Shock Announcement – Chris Froome has not been included in the Israel-Premier Tech team for the 2023 Tour de France
Yes, Chris Froome has been left out of the Team!
This is the first time since 2011 that Froome will not be competing in the Tour. Unfortunately, he has been struggling to find his form since he was seriously injured in a crash in 2019.
He has not been able to replicate the success he had before the crash, and he has not won a Grand Tour since 2017.
Israel-Premier Tech has decided to focus on Michael Woods for the 2023 Tour de France.
Woods is a strong climber, and he is expected to be a contender for the podium. This years Tour has over 56,400 meters of climbing.
Froome has said that he is disappointed not to be selected for the 2023 Tour de France, but he respects the team’s decision. He has also said that he is still motivated to win at least one more of the Grand Tours, and he is targeting a return to the Tour de France in 2024.
Here are some of the reasons why Froome was left out of the Tour de France:
· He has not been able to consistently show good form in recent races.
· He is not as strong as he used to be before the crash in 2019.
· Israel-Premier Tech is focusing on Michael Woods for the 2023 Tour de France.
Froome is a four-time Tour de France winner, and he is one of the most successful cyclists of all time. However, he has struggled to find his form since the crash in 2019.
It is still very unclear if he will ever be able to return to his previous level of performance.
