Quite often as I'm driving around, I see some cyclist (usually a teenager) cycling with no hands, and I think "you idiot, if something happens you have no control of your bike".
And now 34 year old Chris Froome, whilst riding with no hands at approximately 40mph (and after being warned by his manager or trainer) got hit by a gust of wind, lost control of his bike and hit a wall, sustaining severe injuries.
Froome, you should be an example to other cyclists, but instead you act like a complete imbecile! A broken right femur, a broken hip, broken elbow and broken ribs? Serves you right you utter prat! Personally, I hope this fecks up your cycling career completely, it'll serve you right for ignoring GOOD advice. And I also hope your total stupidity teaches other cyclists not to act like an absolute **** on the road.
That last wish will never happen. Every day I go into town I see many examples of cyclists acting like complete A-holes. I wonder if any of them were named Chris Froome
