LONDON: Chris Froome has withdrawn from the midweek time-trial at the world road championships to focus on Sunday’s road race, confirmed British Cycling.
The 27-year-old wanted more time to recover ahead of Sunday’s road race in Limburg, Netherlands when Mark Cavendish will ride in defence of his title. Froome’s non-participation means Alex Dowsett is Britain’s sole entrant in the elite men’s time-trial on today.
