Froome test


Chris Froome has admitted missing a drugs test, but accepted he was culpable.

Froome was subjected to innuendo and scrutiny while winning the 2013 Tour de France. The 30-year-old, is preparing to lead Team Sky into this year's Tour, which begins on July 4 in Utrecht, Holland. His missed test came earlier this year during a short break in Italy with wife Michelle, when staff at the luxury hotel where they were staying refused to allow anti-doping testers to disturb the couple.
