Four-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome at the Czech Tour! 

One of the most famous riders in cycling history, Chris Froome, will be racing in the Czech Tour, the biggest stage race in the Czech Republic. The British rider will be in action from July 27 to 30 with the seven-rider Israel - Premier Tech team.

Chris Froome has triumphed four times in the General Classification of the Tour de France and has also dominated the other Grand Tours: the Vuelta a España and the Giro d'Italia. "This is fantastic news, Chris is a cycling icon and his participation in the Czech Tour is a unique opportunity for our fans to see him race in the Czech Republic," said race director Leopold König, Froome's former Team Sky teammate. 

“I am really looking forward to racing for the first time in the Czech Republic at the Czech Tour. It is especially exciting to reunite with my former teammate Leopold König, who was on my Tour de France winning team with me in 2015, and see the race that he is now directing. I am coming off a good block of training ready to start the second part of the season with four tough days of racing,” added Chris Froome.

The Czech Tour will offer great competition this year, with three WorldTour squads among the 21 teams: BORA - hansgrohe, Intermarché - Circus - Wanty and Jumbo-Visma. Top Czech riders will also be at the start. The cyclists will have four hard days ahead of them, with the Queen Stage scheduled for Saturday, when the riders will have to climb almost 3,500 vertical metres.
