BBC Sport - Road World Championships: Chris Froome happy to support Ben Swift

Froome happy to support Swift bid

Chris Froome says he is happy to support Great Britain team-mate Ben Swift's bid for gold at the Road World Championships in Spain.

The 2013 Tour de France winner tells BBC Sport's Jill Douglas he will enjoy "not having the pressure" of being the main rider in the men's road race.

Rain is expected to hamper riders on the 254.8km (158.33 mile) course in Ponferrada, northern Spain, which is made up of 14 laps of 18.2km.

Watch live BBC coverage of the men's road race on Sunday 28 September on the Red Button from 09:00-14:00 & 13:20-16:00 on BBC Two, with continuous coverage on the BBC Sport website.
