Ineos Grenadiers have confirmed their squad that will support Chris Froome in his quest to win a third Vuelta a España title.

Froome, winner of the 2011 and 2017 editions of the race, makes his return to Grand Tour racing for the first time since his horrific crash at the 2019 Critérium du Dauphiné. He was overlooked for Ineos' Tour de France squad, but will lead a strong team in Spain over a reduced race of 18 stages instead of 21.
