Froome: «I couldn't be happier»

interview22.07.2012Stage 20- Rambouillet / Paris Champs-�lysées

It was suggested that the runner-up in the 2012 Tour could win... if he changed teams but Christopher Froome explained that he believes he might yet get that chance... with Sky.

“I'm blown away by what we as a team have achieved these last three weeks as a team; it's monumental. Also, for a team that's relatively new to cycling – this is only the third year for Team Sky now – so for us to have two riders standing on the top two steps of the podium on the Champs-Elysées... it's really something special. Hopefully it's set the precedent for us going forward in the future.
“I surprised myself. I knew I had very good condition coming into this race but you never know where your opposition is at and I was never confident that I would be right at the top of the sport. I'm really happy to be in this position and I hope to keep competing like this in the future.
“I might not need to change my team to be a winner of the Tour de France. I'd love to win it one day and let's see... I've learned so much this year being right there at the front of the race but not having the pressure of being the leader. I'm going to take that experience away and hopefully learn for the future.
“I never saw this day coming so I couldn't be happier.”
