Froome draws inspiration from Brady, eyes fifth Tour title

Chris Froome will look to put mind over matter as he bids for a record-equalling fifth Tour de France title this year and the 35-year-old says he wants to join the growing ranks of athletes competing at the top level late into their career.

Froome said he could see himself racing into his 40s and pointed to the example of Tampa Bay’s 43-year-old quarterback Tom Brady, who won his seventh Super Bowl crown this month.

“It is going to be a huge task but with four titles, I’ve come so close to the record. There’s nothing holding me back any more,” Froome told the Guardian.
