MORZINE, France (AP) – Don’t expect Chris Froome to indulge in big celebrations on the Champs Elysees. After effectively securing a third Tour de France title on Saturday, the Kenyan-born British rider has already turned his focus to the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.
Froome, a bronze Olympic medalist in the time trial four years ago in London, will once again be among the favorites in the race against the clock in Brazil.
Froome even beat specialist Tom Dumoulin in his favorite discipline in Thursday’s second time trial.
“I think it’s a course (in Rio) that suits me well, there’s almost a thousand meters of climbing and it’s almost 60 kilometers in length,” said Froome, who will also compete in the road race in Rio.
