Britain's Chris Froome is in intensive care and "not in great shape" after suffering serious multiple fractures in a high-speed crash

Just heard about this on the radio. That sounds nasty. Smiley Sad

Risky business in the top cycling game.
Familiarity breeds contempt.
Strange thing to do at 40mph with those ultra lightweight bikes.
Hope he will be ok intensive care is no joke.

Hitting a brick wall at 60km is going to be really bad, I was gutted for him when I heard this last night. 

He will not be able to take part in la Tour Dr France for some years, and even if he does I think he's lost his form as shown last year with Geraint.

He will be devastated I would think. 

But on the plus side, he's incredibly disciplined and determined and he may surprise us all.

I wish him the very best. @masterluke

Going off the speed, it was the equivalent of falling off the roof of a 40 feet tall building i.e. higher than the eaves of a typical 2 up 2 down. Hope he recovers.

That's dreadful. Luckily I haven't sustained the seriousness of those injuries coming off my bike at such speeds although one occasion the road surface became a skin grater....
