Chris Froome in Intensive care after crash in training.

Cyclist Chris Froome is undergoing emergency surgery after hitting a wall at high speed during training. I hope he will be OK although it doesn't sound great at the moment.

Re: Chris Froome in Intensive care after crash in training.

The four-time Tour de France champion, 34, has suffered a fractured right femur, a broken hip, a fractured elbow and fractured ribs and lost consciousness following the crash.

"He's not in great shape. There are crashes and bad crashes and this was a bad crash."
Ouch - that's a lot of injuries .....

hope he makes a full recovery, not something he will every forget. We just never really do know what is around the corner do we.

I have stood and watched the Tour of Britain go past and the speed is ridiculous. It's all over in about twenty seconds.

It was a windy day and news report last night said he lost control hitting a wall. Poor sod.
