A question mark may hang over Chris Froome's participation in the upcoming Tour de France, but Froome himself believes he will be firing on all cylinders when the Grand Départ in Nice takes place in four weeks' time. 

Speaking just before the second stage of the Route d'Occitanie, Froome said, "I feel like I'm on the right trajectory in terms of the Tour de France. There's still a bit of work to do, but that's all part of the Tour build-up."
