Chris Froome has been named as the leader for Team Sky at the Tour de France after the UCI ended its anti-doping investigation in to the four-time winner on Monday.

Froome, 33, is seeking a record-equalling fifth Tour crown and fourth in a row, but organisers had moved to block him from racing at all prior to the investigation into an adverse analytical finding for Salbutamol at La Vuelta last year concluding.

Froome currently holds all three Grand Tour titles after following up last year's Tour and Vuelta wins with victory in the Giro d'Italia in May.

He will be supported in France by a strong line-up which includes fellow Brits Geraint Thomas and Luke Rowe, former world champion Michal Kwiatkowski, Egan Bernal, Jonathan Castroviejo, Gianni Moscon, and Wout Poels.
