Start next to Froome at L’Etape London

Chris Froome

Keen cyclists can win a ride alongside Tour de France winner Chris Froome at the L’Etape London event in September.

Entrants to the BeInspired competition will be in with a chance to meet British star Froome on September 25, shake hands and start next to him.

What happens after that who knows? He’ll probably just speed off and leave you in a haze of dust and astonishment …

Now a three-time Tour de France victor, Froome is among leading cyclists competing in the RideLondon-Surrey event on Sunday.

“I?m really looking forward to it,” Froome said. “Every year there are more and more British fans who come out to every corner of France to see the Tour.

“They really make their presence felt and give brilliant backing to me, Team Sky and the other British riders.

“It makes such a huge difference and so it will be good to return the favour and come back to ride in the UK and thank them for that support.”

And Froome insists he is fully fit after crashing during Stage 19 of the Tour.

“Obviously it?s never nice when you crash but I was lucky that I didn?t suffer anything worse than the normal road rash and bumps and bruises,” he said.

“I wasn?t the only person to come off in the wet during the descent on Stage 19.

“Some riders suffered much worse injuries than me and so even though it was a real fright at the time, coming so close to the end of the Tour, I can be thankful it wasn?t a lot worse.

“The crash on Ventoux is obviously one that will live long in the memory, but my bike came off a lot worse than I did!”
