Just a few years ago we did not have anyone who could podium, but now we have two cyclists who can win the Tour in consecutive years. It is a phenomenal achievement and what Chris has done is phenomenal -- Sir Chris Hoy Even though we don't see each other so much anymore he has lived in my dreams. He (was) wearing the yellow jersey every day and I almost felt I was wearing it myself -- David Kinjah, Chris Froome's former cycling mentor and coach, Safari Simbaz Chris Froome is an absolutely phenominal athlete. It blows my mind how incredible his performances have been -- Victoria Pendleton The key to (Chris's) success is his mental resilience. He might look like an unlikely strong man at first glance, but I wouldn't let that fool you. Beneath the surface there is a real fighter. He's a tough guy -- Sir Dave Brailsford A brutally tough upbringing -- Paul Kimmage Froome's story is an intriguing one -- Richard Williams * Guardian * Hard to beat for a top pro's perspective * Financial Times * In this engaging memoir, Froome recalls his childhood in Nairobi, gives a vividly evoked account of his victory and doesn't attempt to gloss over the rivalry between the two Team Sky riders * Mail on Sunday, Books of the Year *
Bloggat om The Climb
Chris Froome was born in Nairobi to British parents. He was educated and raised in South Africa and now races for Team GB and Team Sky. He is undoubtedly the finest Grand Tour cyclist of his generation and is the first man since Bernad Hinault to hold all three Grand Tours at the same time. His escape on the Colle delle Finestre during Stage 19 of the 2018 Giro D'Italia, that secured him the Maglia Rosa, was roundly considered one of the most daring attacks in modern cycling history.
