winning the overall on Sunday in Madrid, but top rival Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) says Team Sky's star can be conquered.

Froome led the race from stage three to stage 21, finishing with 2-15 minutes over second place Nibali. Nibali already won the Vuelta in 2010, the Tour de France and his home race, the Giro d'Italia twice.
