Chris Froome will retire from Ineos at the end of the season, racing for Israel Start-Up Nation, Dave Brailsford said the cause.
Although UCI’s professional road bike racing village has not been able to resume the tournaments, it has witnessed a great event. British horned Chris Froome, who has won the Tour de France’s four-time yellow jersey for the Tour de France, decided to break up with the Ineos team (formerly the mighty Sky team) at the end of this season to move to Israel.
Chris Froome said goodbye to Ineos
The 35-year-old racer was born in Nairobi (Kenya), who won the title of individual champion in all three grand tournaments. This includes Tour de France (Grand Tour in France), Giro d’Italia (Grand Tour in Italy) and Vuelta an Espana (Grand Tour in Spain), recently signed a long-term contract with the Israel Start-Up Nation bicycle racing team (only established from 2015 to present) and will leave Ineos at the end of this season, after 10 years of sticking together.
The fact that Froome, a veteran expert at Tour de France, announced his decision to break up Ineos in the middle of the season. This caused a lot of turmoil and disturbance. But clearly, people can understand his decision.
Although he will bid farewell to Ineos later this season, Froome’s name is still “structured” on the roster of teams attending the Tour de France 2020, with Bernal and Thomas. His goal is still aiming to win the 5th gold shirt, but “must depend on the situation” on the track.
Froome also said goodbye to the racing team
To clarify all the issues, shortly after, Brailsford gave a more detailed explanation of the reason Froome had to break up with Ineos. Cycling commentator Brian Nygaard (Danish, who used to be a media official when Ineos was named Sky) was very interested in Froome’s “new move” and excitedly waited for him to face the team.
