The six-time Grand Tour winner recently completed a second training stint in Tenerife and has pronounced himself happy with his form ahead of his fifth race outing of the year.
With three victories at the Dauphine already on his palmares, Froome has often used the prestigious event as a final build-up race to the Tour de France. He will be supported at the Dauphine by Vasil Kiryienka, Michal Kwiatkowski, Gianni Moscon, Wout Poels, Ian Stannard and Dylan van Baarle.
Speaking after returning from Tenerife, Froome told TeamINEOS.com: “This approach and build-up to July is something we’ve tried and tested quite a few times over the years now. Our camp went really well, and as always at the second camp in Tenerife I start to feel a lot more ready for racing. Now I’m looking forward to pinning on some numbers at the Dauphine.
