Chris Froome ready to show his form at the Tour of Alps before Giro d’Italia

The four-time Tour de France winner may not have performed very well so far in the season, claiming higher than seventh position in each race he has become part of, but his confidence levels are seem to keep on increasing.


Chris Froome admitted to feeling more ready than ever hoping to see a significant improvement at the final event, the Tour of Alps, before the grand tour; Giro d’Italia.


Froome, 32, while dealing with what’s has been the most difficult situation in his career, the salbutamol case which may risk him everything he has achieved so  far, was only able to finish 10th in the Ruta del Sol and 34th at Tirreno-Adriatico.


“I’m confident that I’m where I need to be at the moment. Like I was last year with the goals of the Tour and the Vuelta. Winning big before events always gives you confidence and it’s great for morale, but it’s not a prerequisite, it’s not the be all and end all,” Froome said.


“I’m not here to send signals or anything like that. I’d be really happy if I could see a progression from when I last raced in Tirreno-Adriatico. That would make me very happy.”


The toughest stage tour happening now


Froome is currently riding the Tour of the Alps which is taking place in Arco today. The tour contains five stages which present the toughest parcours that any other stage event has with rider climbing more 13,000m.


“I’m really looking forward to the week ahead,” Froome added. “Quite a few riders have come back from a good block of training at altitude. So it will be interesting to see where my rivals are in terms of their condition. It’s also a great race for the team and for us to narrow down the selection of the squad for the Giro d’Italia.
