With a bit of quick thinking and strong teamwork, Team Sky averts disaster when Chris Froome has a mechanical in the heat of stage 15.
Since his first Tour de France win in 2013, Chris Froome has been the GC rider of reference in the Tour. Through 2016, the Brit won three yellow jerseys (2013, 2015, 2016), a polka-dot jersey (2015), and six stages along the way, plus he won a stage in the 2012 Tour.
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.
