Chris Froome (Israel-Premier Tech) made his Tour debut after his heavy fall at Dauphiné 2019. He was third on the stage for Alpes de Huys and made a very positive impression. Sammy Neirinck visited the polite Froome ever for Vive le Vélo.
“Let’s see what the future holds.”
Chris Froome (Israel-Premier Tech) swam in deep water after his terrible fall exploring the time trial at Dauphiné three years ago. He tells himself whether the four-time Tour winner still has ambitions for the Tour.
“The big goal is to get back to the level where I had to stop after my big crash,” the 37-year-old said. “That certainly won’t be this year, maybe that will be possible in the upcoming editions of the tour.”
Froome concludes, “Let’s see what the future holds and how the next seasons play out. I don’t feel like I’m finished yet and have more to offer.”
