BIOGRAPHY

Chris Froome is widely considered one of stage racing cycling’s all-time greats.

He took his achievements in cycling to new heights in 2017 after becoming the first rider since 1978 to do the Tour de France and La Vuelta double in the same year.

Froome’s history-making endeavours didn’t stop there as he became the first Briton won complete a Grand Tour hattrick with success at the Giro d’Italia.

His 2017 Le Tour win was also his third in succession and fourth overall, with his first coming in 2013 – the year after helping Sir Bradley Wiggins become the first Briton to take general classification victory.

Froome also racked up Le Tour podium finishes in 2012 and 2018.

He also has two Olympic honours to his name, securing time trial bronze in both the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
