The route for the 2014 race was finalised yesterday and includes two stages in Yorkshire, plus one from Cambridge to London where a sprint finish at The Mall is expected.
The Tour also includes five mountain finishes and a time-trial on the 20th and penultimate stage.
And Froome admits to some trepidation about racing in front of a home crowd.
“I was bowled over at the support we had in France so I can only imagine what it is going to be like over in Yorkshire,” he said.
“It is going to be massive. It certainly gives a little bit of added pressure too I’m sure.”
The 101st edition of the Tour begins on 5 July and concludes with a traditional circuit round the Champs-Elysees in Paris on 27 July.
