BRITAIN’S Chris Froome has confirmed the Tour de France is his main goal for 2015 and dismissed previous reservations that the difficulty of the route could scupper his bid to win it for a second time.

Froome had hinted he might forgo cycling’s biggest event and instead target the Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a Espana.

But he said: “There is no doubt that this Tour de France is going to be a tough test, but I enjoy the challenge and there’s no reason why I’d be any worse off than any of the other contenders. It is our responsibility as a team to adapt accordingly so that we can be as competitive as possible there.”
