Weeks before the peak of the 2019 racing season, road cyclist Chris Froome crashed into a wall on a training ride, sustaining several injuries, including a broken femur. “As an athlete, as a human being, when plans change and difficulties arise, that’s often where people throw in the towel and give up,” Froome says. He took a different approach. After months of physical therapy and rest, Froome fought his way back into competition shape for the 2021 season. In this episode of the Ride for More series from Hammerhead, Froome shares his story.
