The British rider was seriously injured at the Criterium du Dauphine last June, when he broke a leg, his elbow and suffered fractured ribs after crashing into a wall.

Froome underwent surgery and missed the rest of the season but is gearing up for racing again in 2020 with Team INEOS.

Froome, who will turn 35 in May, last won a Grand Tour event when taking victory at the 2018 Giro d'Italia. His Tour de France triumphs came in 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017, while he also has two wins at the Vuelta a Espana on his impressive list of honours.

Monster Rides

On Friday January 10, Froome and team-mates Michal Kwiatkowski and Salvatore Puccio hit the Gran Canaria climbs for a 4.5 hour, 78 mile ride with 7,360 feet of climbing!

Froome conquered the 2 mile climb of Calle De Francisco Pérez Ramírez climb at an average of 6%, 9th place on KOM.

The second ride, on Saturday January 11th was another 80 mile ride in 4.5 hours and 7,910 feet of climbing.

Team Ineos principal Dave Brailsford joined them for the ride!

Then on Sunday, the three Amigos, Froome, Kwiatkoski, Puccio joined by Golas did a huge 98 mile tour of the southern side of the island.

That ride include some huge climbs, including the 15 mile clim of the Complesso Tederas da Horno which averages four per cent.

The guys were out on their bikes for nearly six hours and racked up 12,000 feet of climbing.

So sounds like the media reports in the Italian newspapers about Froome being out of form and struggling weren't exactly true?
