Chris Froome returned to his home country to compete for the Du Rwanda Tour in Africa, which takes place this week.

“I had a hole on the front wheel and didn’t have a team car behind me because they had already pulled the team’s car. I got another neutral service wheel, but it wasn’t really compatible with the motorcycle, so I had to stop again and change -lo with my team. So the platoon picked me up and went up at the top of the climb and that’s when the lights went out for me, ”said Chris Froome over Tour Du Rwanda.

The cyclist stressed that his great goal awaits him in the middle of the year: “I’m very happy to be here. I’m realistic – I will not win this tour of Rwanda because I am not in the best way to win the races. My big goal will be in July For the France Tour, then now my preparation for July begins. “
Chris Froome also reported that since he left Kenya, he realized how much the sport has improved and believes there will be more achievements ahead. “I would love to make more races in Africa and I think Africa will definitely be the continent where we’ll see the biggest cycling profiles in the next decade.”
The athlete stressed that competitions such as the 2025 Road Cycling Championship, which will be headquartered in Africa for the first time, are extremely important to boost young cyclists and show that it is possible to reach different levels in sport.
