2019: the black year of Froome

The hard fall in Dauphiné that will prevent him from racing in the Tour de France is the last gray episode of Froome this season, where he had not yet managed to win.


Chris Froome will close a season without victories nine years later. The hard fall in Dauphiné, in which he suffered fractured femur, hip, elbow and ribs, will leave him without racing in the Tour de France and almost certainly in the remainder of the season 2019.

From this way Froome puts an end to season form a very gray season and a streak of at least eight seasons achieving at least a stage or general victory in a campaign marked by the startles and by the discrete results.

Froome debuted in 2019 in the Tour de Colombia and in the Fifth stage, road to La Union, said goodbye to the general after suffering two falls, but managed to finish the test. The next test of Froome was the Volta a Catalunya, where the Briton was very far from the favorites in the great days of mountain in Vallter 2,000 and Alp.

Froome relizó his best performance in the Tour of the Alps, being sixth in the first stage and fifth on the fourth day to finish eleventh in the general. Before competing in Dauphiné, where he was eighth in the general classification before leaving, Froome took the start in the Tour of Yorkshire, in the presentation of society of Ineos as sponsor , where he finished in thirteenth position in the general.
