Names & Faces: Chris Froome, Norman Xiong

Chris Froome

The British cyclist has asked fans at the Tour de France, which begins Saturday, to let him race in peace — even if they doubt the recent ruling that cleared him of doping allegations. The four-time Tour champion has been riding with a cloud over his head after a urine sample taken during the Spanish Vuelta in September showed a concentration of the asthma drug salbutamol that was twice the permitted level. On Monday, the International Cycling Union said the result did not represent an adverse finding.
