Froome focused on more Tour de France glory
LONDON, May 28, 2018 (News Wires) - Chris Froome has turned his attention to claiming a fifth Tour de France title after his history-making success in the Giro d’Italia.
Froome became the first Briton to win the race and also only the third cyclist in history to hold all three Grand Tour titles simultaneously on Sunday.
Despite the ongoing controversy over his adverse analytical finding for Salbutamol at the 2017 Vuelta a Espana, Froome insists he is fully focused on more success.
Froome told the BBC: “I’m going to take two or three days off to relax with my family, but then it’s straight back into training.
“It’s six weeks to the start of the Tour de France, so that’s the big goal now. I want to be in the best shape possible for the start in July.”
A fifth Tour de France victory for Froome would lift him alongside Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault, Jacques Anquetil and Miguel Indurain for the most wins in the event.
