Chris Froome denies reports of recovery setback


Chris Froome insists that his recovery “is going well” following reports that he had left a Team Ineos training camp early.

Italian cycling magazine Bicisport reported that Froome had left a training camp early and quoted sports director Dario Cioni as saying: “He is not well and who knows if he will recover?”

The four-time Tour de France champion posted a short message on social media to counter the reports.

“Hope that I can set this straight,” Froome wrote. “I was last at a training camp at the beginning of December. My recovery is going well and I will be heading to my next training camp on Thursday. Onward.”

Froome crashed into a wall while undertaking a recce of the individual time trial course at the Criterium di Dauphiné in June, sustaining injuries including a broken femur, elbow and ribs.

The Ineos rider is targeting a fofth victory at the Tour de France, with half an eye also on the Olympic Road Race in Tokyo.
