Froome and the Sky Team posted pictures on Twitter as they scoped out the first stage in Puerto Banus.

Upon discovering that large sections of the 7.4 km course were covered in uneven dirt, sand and rubber mats, Froome reached out to the Cyclistes Professionnels Associes for a comment on the conditions.

Other riders were not so diplomatic, with Sky teammate Nicolas Roche tweeting, ‘Are you joking????’
