Ready for the new season


“It’s been a difficult period. These are not normal circumstances. And obviously this was meant to be a confidential process which has been made public. But we’re doing our best to get this resolved.


“I’ve been getting my head down and focusing on my training and getting ready for the season ahead. We’re working as hard as we can to try and resolve this. No one wants this resolved more quickly than I do,” Froome said.


“It’s a difficult time for everyone. It’s difficult for fans, it’s difficult for riders but the support I’ve received has been incredible, it’s been a huge help in this difficult time.


Froome admitted to have received an amazing support from his fans, teammates and everyone around him.  “The support has been amazing, and that goes for other riders as well, the support from within the peloton has been incredible,” he added.
