Director sportive Cherie Pridham has reiterated Israel Start-Up Nation’s desire to help Chris Froome win a record-equaling fifth Tour de France after the British rider moved across from Ineos Grenadiers during the off-season.

Froome spent 11 years on the British WorldTour team, winning four editions of the Tour de France, a Giro d’Italia, and two editions of the Vuelta a España.  At the 2019 Criterium du Dauphine, however, he suffered a career-threatening crash during a recon ride for the individual time trial and was forced to miss the rest of the year.
