Four-time overall winner Chris Froome is on the starting line of the Tour de France, which starts on July 1. Britain was included in the eight-man squad of the Israel-Premiertec Racing Team.
There was a huge question mark behind the 37-year-old’s cycling star’s involvement after Dauphin was pulled out of the Tour. This is his tenth Tour participation for Froome.
Froome has won the Tour in 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017. However, he has never recovered to his former level since his terrible collapse just before the 2019 tour, when he suffered multiple broken bones.
The captain of the Israel team should be Dan Jacob Fuglsang, who was in good form at the Tour de Suisse. Cologne’s Rick Jabel could not make it to the eight-man squad.
