Biography

During the 2017 season Chris Froome wrote yet more pages in the story of an incredible career, taking a modern day first Tour-Vuelta double.

Froome hit peak form as the Tour de France reached its climax, with the Brit taking a superb fourth victory at the biggest event in cycling. Not content with simply becoming a four-time Tour winner, less than four weeks later Froome lined up at the start of the Vuelta. Leading the Spanish Grand Tour from stage three onwards, and picking up two stage wins along the way, Froome finally clinched victory after so many years of near misses.

For 2018 Froome has set a new and equally ambitious goal, as he takes aim at the Giro d'Italia before going in search of a fifth Tour de France title.
