This great video shows Team Sky and Chris Froome as they prepare for the upcoming 2018 Giro d’Italia. We found it particularly interesting to see the amount of support and preparation the team provides to the best rider in the world on his training ride.
If Chris can indeed win the Giro d’Italia, he will have won all three Grand Tours in succession, Chris won the 2017 Tour de France, he then went on to win the 2017 Vuelta a España. We are really looking forward to this years Giro d’Italia, there’s a great line up of riders set to challenge 2017 winner Tom Dumoulin for the title.
Also of note it’s interesting to hear Chris say he used a compact crankset with 34tooth chainring and a 32 tooth rear cassette for the rekki climb up the infamous Monte Zoncolan. Those of you who may have ridden the Monte Zoncolan will understand the intensity of this climb, if you’ve not done Monte Zoncolan put it on your bucket list, it’s an incredible ride.
Enjoy the video (10 minutes).
