Chris Froome on brink to pack an historic victory of Vuelta a Espana

Chris Froome on brink to pack an historic victory of Vuelta a Espana

Chris Froome Vuelta a Espana

 

One of the biggest bike events of 2017, Vuelta a Espana, will soon crown his new British king. Chris Froome will officially become the first ever British rider to win one of the biggest bike racing events of the year.

 

He will also be the first man in history to ever win Spain’s biggest bike event of 2017 straight after winning the world’s other grand Tour; Tour de France.


The 32-year old cyclist challenged his nearest rival, Italian Vincenzo Nibali and broke into tears after crossing the finish line of the yesterday’s stage. He admitted this grand tour to have been the most challenging and difficult he has ever ridden.

 

The best team

 

So far, team Sky’s riders were the strongest and made the best team of the Spain’s tour. The same thing they did at Le Tour a couple of months ago. However, their extraordinary and consecutive performances have raised some serious questions. Team Sky had an outstanding Anti-Doping investigation history that involved the usage of painkillers and the famous jiffy bag part of the 2011 Criterium du Dauphine tour.

 

Sadly, they lost many of their fans following their last year’s exposure by a few Russian hackers that suggested Bradley Wiggins’ use of Therapeutic Use Exemptions.

 

However, these unfortunate events should never fade away Froome and the team Sky’s other amazing riders’ performances, work and talent.


“I think he deserves not only to win Sports Personality of the Year, but he deserves a knighthood,” former Vuelta a Espana winner, Sean Kelly told Eurosport.

 

“I think Froome, at the moment, is getting very close to being at the top of the rankings all-time. Alongside the likes of Bernard Hinault and Miguel Indurain, the guys who won five Tour de France titles as well as Giros and Vueltas.”
