Chris Froome is out of contract at the end of 2020 but the British rider has no plans to retire just yet. The 34-year-old is currently coming back from a series of injuries – including a broken leg - sustained at the Critérium du Dauphiné last June, with the UAE Tour marking his first competitive outing in eight months.

Froome has been at Team Ineos since signing with the squad's former backers, Sky, in 2010 and has gone on to establish himself as one of the most successful Grand Tour riders in history, with four Tour de France victories along with one at the Giro d'Italia and two at the Vuelta a España.
