Chris Froome not relying on time trials for Giro d'Italia title
May 02, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Chris Froome (Team Sky) has begun his final countdown to the Giro dItalia seemingly determined to keep the issues with his salbutamol test at bay and focussed fully on racing. Froome admitted that with Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) as a new rival for the GC battle, he will have to take a different tactic than he has in his four Tour de France victories. "I'm not going to be able to rely on time trialling to win the Giro. The race [route] is extremely well-balanced, there are a lot of time trials, but also mountains. There's not going to be one terrain that wins this Giro, it's going to have to be a different tactic. "It's special for me to come here and target the Giro for the first time," Froome continued. "My career started in Italy, my first few years were living in Italy and it's special to be here. This has never been a big goal of mine 'til now, but from the feeling I had at the Tour of the Alps, I feel I'm ready for this, and I've got a fantastic team to support me. I'm feeling as good as I've ever felt."ADVERTISEMENT The Briton could not avoid repeated questions about his case again at the pre-race press conference, but he gave answers almost identical to those he has provided since the start of the season and his first race of the year at the Ruta del Sol. Flanked by his seven teammates for the Giro, as well as chief sports director for the race, Nicolas Portal, and Team Principal David Brailsford at the end of the line, Froome came out with the same lines as before: I can understand the frustration, nothing says I shouldn't be here racing, this was supposed to be a confidential process. But the first question, asked almost apologetically by an Italian journalist, nonetheless went straight to the heart of an issue that may hang over this Giro d'Italia all the way from Jerusalem to Rome and possibly beyond: How did Froome handle the risk that his Giro d'Italia result could be cancelled, as had happened in the past, with Alberto Contador?

Chris Froome's road to the Giro d'Italia - Video
April 30, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
With less than one week to go before the start of the Giro d'Italia, Team Sky have released a video highlighting the preparations done by ChrisFroome ahead of his historic GrandTour attempt. Froome heads to the small Italian town of Ovaro to preview the MonteZoncolan, finding that the climbs en route to the final climb are also painfully steep. The Briton is heading to Israel this week to start his bid to be one of the three riders in history who have held all three Grand Tour titles simultaneously. Only Bernard Hinault and Eddy Merckx have won all three in a row when the Vuelta aEspaa was in April.ADVERTISEMENT Froome reveals that he had his doubts when the team hatched the plan after he won last year's Tour deFrance and Vuelta a Espaa. "Initially when the team asked me about the Giro, my reaction was no. I really wanted to focus on doing a fifth Tour de France. In my mind, the goal all along was to try and get to that point,"Froome says. "There's an element of risk involved in targeting the Giro-Tour, but I think I'd regret it for the rest of my life if I didn't give it a go. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
