Having returned from his holidays and now back with Team Sky in their pre-season October camp, Chris Froome has hinted he might be interested in a ride at the Giro d'Italia next year after the route was leaked on Monday night.

The official Giro d'Italia 2017 route will be revealed by organiser RCS on Tuesday in Milan, but it is likely to feature more time trial kilometres than the Tour de France's total of 36km, including a time trial on the final day to Milan.
