Chris Froome is of­fi­cially the best Bri­tish road cy­clist ever. Well, he is if an on­line poll we ran fol­low­ing his his­toric Vuelta a Es­paña win counts as ‘of­fi­cial’. An over­whelm­ing 72 per cent of re­spon­dents voted for Froomey – Mark Cavendish was sec­ond with just seven per cent, with Sir Bradley Wig­gins and Beryl Bur­ton level on five. (If you haven’t voted the poll is here: It’s prob­a­bly fair to say that his quiet de­meanour and - let’s be hon­est - Kenyan roots have made it harder for Froome to gain the af­fec­tion of Bri­tish cy­cling fans. If our poll re­sult is a true re­flec­tion of pub­lic opin­ion, though, then Chris’s in­cred­i­ble 2017 Grand Tour dou­ble, added to his three pre­vi­ous Tour de France wins, means he’s

now get­ting the recog­ni­tion he truly de­serves.
