Four-time winner Chris Froome is returning to the Tour de France as a support rider.
He will try to help Canadian rider Michael Woods win for their Israel Start-Up Nation team.
“Although my ambitions this year won’t be as leader, I hope to add my experience and support to the team as best I can as road captain,” Froome said in a statement on the team website on Tuesday.
The British rider won the Tour in 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017, but missed the last two races after a career-threatening crash. He broke a femur, elbow and ribs in June 2019 after hitting a wall while training at the Criterium du Dauphine.
