Froome defends his drug test result saying it won’t affect his Tour de France plans

Chris Froome Ruta del Sol


Feb. 14 – Team Sky’s Froome says “when the real facts are out, people will start to see things from my point of view”.


Apparently, the four-time Tour de France winner is planning to step up in the game and prove to the public that he isn’t to take any blame for the adverse drugs test that indicated twice the permitted amount of salbutamol last year while at the Vuleta a Espana.


Team Sky’s champion has finally spoken ahead of Ruta del Sol about his delicate doping case saying that even though he knew that the last months had been quite difficult for him, his fans and everyone involved in the sport, his team is working really hard to get the delicate resolved asap.


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.
