Froome's going for the double http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/chris-froome-confirms-giro-ditalia-participation/
Chris Froome to race the Giro d'Italia in 2018
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's his chance,I might be wrong but is there not a extra weeks rest till the tour.Due to some footy matches being on ?
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.
Really great to see Froome having a go.
Tour starting late or Giro early?
Tour late by a week i think to accomodate footy.
That's probably better for him than the other way round.
