Sounds like a terrible crash, hopefully he can recover okay.

Not good. He'll be out for a fair while. And he's 34, so who knows how well he'll come back.
Data says he came off at 54 kph.

I've never warmed to Froome, I don't particularly like him as a cyclist, but that's an awful crash and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Not good news at all.

So many provisional results...

I wonder whether he'd be happy with it, or be like Andy Schleck after Alberto Contador was stripped of the 2010 TdF title and feel that he hasn't really won it because the result was decided in court, not on the road.
