Christopher Clive Froome, is a British-Kenyan road racing cyclist, who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Ineos Grenadiers, although, in July 2020, it was announced that he would join Israel Start-Up Nation for the 2021 season. He has won several stage races, including four editions of the Tour de France, the Giro d'Italia in 2018 and the Vuelta a España twice. Froome has also won two Olympic bronze medals in road time trials, in 2012 and 2016, and also took bronze in the 2017 World Championships. Throughout his career Froome has faced a series of allegations that he exploited a loophole in cycling’s anti-doping regulations to use a performance-enhancing drug. Froome was born in Kenya to British parents and grew up there and in South Africa. Since 2011 he's been a resident in Monaco. At the age of 22, Froome turned professional with Team Konica Minolta. In 2008, he joined the team Barloworld. The same year he moved to Italy and started to ride under a British licence. In 2010, he moved to Team Sky and has since become one of the team's key cyclists. Froome made his breakthrough as a Grand Tour contender during the 2011 Vuelta a España where he finished second overall, later promoted to first, retrospectively becoming the first British cyclist to win a Grand Tour cycling event. At the 2012 Tour de France, riding as a super-domestique for Bradley Wiggins, Froome won stage seven and finished second overall, behind Wiggins.
