Tour de France: Chris Froome will be good at the start

The verdict is in. He will be there! Despite his retirement in the Dauphiné, and while he has not obtained any significant results since his serious fall in 2019, Christopher Froome will start the Tour de France 2022 on July 1st. The Briton, four-time winner of the event, was selected by his Israel-Premier Tech team.

Froome, 37, won the Tour in 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017. Third in 2018, he did not start again after, due to his serious fall in June 2019 and the long recovery needed. “I’ve worked exceptionally hard this year and I’m looking forward to giving it my all. We have a great group of riders,” said Froome, quoted by his formation, before his tenth participation in the event.

The Israeli team will gain experience in the Tour with Dane Jakob Fuglsang (37), third in the recent Tour of Switzerland, and Canadian Michael Woods (35). “The main priority for us is to win a stage,” said team principal Kjell Carlström. “We also want to keep options open and see what can be possible in terms of fighting for the leader’s jersey like we did last year when Michael Woods fought for the mountain jersey.
