Softly spoken, unfailingly polite but endowed with steely determination, Chris Froome somehow doesn't look like a sporting superstar.Tall,Yet the three-time Tour de France champion is a fearsome creature once astride his bicycle, and he proved that this year more so than ever before.Froome intends to carry on challenging for Tour victory for another "five or six years" and with three crowns already to his name – and this year's performance his most dominant yet – there is little reason to suspect that he won't match, or perhaps even beat, the record five titles won by Belgium's Eddy Merckx, Frenchmen Jacques Anquetil and Bernard Hinault, and Miguel Indurain of Spain.Unlike Merckx, but similar to disgraced former champion Lance Armstrong (who won seven Tours but has had his name erased from the record books over doping), Froome's focus is very much on the Tour, and the Tour alone.
