Froome rides on


TOUR de France winner Chris Froome looks set to attempt a second Grand Tour victory in less than two months after deciding to race at the Vuelta a Espana.

“Looking forward to taking on the @lavuelta Tough but always exciting for the viewers #bringiton,” he wrote on his official Twitter account yesterday.

Froome claimed his second Tour de France win last month in a controvers­ial race as the Briton had urine thrown on him and was spat at amid ongoing accusation­s the 30year-old was doping.

Froome has twice finished runner-up in the gruelling three-week tour.
