I don't really know a lot about Chris Froome. When I saw local headlines that England won the Tour for the second year, I checked what part of Britain he comes from. The local papers don't always differentiate British and English (as with Andy Murray, who is Scottish). It turns out that Froome is from the Kenyan part of Britain. First the Kenyans took over the marathons, now the Tour. Oh, and Bradley Wiggins is from the Belgium part of Britain.

I'm pretty burned out on reading "the Kenyan born Brit..." that starts every story about him.

Love the article in VN featuring his Rwandan MTBs mentor. Apparently Froome has never beat him. Maybe there is a rematch in the making. At least for a reality tv show.
