Chris Froome is back on his bike after abandoning the Tour de France with fractures and is heading towards the Vuelta a España. Team Sky's general manager, David Brailsford said on Thursday morning that he could be in Spain, even if not to win.

"We'd like to think [he'd return to racing] at the Vuelta, but we want to make sure that he has enough time to get himself ready," Brailsford said. "I think that it's pretty important that he rides the Vuelta, whether he has the condition to be competitive in the Vuelta is a separate thing."
