What Happened to Chris Froome?
Chris Froome's health troubles held him back from winning the Tour de France title again as in 2019, he was hospitalized due to a fractured right femur, fractured elbow and fractured ribs due to a crash into a wall during training.
It took Froome a full year to recover and in 2021 he attempted to participate in the Tour de France again but sustained injuries during the opening stages. Continuing on, he would finish 133rd overall.
It seems like Froome's brush with injuries has not stopped at all, as he is injured again. During January, Froome revealed that he damaged a tendon on his knee while pre-season training.
Citing his own eagerness to train and pushing himself too hard as the reason for this injury. Froome's bad luck continues, as it is looking like he is sure to miss any major events this year as well.
