Chris Froome, despite skipping Tirreno-Adriatico, is progressing well towards the Tour de France in July said Team Sky's boss, Dave Brailsford. An injured back forced him out of the stage race this week and to train at home.

"He was second in the Tour de France the year he skipped Paris-Nice," Brailsford told journalists including Cycling Weekly. "The condition that he's in at the minute... It would've been nice to race here, don't get me wrong, but I don't think it's of any great concern from a physical perspective."
