  • Chris Froome retournera sur le Tour d'Italie pour la première fois depuis 2010. Il tentera le doublé Giro-Tour

Le Britannique Chris Froome, quatre fois vainqueur du Tour de France, a annoncé mercredi qu'il participerait la saison prochaine au Tour d'Italie, le seul grand Tour cycliste qu'il n'a pas encore gagné. "Je suis impatient de vous retrouver sur la ligne de départ du Giro 2018 ", a-t-il déclaré dans un bref message vidéo diffusé à Milan durant la présentation de l'itinéraire de la course.

Froome a remporté l'an dernier le Tour de France et le Tour d'Espagne.

S'il parvenait à remporter le Giro 2018, Froome entrerait aussi dans l'histoire comme le troisième coureur à détenir en même temps les trois Grands Tours, après Bernard Hinault (1982-1983) et Eddy Merckx (1972-1973).
