Froome leading the way for Team Sky
TEAM SKY has selected its squad for the 102nd edition of the Tour de France, which starts in Utrecht this Saturday and concludes on July 26 in Paris.
Leader Chris Froome is one of five British riders in the nine-man team, which also includes: Richie Porte, Geraint Thomas, Peter Kennaugh, Ian Stannard, Luke Rowe, Nicolas Roche, Leopold Koenig and Wout Poels.
He said: “Last year’s disappointment is this year’s motivation for Team Sky. From the moment I crashed out in 2014 I’ve had the desire to get back to this year’s Tour in the best possible shape. I’m ready and fortunate to have a strong team around me to meet the many different challenges of this year’s race – from the cobbles to the climbs.
“We’re ready to give our best for every kilometre of every day over the three weeks of the Tour.”
