Tour de France champion Chris Froome eyes Vuelta a Espana glory as he aims to become first British rider to win historic race
Tour de France champion Chris Froome will race in the Vuelta a Espana as he bids to become the first rider in 22 years to win both events in the same year, and the first British champion of the Grand Tour race.
Nobody has triumphed at the Tour and Vuelta back-to-back since 1995 when the Vuelta was moved from April to take place in August and September.
Froome, who claimed his fourth yellow jersey in Paris on Sunday, has finished second three times but never won the Spanish race.
