Chris' Profile

About Chris

Chris Froome joined the British Cycling Olympic Podium Programme in 2011, signing with Team Sky in the same year after a promising stint with Team Barloworld.

The Kenyan-born Brit went on to finish second overall in the 2011 Vuelta a Espana, before playing an integral role in delivering Mark Cavendish to the UCI Road World Championships title in Copenhagen as part of a nine-man Great Britain squad.  

2012 saw Froome finish fourth in the Criterium du Dauphine before finishing second behind Sir Bradley Wiggins in the Tour de France.

Froome went on to win bronze in the time-trial at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

2013 saw Froome take overall victories at the Tour of Oman, Criterium International, Tour de Romandie and Criterium du Dauphine before taking victory in the Tour de France, a second successive win for a British rider.

Froome won the 2014 Tour of Oman and Tour de Romandie and began the Tour de France on British roads as one of the favourites. But a crash on stage four from Le Touquet to Lille caused a wrist injury which forced the rider to withdraw from the race on stage five from Ypres to Arenberg.

But Froome bounced back in 2015, taking overall victories in the Vuelta a Andalucia and the Criterium du Dauphine before securing his second Tour de France win, a first for a British rider.
