    He will hold all GT jerseys at the same time if he wins.

    Risky strategy if he wants the 5th TDF

    I am genuinely delighted to see this - Froome, that is. I always thought he'd want to go for it this time, and that the Giro organisers would be desperate to have him, but I always feared the PTB at Sky would dictate otherwise.

    However, there's a lot to happen before we get to the starting line...

    I'm surprised at this, thought TDF would have been his focus

    I think it is excellent news. Something big is now at stake. Sure he might fail but it is great to see a competitor take risks and try to do something special. And I think if anyone could pull it off, it would be Froome. And he'll never have a better opportunity.

    That's probably better for him than the other way round.
