Israel Start-Up Nation is proud to announce that four-time Tour de France winner, Chris Froome, will line up for this year’s Tour in the blue and white colors of ISN.
“Chris will be our road captain in this year’s Tour de France. As a four-time winner of the Tour, the value of his experience cannot be underestimated. It will be extremely useful for the team during the race”, said sports manager Rik Verbrugghe.
“On a performance level, I believe that we will see another improvement from the Dauphiné to the Tour after our recent training camp in the Alps. We hope to see Chris progress stage by stage throughout the race.”
With seven Grand Tour victories and 14 Grand Tour stage wins to his name, Froome is one of the most acclaimed GC riders of his generation. This year’s edition of the Tour marks his return to the race after a career-threatening accident two years ago.
“After two years away from the Tour de France I can’t wait to get back. It has been an arduous journey since my crash at the Critérium du Dauphiné in 2019, but this has been one of my biggest motivations”, Froome explains.
“I’ve been working tirelessly to get to where I am, and although my ambitions this year won’t be as leader, I hope to add my experience and support to the team as best I can as road captain. We have a strong contender in Michael Woods, and I look forward to giving my all for him and the team in the battle to Paris.”
And here it is!
