Former Olympic medalist and Tour de France cyclist Chris Boardman says the crashes that led Chris Froome to withdraw from this year's tour are "just part of cycling".
Boardman told ITV News:
"To be honest it's just part of cycling. Crashes happen and when we get weather conditions like that it happens a lot and it's just part of the cyclists pushing themselves to the absolute limit.
"Fortunately in cycling injuries are few and far between. For poor Chris Froome, three crashes in a row and it's just too much."
