I won a bronze medal in the last Olympics in London and it would be absolutely incredible to win another one this year.The 54.5-kilometer (34-mile) mens time trial in Rio, which features four climbs, is on Aug. 10.Froome traveled to Rio during the winter to preview the Olympic circuit and has changed his preparations this year to maintain peak form until the games.Four years ago, Froomes former teammate Bradley Wiggins managed to secure a Tour-Olympics double, triumphing in the London 2012 Games time trial ahead of German Tony Martin and Froome after posting the first British win at the Tour in July.Froomes hopes of victory in Rio have been boosted by Dumoulins injury at the Tour on Friday. The Dutchman pulled out of the Tour after fracturing his wrist and might not recover in time for the Olympics.Froome said he will take some days off to recover before competing in a one-day race in London next weekend.Then its off to Rio.Well be there about a week before the race to start training a bit more again, Froome said.
