Chris Froome visits Kenya

The 2013 Tour de France champion, Chris Froome was in Kenya in November for a two week holiday to take a "break" from the busy cycling circuit, before heading out to Spain later in the year for training to defend his title.

Froome, a favourite during the 2013 Tour de France cycling championship, went on to win the overall title, becoming the first British Kenyan-born to win the coveted title and only the second Briton to hold it.

During the holiday Froome also met his childhood friend and mentor David Kinjah, who is also Sossi brand ambassador.

In an article in the Daily Nation Froome described Kinjah as a persistent person who was difficult to spend only a few hours with and leave not feeling inspired or wanting to get on a bike and start riding. “For me, as a young teenager, that was the highlight and I thank God for having met Kinjah.  Going and staying with Kinjah and just to enjoy being on the bike with him while in training are the moments I will forever treasure,” said Froome.
