Chris Froome says recovery from horror injury 'almost complete'
LONDON: four times Tour de France champion Chris Froome He has said that his recovery from the terror accident that almost ended his career is quite complete.
The 34-year-old man suffered multiple fractures and spent months in rehab after a gust of wind flung him against a wall at 50 kilometers per hour during a reconnaissance at the Criterium du Dauphine in June of last year.
He only fully returned to the saddle in February on the UAE Tour, which was interrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"The recovery is going really well - I'd go as far as saying it's pretty much complete," Froome told the Team Ineos YouTube channel after taking part in a virtual race alongside fellow Tour de France champions Geraint Thomas and Egan Bernal.
I'm still doing some exercises off the bike to strengthen the injured right side, but I'm back to normal training and that's going really well.
Froome is currently in emergency shutdown in the south of France while waiting for the return of the races, although an assault on a fifth Tour title has to wait.
I'm keeping very busy and obviously I'm training as much as I can in the turbo coach, added Froome.
