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 and the 2018 Giro d’Italia.
Though it took too long, the case to disqualify Juan José Cobo from the 2011 Vuelta is an important milestone in the fight for clean sport.
Despite a promising first week, hopes of a tightly bound GC battle have succumbed to the suffocating dominance of Team Ineos.
With the disqualification of Juan Jose Cobo, Froome now becomes the official winner of the 2011 Vuelta a España.
