Chris Froome has always been in the news for his great achievements in cycling but this time it is something different. The former Tour de France winner was seen to have fearing blisters and was left to feel the burn after the full fledged training in South Africa.
This is the first time that such a thing has happened to him and his fiancée Michelle Cound says that it is due to his negligence that he is facing such consequences. She is of the opinion that Froome refused to apply enough sunscreen before going for practice and that has resulted in these blisters.
She also posted a picture of Froome’s back side which had become red. The picture was a proof of the temperature in which he has been training and his fiancée also said that if this continues then it would be difficult for him to participate in the championships.
The team members of Froome also saw and they said that the team kit must have had some problem. The mesh jersey of Team Sky has clearly not suited Froome although it was made keeping in mind the rider’s comfort. Mesh jerseys of Team Sky are known to keep the rider cool and feel minimum weight while riding even if it was the hottest day of the year.
However the plan has clearly backfired and Team Sky would have to come up with something better this time to make sure their riders are safe. The picture that was posted by Michelle Cound clearly shows the downside of his jersey. Froome will be defending the Tour de France championship this season but if the jerseys continue to be like this then it may become a challenge for him. The manager of the team has said that they will definitely look into the matter and will surely try to come up with a better jersey for Froome and also for the other riders.
