Chris Froome: I can try to go for a stage win at the Tour


Chris Froome’s results this season are nothing they used to be. However, the 38-year-old is confident that he can play a leading role in the upcoming Tour de France.

“The Tour is always the ultimate goal,” he told DirectVélo.

117th at the Tour Down Under, 94th at the Tour de Romandie, 55th at the CIC-Mont Ventoux and 40th at Route d’Occitanie. Chris Froome is certainly not having the best season of his career. In recent years, the four-time Tour winner is a shadow of the rider he once was, but the Brit is still motivated.

“I’ve been improving little by little,” he said. “The last six-seven weeks have been going well in training, I’ve worked well and without any problems. Things seem to be going in the right direction.”

“The Tour remains the ultimate goal,” Froome continued. “It’s the race in which I’ve had my nicest feelings, where all the best riders in the world compete in their best form.

“Obviously I’m not going to go to the Tour to fight for the overall, but if I can try to go for a stage win, that would be great.”
