Team News: Froome lead’s Sky at Vuelta

Team Press Release

The 71st edition of the Spanish Grand Tour starts with a team time trial in Ourense on Saturday 20th August, before culminating with a sprinter-friendly stage in Madrid on Sunday 11th September.

Chris Froome leads the team and will be looking to continue the momentum that has seen him claim a third Tour de France title, in addition to an Olympic bronze medal in the time trial this season.

Looking ahead to the Vuelta, Chris Froome said: “It’s already been a great summer for both myself and the team, but the Vuelta is another big challenge for us. The tough course and stiff competition is bound to make for some aggressive racing. We’re going there with a strong group of guys who have a lot of experience with this race. The Vuelta is a race I really enjoy and where I guess you could say I have unfinished business, so I’m looking forward to getting started”.

The 2016 Team Sky Vuelta a Espana lineup in full: Chris Froome, Ian Boswell, Michal Golas, Pete Kennaugh, Christian Knees, Michal Kwiatkowski, Mikel Landa, Salvatore Puccio and Leo Konig
