While this week's UAE Tour has seen the 2020 Tour de France champion – UAE Team Emirates' Tadej Pogačar – take control of the race with a series of impressive performances, Chris Froome, the man with the most Tour wins in the peloton, is just starting his career at new team Israel Start-Up Nation.

The Briton, who is chasing a record-equalling fifth Tour victory with the Israeli squad, is still working his way back to his past form 20 months after a near career-ending crash at the 2019 Critérium du Dauphiné.
