Froome to compete at road world champs

Froome to compete at road world champs”

Vuelta a Espana champion Chris Froome is set to prioritise winning a record-equalling fifth Tour de France crown next season.

He wore the red jersey for the final 18 stages of the Vuelta having taken over the lead of the race after just the third stage, also finishing in Madrid as the holder of both the green and white jerseys.

Froome has long eyed May's Giro d'Italia from afar but the Tour will likely remain his priority in 2018, when he will aim for a fifth triumph.

Should Froome win the Tour de France for a fifth time in 2018, he would equal the record now held by Eddy Merckx, Jacques Anquetil, Bernard Hinault and Miguel Indurain.

"I'm sure the time will come when I will target the Giro", the Team Sky rider, who has only taken part in the Giro twice, told the BBC.

He said: "I did the Giro before going to the Tour which is, in one sense, a little easier because, especially in today's cycling world, the Vuelta comes the last of the three tours and generally what happens now is everyone prepares 110 per cent for the Tour and they dig really deep to win the Tour de France".

Roche said he thought the Giro and Tour double was easier than adding the Vuelta to a Tour victory in the same year because of the status of the latter.

Asked if it would be possible to win all three Grand Tours in the same year, Froome responded: "I wouldn't say it's impossible, nothing's impossible, but certainly it would take some doing".
