Froome fell heavily and at high-speed during a recon of the stage 4 time trial around Roanne and after several hours of roadside treatment was airlifted to hospital in Saint Etienne for further treatment. It's not yet clear if surgery is required but what's clear is that Froome's hopes of winning a fifth Tour de France are over.
We hear from a shocked and upset Dave Brailsford, and Wout Poels, who was with Frooome when the crash occurred, and GC riders Tom Dumoulin and Richie Porte.
As throughout this year's Dauphiné, expert analysis is provided by Philippa York.
