Two years on from his horrific crash at the 2019 edition of the Critérium du Dauphiné, Chris Froome is still battling his way back from the injuries he sustained there and has returned to the French stage race hoping to see some progress. 

After a recent three-week altitude camp in Tenerife, the four-time Tour de France winner believes he has made improvements of late, and is hoping to see that replicated in his performances over the next eight days.
