Biography

Chris Froome was born in Kenya but in 2008 he chose to ride under a British licence.

In 2010 Froome joined Team Sky and his best career performance came at the 2011 Vuelta a Espana where he came second – levelling the best Grand Tour finish by a Brit after Robert Millar’s second place in 1987.

He was part of the GB team that led Mark Cavendish to world road race victory in 2011.

At the 2012 Olympics in London, Froome won bronze in the men's Individual Time Trial.
