Top 10 Moments from the 2013 Tour de France

100th running of the Tour de France

The 100th running of the Tour de France concluded today in the twilight on the Champs-Élysées in Paris.

There were quite a few highlights, many more than 10, none-the-less here are my Top 10 moments from the 2013 Tour de France, in no particular order.
