The four-time Tour de France victor was hospitalised and will miss July's race after a crash, which happened before the fourth stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné.

Team INEOS leader Dave Brailsford said the four-time champion suffered a suspected fractured femur in a crash at 40 miles per hour. "It'll take quite a long time before he races again", Brailsford added to French television.

"I am awaiting information and transport to get to where he is and as soon as we have any information we will update you".

"It's clear he'll take no part in the Tour", Brailsford told French television while four time Tour de France victor Froome was being treated at the scene in a parked ambulance.

Brailsford said Froome had been speeding downhill with teammate Wout Poels when a gust of wind blew him off track, making him hit a wall. "He'll be helicoptered to either Lyon or Saint-Etienne hospital within a few minutes", said the Welshman. "We will provide a further update in due course".

Froome was eighth in the overall classification after three stages of the eight-day race, just 24 seconds behind leader Dylan Teuns.

"We're going to do all we can to support Chris in his bid to win a fifth Tour, to cement his place in history and join the exclusive club of five-time winners".

Dave Brailsford, Ineos team principal, praised Froome's preparation for an attempt at winning his fifth Tour de France title - something he will now be prevented from trying to achieve this year. "We have to try and do great things, but we also have other riders to manage, too, like Geraint and Egan".
