Froome eyes further glory

Team Sky’s Chris Froome (8/11 – 2014 Tour de France Outright) has revealed his determination to win the 2014 Tour de France after securing the most prestigious event in cycling on Sunday.

The 28-year-old completed the 21st stage of the Tour in Paris to become the second successive Briton to win the competition following Bradley Wiggins’ victory last year.

Having spent over 80 hours in the saddle over the past few weeks, Froome is looking forward to some time away from the bike.

However, the Kenyan-born cyclist already has one eye set on the Tour de France next year and is hoping he will be able to get the better of the likes of Nairo Quintana and Vicenzo Nibali (7/1 – 2014 Tour de France Outright).

He said: “It’s definitely been worth the hard work. It’s been a real hard journey to get here and it’s taken years to be able to get into this position but it’s so worth it.

“I hadn’t really thought past getting to the finish line but the Tour de France is special and something I’d love to come back and keep targeting in the future.

“I think in cycling it’s so easy for people to get drawn towards the result achieved by the individual but it really is so much more than that.”
