Froome set to win the Tour de France

chris froomePity Wiggia’s not still here, so it will have to be me mentioning it.

If you look at the past few results [further down], including tomorrow’s, that makes 4 out of 5 for British riders, which is pretty impressive but all the more impressive for Chris Froome, it will be [if he doesn’t have an accident] his third and back-to-back at that.

Chris Froome is set to become the first Briton to win three Tour de France titles after safely negotiating a rain-soaked penultimate stage in the Alps.

The stormy weather made for treacherous racing on slippery roads but Team Sky’s Froome survived the final descent into Morzine to maintain his overall lead.

Froome’s lead over Romain Bardet of four minutes five seconds will not be tested on the final stage in Paris.
