Chris Froome is nearly 5 minutes out of first place entering the final week of the Italian grand tour.
Since his first Tour de France win in 2013, Chris Froome has been the GC rider of reference in the Tour. Through 2017, the Brit won four yellow jerseys (2013, 2015, 2016, 2017), a polka-dot jersey (2015), and six stages along the way, plus he won a stage in the 2012 Tour. He also won the 2017 Vuelta, but that is now under investigation due to an adverse analytical finding in an anti-doping test after stage 18.
Born in Nairobi, Froome has been a central part of British team Sky since 2010, where he’s also hauled in a number of major wins, including three stages at the Vuelta, three yellow jerseys at Critérium du Dauphiné, and seven other titles at smaller stage races, such as Tour de Romandie and Critérium International. Froome also won silver in both the 2012 and 2016 Olympics time trial events.
