Froome, who spent more than three weeks in hospital after breaking his neck, femur, elbow, hip and ribs in a high-speed crash last year, returned to action in February but was far from being in great shape and there were doubts he had enough. it’s time to get in shape for the biggest race on the calendar.
“I feel like I’m on the right path for the Tour de France,” Froome, 35, told Cycling News on the Route d’Occitanie, his first race since the cycling season was suspended in February.
“There is still a bit of work to be done, but it’s all part of the preparation for the Tour. The delay in major races helped me take the next step in terms of getting back to my normal state. I think that given where we are now, with about a month before the Tour, I am on the right path. I am happy with where I am. ”
Froome has won the Tour four times with Team Ineos but will leave the British squad at the end of the season. “There are going to be a lot of changes, but it’s still a few months away, so I’m not really thinking about it now. I’m just focusing on the best of myself for the rest of the season, ”he added.
