Chris Froome (Israel Start-Up Nation) will end his 2021 season with Saturday’s Il Lombardia and then Monday’s Coppa Agostoni race in northern Italy, opting not to ride the individual time trial at the British Championships despite having entered the event.  

The Kenyan-born Briton will end this season with 70 race days on his calendar, combined with a multitude of training camps, plus hours and hours of gym work to help complete his recovery from the terrible 2019 Critérium du Dauphiné accident.
