In a short interview shown during the broadcast of the Team Ineos eRace on the Zwift indoor-riding platform on Sunday, four-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome said that his recovery from his crash during a recon ride at the 2019 Critérium du Dauphiné is "pretty much complete".

The Team Ineos leader has only raced five days so far this season ahead of cycling's coronavirus shutdown – at the shortened UAE Tour in February, where he finished 71st overall – but rode to sixth place in the team's Zwift eRace, drawing the praise of manager Dave Brailsford who called it "a hell of a ride from a guy who is coming back".
