Tour support 'out of this world' - Froome
- From the section Cycling
Defending Tour de France champion Chris Froome says the support for the opening Yorkshire leg of this year's race has been "out of this world".
The event begins in Leeds on Saturday and the Team Sky rider says that it will not simply be a race between Alberto Contador and himself.
Meanwhile, Froome admits it was a "shock" and a "shame" to discover that friend and former team-mate Daryl Impey had failed a drugs test.
