Britain's four-times Tour de France victor Chris Froome will not start next month's race after sustaining multiple fractures, including a broken right femur, following a heavy crash in the Criterium du Dauphine on Wednesday, Team Ineos said. "It'll take quite a long time before he races again", Brailsford told French TV.
"It's obviously very gusty today, and it sounds like he took his hands off the bars to blow his nose and the wind's taken his front wheel and he's hit a wall at 60 kph or something like that".
"He's hit a wall at 60km an hour, something like that".
"Even though we all recognise the risks involved in our sport, it's always traumatic when a rider crashes and sustains serious injuries". Clearly, he won't be at the start of the Tour de France. "He's just going to get airlifted shortly to hospital, Saint-Etienne, maybe Lyon".
In a short statement on their Twitter account, Team Ineos said: "Team Ineos can confirm that Chris Froome crashed during a recon of stage four of the Criterium du Dauphine today".

The fourth stage of the Dauphine was overshadowed by an injury to Chris Froome during a recon ride that rules him out of the Tour de France.
Twelve months ago they were trying to ban him from the race over his unresolved salbutamol case, but director Christian Prudhomme admitted: "We hope he gets well soon".
He went on to further Tour de France wins in 2015, 2016 and 2017, he also won the 2017 Vuelta a Espana and the 2018 Giro d'Italia, making him the greatest Grand Tour rider of his generation.
