"There is always a big selection" - Chris Froome aware of challenge ahead of Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race

Chris Froome was optimistic ahead of the Tour Down Under, but throughout the week has struggled within the field, finishing the race within the last riders in the overall classification. His priority is to work on his form however, and his next race comes at the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race.

“It’s always nice to start the season in Australia and I’m really looking forward to getting back to the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race. I’ve raced here once in 2017, but it was a great experience and definitely some of the most beautiful scenery and roads we race on," Froome said in a press release issued by the race organizers.

The Israeli team failed to make a big impression over the Tour Down Under, a lot due to the badly-timed illness of Simon Clarke the days leading up to the race. Daryl Impey has also not shown his best form, but it should be Corbin Strong who will lead the charge for a strong result in the one-day race.

“The crowds in Victoria are amazing so it’s definitely great to see the race return to the cycling calendar after the two-year hiatus. It’s a tough race and there is always a big selection in the finale, so I’ll be looking to help some of our punchy guys like Corbin Strong and Daryl Impey as much as possible,” Froome assured.
