After winning the Tour de France and Vuelta a España in 2017, Froome should aim to go one better and win all three Grand Tours in 2018, according to the director of the Giro d'Italia.

Froome has not ridden the Giro d'Italia since 2010 - when he was disqualified for holding on to a motorbike - but Giro director Mauro Vegni hopes to tempt the Team Sky rider back to Italy, challenging him to aim for an unprecedented Grand Tour triple crown.
