Cyclist Chris Froome Wife Michelle Cound Froome

Michelle Cound aka Michelle Froome

Meet Michelle Froome, formerly known as Michelle Cound; Chris Froome’s pretty wife who was born in Wales and raised in South Africa, she is also a retired IT tech and amateur cycling photographer.

The girl is following her man all the way. If he has a race, there she is, pending of the weather:

it’s awesome, weather has been perfect except for a bit of a thunderstorm this morning! I’m sure you’ll love it :))

Paris Saturday *fingers crossed* *touching wood*

And missing him too…It is obvious she is so into him.

I’d like to have a chat with him…

Also, that he is an incredible specimen of a human being… Yes I knew that too

The one that looks to be in amazing condition, super lean with a build ideal for tour racing? Or the one on the left? :-\

The couple got engaged early this year.

She posted:

Best day ever yesterday…. I said yes!

Couldn’t be happier!

Michelle said:

I love that he hasn’t changed one bit since I first met him. He’s incredibly down to earth, unassuming with a heart of gold.

I was blown away. I didn’t expect it at all – Chris didn’t either. He doesn’t see himself as a time-trial specialist, so with riders like [four-times World time trial champion Fabian Cancellara there, he would have hoped to have got top five. He certainly didn’t expect to podium.

These two seem to be having a blast together. We hope the best for both and wish the best of lucks to him so he can beat his own personal record on this tour. Vive Chris Froome! Oh-la-la!
