One thing was abundantly clear: Team Sky LOVE Chris Froome's legs and they are mighty proud of them.

Britain's trailblazing professional cycling team, who boast two Tour de France victories, had another thing to brag about this week and that was Froome's "ripped" pins.

Team Sky used their official Twitter page to post a picture of their leading man's legs during training for La Doyenne.

While impressive in an athletic sense, the image of the cyclist's veins protruding all over his legs is rather sickening and not entirely easy to look at.

Still, it's obviously a good thing that his team are so chuffed with how his legs are looking ahead of another very busy and exciting summer for the Brit.

The reigning Tour de France champion, Froome has not been named in his team's nine-man squad for the Giro d'Italia - and neither has Sir Bradley Wiggins.

He will focus all his energies on defending his Tour de France title instead.

The Kenyan-born British rider has not raced the Giro since being disqualified for taking a tow in 2010.
