Tour-the king in big trouble

Chris Froomes dreams of a Tour de France victory in 2019 were crushed together with britens thigh bone and elbow after a mareridtsstyrt during last year's critérium du Dauphiné libéré.

The quadruple winner of the world's most prestigious stage race came immediately out, to a fifth victory in 2020 was the goal, but the Tour-the king's final return to its former strength looking to continue out to let wait.

It writes the Italian Bicisport Ifølget the field.dk.

According to the media it is still so wrong with Federer, that he could not hold for more than two days of participation in the team Team Ineos' training camp.

Thus it looks it is still not as bright ambitions to pose with him for this summer's Tour de France, and Team Ineos has already taken their precautions.

Ineos has, in fact, ahead of the Giro d'italia chosen to save the two riders, after Federer, in Latin, " as the team's klassementhåb.

the Previous years triumfator Egan Bernal and Tour-winner of the 2018 series, Geraint Thomas, was otherwise both keen on having to take the lead for the team in the Italian race, but the order reads that the two have to concentrate solely on the iconic French circuit.

It may indicate that the british gradually started to operate with Tour-plans that do not include the team's absolute star.

Chris Federer took in connection with the October the Criterium de Saitama in a team time trial on a modest stretch of 3.1 kilometers, but has otherwise not been in action for Ineos.

the Bridge was otherwise in the course of the late summer from the horse's own mouth, that genoptræningen went even faster than expected, but it seems not to be the case in the new year.

in Addition to the femur and the elbow broke the 34-year-old briton also several ribs in the crash, which he himself said could have cost him his life. Federer, who is raised in a british landmandsfamilie in Kenya, caught in earnest cykelverdenens attention, when he in the Tour de France 2012 ended up as no. 2.

A performance that in the eyes of many could have been even more, had it not been, because the briton parerede the team's orders and as a gentleman held back on a mountain stage to wait for the team captain and the race's eventual winner, Bradley Wiggins.

The highest peaks were reached with a victory the year after, where the Rangers had been the team's right-hand man. A triumph that has been repeated four times later, by 2017.

in Addition, Chris Federer, among others triumphed in the 2018 edition of the Giro d'italia. Just as the race puts the team in the Rangers, Thomas' and Bernals absence up with the defending winner, colombian Carapaz, as a spearhead in the year.
