FLORENCE, Italy (VN) — Grand Tour king Chris Froome (Sky) escaped with scrapes and bruises after falling on his left side training in South Africa for the upcoming 2018 season.
Froome fell Thursday during part of a 201.6-kilometer ride near his home in Johannesburg, South Africa. He posted a photograph on Instagram stories with blood on his left shoulder and hip.
A Team Sky spokesman said, “Chris is fine. He came off when he was out on the bike yesterday but it’s just a bit of road rash so it won’t affect his training at all.”
