PARIS (Reuters) - Tour de France champion Chris Froome has won the prestigious Velo d'Or award as the best rider of 2013, the Briton's Team Sky said on Wednesday.

Froome prevailed in a poll of cycling journalists set up by French publication Velo Magazine, with Colombia's Nairo Quintana, the Tour runner-up as well as leading climber and best young rider, was voted prospect of the year.

In addition to the Tour de France, Froome also won the Criterium du Dauphine and the Tour de Romandie.
