The grave fall of Froome

The medical part gives little hope of seeing him in the Vuelta. At 34, his goal should be more focused on recovering well, without deadlines or hurry.


The Ineos is slapped since the petrochemicals landings as the main sponsor. And I do not mean the so little affectionate welcome that you have received from ecologists. I'm going to sports performance, which is what concerns us here. Seven days before Giro de Italia had to announce the loss of their leader, Egan Bernal, with a fractured clavicle in a training session. The team was beheaded to fight for the pink jersey, although the new situation allowed Pavel Sivakov, 22, to be presented in partnership with a ninth place and good performances in the mountains. Three weeks after the Tour of France the story has been repeated, but now with his great boss Chris Froome, preparing the assault to his fifth victory, to that sacred club of Anquetil, Hinault and Indurain, and with a more serious injury.

Froome suffered an accident on Wednesday during the reconnaissance of the Dauphiné time trial and broke a femur, an elbow and several ribs. The creepy medical part gives little hope to see him reappear in la Vuelta a España. At 34, his goal should be more focused on recovering well, without deadlines or hurry. Alejandro Valverde was able to do it in a similar situation. The African is not a champion to use, has too much propensión falls. We have seen him go to the ground until in the neutralized of the first stage of Grande Boucle. This time it has been quite serious. Now you will have to look to the future as the only challenge. The 2019 Tour is already history for him, but not for the powerful Ineos, which has in his ranks the defending champion, Geraint Thomas, and the champion of the future, Egan Bernal.
