Team Sky's Chris Froome expresses his wish to challenge for the Tour de France title next year.

Chris Froome has revealed that he is eager to be Team Sky's leading rider at next year's Tour de France.

The 27-year-old was part of the squad that helped Bradley Wiggins become the first British rider to win the Tour in July.

Having sacrificed his own chances for the good of the team earlier this year, Kenya-born Froome is hoping to be given the chance to claim first prize next time around.

"I will only be able to seek one win and I have the Tour in mind," he said. "I think Bradley could be [the leader] on the Giro d'Italia and me on the Tour."

Froome joined Team Sky in 2010.
