Re: Man Down - Injury Reports 2019

This Froome stuff should probably be placed into its own thread, but the details just keep getting worse.

Chris Froome suffered fractures to his sternum and the C7 neck vertebrae, as well as his right femur, elbow and ribs, during his crash at the Critérium du Dauphiné, meaning he could be in hospital for up to six weeks and need six months to fully recover.

Team Inoes boss Dave Brailsford confirmed that Froome also suffered some 'internal damage’, with these injuries apparently worrying doctors more than the sternum and vertebrae fractures.

Giorgio Gresta, the surgeon who operated on Froome’s elbow, told La Gazzetta dello Sport that the four-time Tour de France winner lost close to two litres of blood but suggested that Froome can recover from all his injuries.
