Chris Froome setting sights on Tour de France

Chris Froome gives his first interview since his devastating crash at the Criterium du Dauphine.

He talks about the aftermath of the accident, his recovery and his goals for the future.

Froome's hopes of a record-equalling fifth Tour title this year were ended in violent fashion in June when he crashed heavily during a recon ride of the time trial route of the Dauphine, suffering multiple broken bones including a fractured neck, a fractured right femur, a broken hip and fractured ribs.

The 34-year-old said he has no recollection of the crash itself and has to rely on the accounts of those who saw it, but he can recall what came next.

"I think it really was one of those freak, freak accidents," Froome said in a video released by Team Ineos.
