The Climb

Chris Froome

'Ride your bike. Follow your dreams'. Chris Froome's journey has been unlike any other in the history of cycling. As a boy he raced through townships and passed wild animals in Kenya. As a 21-year-old, with no possibilities for an aspiring cyclist, he entered himself into the world championships as the sole rider and manager for Kenya's national team (he even made his own shirt). In 2013, he rode his bike up the Alpine slopes of the Tour de France to victory. The Climb reveals the passion and will to win that has seen him overcome the death of his mother, a debilitating illness, a fierce rivalry with Bradley Wiggins and, most recently, the pressures of Lance Armstrong's dark legacy.

Chris Froome was born in Nairobi to British parents. He was educated and raised in South Africa and now races for Team GB and Team Sky. Before he won the Tour de France, he finished runner-up in 2012, when he helped Bradley Wiggins to overall victory.
