While the Critérium du Dauphiné starts this Sunday, Chris Froome showed on his Youtube account some pictures of his training camp with his teammates in Tenerife.
And the runner of Israel Start Up Nation is not going four ways. He started with 5,000 meters of elevation gain. And then, the next day, Froome took the opportunity to do some climbs at 25 to 30% in the north of the island, including the steepest climb in the world according to the rider.
“These hills you have to go hard enough just to go up them and you can never see the top. And the moment you get to the top you get to the corner and the road starts up again. Some percentages are greater than 25, 30%. It was a bad surprise for my teammates to finish training camp like this, but they will thank me in July “, said the runner.
Chris Froome will be at the start of the Critérium du Dauphiné on Sunday in Issoire. The Briton comes to prepare for the Tour de France and will not be the leader of the team since this role will be occupied by the Belgian Ben Hermans.
