Froome Lawyers fight to save Giro title as Champion begins Tour de France preparation

Tour de France


You may think that after this week’s Giro d’Italia victory the British champion would take some time off to just relax and enjoy his triple Grand Tour win, however, that’s not the case for Chris Froome.


He is determined to rebuilt his name and prove to everyone that he is simply the best, despite the adverse analytical finding which might cost him some of his biggest victories, including last year’s Tour de France title and Vuelta a Espana.


This event has specifically motivated Froome to defend his Tour de France title and once and for all, seal the deal on who truly deserves the biggest Grand Tour crown.


Fighting to prove the innocence


Froome’s lawyers are currently using everything they can find to bring enough evidence that protect the four-time Tour de France winner and show that he isn’t actually guilty and that the anti-doping test which indicated double the amount of the asthma drug salbutamol allowed was in fact completely unintentional and caused by Froome’s physical state at the time the test was conducted.


“I hope for the fastest decision possible. Obviously the next challenge for me has to be the Tour de France,” Froome said.


“I am absolutely certain that when people have the same information as I have, they will understand why I made the decision to continue racing and riding the way I have been. I had every right to be here, as I’ve said before I know I’ve done nothing wrong.”


If he wins this season’s Tour de France, it means it would bring him the fifth title after 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017 ones.


“I have seen riders trying to do a Giro and a Tour and I have seen their shortfalls and their mistakes. It’s a risk, but I think it’s possible. The extra week between will be very helpful. That was a big reason in the decision to go for both. I am obviously up for it but let’s see,” Froome added.
