Chris Froome earns yellow jersey, £2.10 in Deliveroo tips

Chris Froome earns yellow jersey

Despite suffering mechanical issues, Chris Froome managed to recover to lead the Tour de France, retaining the famous yellow jersey and making four deliveries across stage 15.

Initially reported as a puncture, Chris actually suffered a broken spoke after leaving his bike chained in front of a Pizza Express.

“After the mechanical issue, I thought it was game over for me” explained an exhausted Froome.
“Fortunately we managed to get it fixed fairly quickly, although the customer has left negative feedback, which is a disappointment”

His efforts have ensured that he retains the yellow jersey into stage 16.

“It is a fantastic honour to claim the yellow jersey. Although sadly I won’t be able to wear it until after the tour as it is not official Deliveroo uniform.”

He had lost the yellow jersey to Fabio Aru, who rides for Pro Team Astana/Uber Eats on stage 12, after having to return 4km back to a kebab shop for a tub of chili sauce.

Chris now takes an 18 second lead into stage 16, which will feature a tricky 30km descent, taking Froome from Saint Felicien to Tain-L’Hermitage with four curries, naan and a 2l bottle of coke on board.
