Chris Froome will make his Israel Start-Up Nation debut at the Vuelta a San Juan in January. The four-time Tour de France winner will use the season opener to kick-start his campaign in his new team colours after leaving Ineos Grenadiers over the winter.

Froome has never taken part in the Argentine stage race before but the event has grown in recent years, with several WorldTour teams using the event as an alternative to the Tour Down Under.
