According to the BBC today, Chris Froome will not be participating this in month’s World Championships in Richmond, Virginia, as a result of an injury he sustained during last week’s Vuelta a Espana.

The British rider crashed during stage 11 of the race, and subsequently abandoned the following day after it was discovered that he had fractured his foot. 

Team Sky director, David Brailsford told the BBC that the rider will be off his bike “for a couple of weeks.” His participation “looks unlikely”, as “the fracture will take a while to heal.”

Froome had previously been named on the British long list for the Worlds, and was expected to ride the team time trial with Team Sky.
