LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s Chris Froome will not start next month’s Tour de France after crashing heavily in the Criterium du Dauphine on Wednesday, Team Ineos manager Dave Brailsford told the Independent newspaper.

“It’s a very serious accident. Clearly, he won’t be at the start of the Tour de France. It’ll take quite a long time before he races again,” Brailsford said.
