Froome halts 2022 season preparations due to knee injury

CNA – Chris Froome’s (CNA pic below) preparations for the 2022 season have suffered a setback due to a knee injury, the four-times Tour de France champion said.

The Briton said scans had revealed damage to a tendon and he suggested the condition “flared up” due to his aggressive pre-season training routine.“

For the last 10 days or so I’ve been getting quite a lot of pain on the outside of my knee while I’m pedalling,” Froome said on YouTube.

“Unfortunately I think getting back into training these past couple of weeks I might have been a little bit too keen, pushing a little too much.
