Froome vows to race on, despite probe

'As it stands, I'm as focused as ever on the season ahead and I'll look to be in my best shape for the start of the Giro, ' he said.

In the end it was almost overshadowed by the cycling, and one of the more dramatic finishes to a bike race, when the Italian Sacha Modolo prematurely celebrated only to see French rider Thomas Boudat lunge over the line and win by the width of a tyre. He needs miles in his legs to prepare for his bigger objectives: the Giro d'Italia, which starts on May 4, and the Tour de France, starting July 7, where he would be chasing a record-equalling fifth victory.

Chris Froome has spoken to the cycling media for the first time since his salbutamol case stating that there is 'a lot of misinformation out there' surrounding the case and that 'people will see it from my point of view' when the issue is resolved.

If Froome can convince the UCI that no wrongdoing took place, Team Sky will be exonerated.

"What was very touching was how many riders from other teams came up to me during the stage to offer their support". Cycling's international governing body (UCI) still has to make a ruling on the case and has asked Froome to explain why twice the allowed limit showed up in his sample. Chris Froome has returned to racing despite being under investigation by cycling's world governing body for failing a doping test. Froome is participating in the five-day Ruta del Sol in southern Spain.

Team Sky and Froome could have opted for a voluntary suspension once informed of the adverse finding because, if a ban is eventually imposed, this credit could have seen the ban backdated to September, allowing him to return to racing earlier.

Team principal Dave Brailsford said: "We all recognize that these are difficult circumstances but it's important for all sides that this process is conducted fairly before a final conclusion is reached". "We're going as fast as we can on it and hopefully get it resolved as soon as possible". "It was great to catch up and amazing to see the support", he said.
