She tweeted: "Chris is in surgery at the moment to fix the multiple fractures. He is now being airlifted to St Etienne University Hospital for further treatment", Team INEOS doctor Richard Usher said in the statement.

Sir Dave Brailsford, the Team Ineos principal, said that Froome's front wheel had been caught by a gust of wind while he took one hand off the bars to blow his nose.

"Even though we all recognise the risks involved in our sport, it's always traumatic when a rider crashes and sustains serious injuries. It'll take quite a long time before he races again", Brailsford said.

Brailsford later added in the statement that the team's primary focus was ensuring that Froome gets the best care. He hit the wall at 60km/h and fractured his leg, elbow and ribs.

"One of our big strengths on this team is coming together in hard moments, and we will ensure we do everything possible to support Chris and his family", he said.
