Team Ineos riders Chris Froome would like to return prior to the turn of this calendar year to actions, following his horrific crash in the Criterium du Dauphine at June.
Froome failed surgery after losing four pints of blood, as well as suffering elbow, leg, a fractured vertebrae and ribs and was rushed to hospital .
However, that the four-time Tour de France champion is”on the path to recovery” and expects to return to competitive cycling before January.
Froome told The Telegraph:”It’d be great to be able to perform a few of the post-season events which I typically do in the off-season.
“Just to get back into the pro landscape again. It would good if I could do something before January.
“I believe a lot of it goes back to fundamentals. I’m going to have to train harder than I have ever trained before to get back there again.
“I am grateful to be living. I am thankful to be on the path to recovery, I am grateful that I am ready to recuperate. Now I will give it everything.”
The 34-year-old admitted as soon as he woke up in hospitalhe wished to understand the extent of his injuries so he could begin plotting a return to get back to his bike.
Froome explained:”I just wanted news on what the harms were and what they intended for me going forward. I was hoping with all of my will that this was not the conclusion of my profession.”
“When I was woken up the next morning following surgery, I mean, I knew it was serious. I woke up in ICU, but I needed to understand that it was reparable, I would have the ability to make a full recovery.
“And the doctor explained within moments. From there on, I accepted what happened and everything was about going forward.”???
Froome confronted another setback if he needed to have surgery to place the tendon on his left hand and severely cut on his hands.
He disclosed he suffered”no lasting harm” to the tendon and will now start preparing to get a fifth Tour de France title .
Froome included:”As for the Tour, a fifth Tour title was a big deal in itself. But going for a name was a career-ending crash, so that will be even larger.
“There were loads of folks who came out after the crash and said’He’s done. He will never win another Tour.’ They simply spur me .”??????
