Froome-dog sets his sights on the Rainbow Jersey.With the route set to favour climbers, it is a rare chance for Froome to join Tom Simpson and Mark Cavendish in the elite list of British riders to win the rainbow jersey.
And after adding the maillot jaune and three stage victories to an already successful 2013, ‘Froome-dog’ has vowed there will be no let-up.
“I want to try to stay on it, to see the season through and not just switch off after the Tour,” he said.
“I’d like to get through to the World Championships because it’s an event that doesn’t often favour climbers the way it does this year. It’s a great opportunity to go for it.
“It would be amazing. My focus has just been on the Tour up until now but being world champ, that’s probably the second biggest thing after wearing the yellow jersey.”
