Reigning Tour de France champion Chris Froome has descended on the Dales to ride parts of the Grand Depart stage one route.

The 29-year-old Briton who is among the favourites to claim the 2014 crown took to his racing bike to test the terrain in sections of Swaledale, North Yorkshire, yesterday.

Froome has been in fine form this year having already secured overall victory in the Tour of Oman, and most recently in the Tour de Romandie in Switzerland.
