As a four-time Tour de France champion, Chris Froome is used to winning, but the Briton has suffered a long wait to finally land the Vuelta a Espana.However, Froome recognized that finally standing on top of the podium in Madrid in the leader's red jersey brought out different emotions to his Tour triumphs having fallen just short with three second-placed finishes in 2011, 2014 and 2016 .It was seven years ago when Froome suddenly announced himself as a Grand Tour contender when he finished second by just 13 seconds despite operating as a domestique for Team Sky's then leader Bradley Wiggins.Sky and Froome aren't accustomed to settling for second.
