Froome with a view

May 10, 2016

What happens when you bring together a legendary cyclist and a racing driver with his sights set on the Le Mans 24 Hours? That’s exactly what we wanted to find out.

Marino Franchitti, of Ford Chip Ganassi Racing and Team Sky’s Chris Froome got together as the twice winner of the Tour de France was preparing for the Liège-Bastogne-Liège one-day cycling classic.

Mental preparation, daily diet, and team spirit all come under the microscope in this fascinating video.


And so does the weather.

Snowing when this footage was filmed just a few weeks ago, it all brightened up for Marino last weekend, as he helped to achieve a first podium finish for the team at nearby Spa, in the FIA World Endurance Championship.
