Froome eyes double
Chris Froome has set his sights on an historic double as the Tour de France champion confirmed he will race in the ‘‘vicious’’ Vuelta a Espana.
Froome claimed his fourth yellow jersey in Paris on Sunday and now he hopes to become the first rider in 22 years to win both the Tour and the Vuelta in the same year. The 32-year-old has finished second three times in the Vuelta and believes he can go one better this time despite the formidable test provided by the Spanish race. – AFP
