Chris Froome participera au Tour de France 2022 avec Israël-Premier Tech, Jakob Fuglsang désigné leader d’équipe

The quadruple winner of the Tour will be at the start of the Grande Boucle in Copenhagen on July 1. This Wednesday, Chris Froome was retained by the Israel PT team for the 2022 edition. Third in 2018, the Briton has not played at the top of the table since, due to his serious fall in June 2019 and the long recovery necessary.

I’ve worked exceptionally hard this year and I can’t wait to give it my all. We have a great group of runners“, said Froome, quoted by his training, before his tenth participation in the event. The Israeli team will play the experience in the Tour with Jakob Fuglsang (37), third in the recent Tour of Switzerland, and Michael Woods ( 35 years).
