I smashed myself up in a horrific parachute accident in 2009. Almost died, a month in hospital, three months in a wheel chair. One leg is still shorter than the other. It took over a decade after that to achieve a 4wkg ftp. What you’ve done in such a short space of time is miraculous! Keep going Chris you’re inspiring so many people.
Looking forward to a full field of the big hitters this TDF

I was not necessarily a fan back to your winning days, but since your injury and you're latest videos, I discovered someone completely different from what we could read in the media and I must admit that I have become one of your biggest fans.
You're really Strong Mentally and I Wish you the best for the future, you will come back to the top.
Buena Chris! te esperamos en el Tour para que escribas una épica historia nuevamente!
Could still be one of the greatest comebacks in sports history, why would you give up on that.
So humble, how can you not like him. We love you Froome!

Froome is pure class, THE premier of his generation

Chris your story is just so motivational, I’m a 13 year old who loves cycling, and you motivate me everyday! Hopefully some day I’m in the World Tour just like you! Thank You!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
People who haven't gone through such a horrific accident will never understand the amount of strength it takes to even just get to the level where you're at now. You're a champion.

I’ve just came out of hospital after a car pulled out on me, I’m pretty busted up but no where near what happened to you so I can’t imagine the pain you were in let alone people who has never crashed on a bike. I wish I had 1% of your mental strength because I’m not sure I want to ride again! Absolute legend

Whenever someone says I cant do something it gives me greater motivation to prove them wrong. Watching you in the Giro 2018 stage 19 was one of the greatest sporting moments I ever saw - your determination will win through. Keep being bold!

You're a legend Chris, thanks for sharing this, really interesting.
I think we already know that hate says more about the "hater" than about the person being criticized. It's difficult to live with your own negativity - a popular way out is blindly calling others names 🤷‍♀️ Inspired by your work ethic Chris, thank you!

You're a massive inspiration. I remember you recalling one time when you were training in S Africa & because the motorways were dead flat you'd to grab onto the breaks to get some resistance - it's so refreshing to see how much you love cycling. You'll be back at the top fella - no doubt about it. Your channel on here is superb & it is a privilege to be able to watch it. Best wishes.

Although also a cyclist but coming from a different profession, it's been so inspiring to see your recovery journey. I particularly appreciated your reaction to others' comments regarding you being "done"... "those people clearly don't know me either as a person." If we were to indiscriminately listen to others (or even our own negative voices) we wouldn't push ourselves to our true capacity. Thank you for putting out this content.

Chris, love the regular doses of Froomey! Such a thrill to see you racing! That testing looked rough! Well done! 💪 If you like what you do, and you get paid for it, then the nay-sayers need to hush; bunch of jello pudding eating MFs.

Thanks for sharing so much - being vulnerable is not easy - we appreciate it
That testing looked brutal - the last time I saw movement in a seat like that was when I watched the Green Mile!!

Onwards and upwards!!
