Chris Froome will start his 2018 season at the Ruta del Sol (February 14-18) as he begins his preparation for the Giro d'Italia while lawyers and medical experts continue to work behind the scenes to clear his name in the ongoing salbutamol case.

Froome has spent the early part of the year training in South Africa, and will travel to Europe to begin his 2018 season in southern Spain where he took victory in 2015.
