Froome back in hospital after kitchen misadventure
Chris Froome's horror year continued this weekend with the four-time Tour de France champion again in hospital after cutting his thumb on a kitchen knife.
Froome ahead of schedule in recovery, says Brailsford
Chris Froome’s recovery from his horrific crash is “ahead of schedule”, leaving Team Ineos hopeful that he will be back at next year’s Tour de France seeking to regain his title.

He sustained multiple fractures including a broken femur, elbow and ribs after taking his hands off the bars to blow his nose while checking out the time trial course. The crash ruled out his tilt at a fifth Tour de France in July, the 2019 edition won by team mate Egan Bernal. 

But if anyone was going to push their recovery, it would be the four-times Tour de France champion who was back on the home trainer a month after leaving hospital.  

Froome hopes to compete at the Saitama Criterium in Japan on October 27.
