Three-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome has allegedly narrowly avoided being seriously injured or killed after an impatient motorist tried to run him off the road while riding.
The world-class cyclist posted a photo to Twitter this afternoon of his wrecked bike, which apparently got real fucked up when the driver in question decided to mount the footpath, compelled (we can only assume) by the boundless fury of someone who really, really had to piss but couldn't get home fast enough:
Just got rammed on purpose by an impatient driver who followed me onto the pavement! Thankfully I'm okay ?? Bike totaled. Driver kept going! pic.twitter.com/o7FT4iXsAo— Chris Froome (@chrisfroome) May 9, 2017
The tweet was sent from Beausoleil in the Alpes-Maritimes in southeastern France, where Team Sky (of which Froome is the leader) has their Cote d'Azur training base.
Froome took out the Tour de France in 2013, 2015, and 2016.
