Team Ineos cyclist Chris Froome would like to return to actions following his crash in the Criterium du Dauphine in June, before the turn of the calendar year.
Froome has been rushed to hospital and underwent operation later suffering a fractured vertebrae, leg, knee and knee, in addition to losing four pints of blood after crashing into wall.
However, that the four-time Tour de France champion is”on the path to healing” and hopes to return to biking before January.
Froome told The Telegraph:”It’d be good to be in a position to perform some of these post-season events that I typically do in the off-season.
“Only to get into the pro scene again. It would good if I could do some thing.
“I believe a lot of this goes back to fundamentals. I will have to train harder than I’ve ever trained before to return there again.
“I am grateful to be alive. I am thankful to be on the road I’m thankful that I am in a position to recover. Now I’m going to give it everything.”
The 34-year-old admitted when he woke up at hospitalhe wished to know the extent of his injuries so he could start plotting a return to get back to his motorcycle.
Froome said:”I simply wanted news on what the harms were and what they intended for me going forward. I had been hoping with all of my will that this was not the conclusion of my profession.”
“As soon as I was woken up the next morning following surgery, I mean, I knew it was serious. I had to know it was reparable, that I would be able to make a complete recovery, although I woke up in ICU.
“And the doctor said that within minutes. From there on, I accepted what happened and everything was about moving ahead.”???
Froome confronted another setback in early September if he cut his thumb had to get surgery to place the tendon in his left hand together.
He revealed he endured”no lasting damage” into the tendon and will now begin preparing to get a fifth Tour de France title next summer.
Froome included:”As for your Tour, a fifth Tour title proved to be a huge deal on the planet. But going for a title was a career-ending crash, so that could be even bigger.
“There were lots of those who came out after the wreck and said’He’s done. He will never win the next Tour.’ They simply spur me on.”??????
