Chris Froome will lead the Great Britain team as he bids to emulate the feat of decorated compatriot Bradley Wiggins when the Olympic cycling road race takes place Saturday. Four years ago, Wiggins followed up becoming the first ever Briton to win the Tour de France by adding Olympic gold in London and later went on to be voted his country's sportsman of the year.That final accolade is one to have escaped Froome, despite his Tour dominance since Wiggins' trailblazing success – Froome has won it three times in four years.Froome is one of the best climbers in the world and he should be rubbing shoulders with the specialist punchers – one-day classics experts – when Saturday's race gets to its business end with three ascensions of a 9 km climb in the final third.
