Chris Froome Won't Wear Yellow Jersey Today As Mark Of Respect

Chris Froome Won't Wear Yellow Jersey Today As Mark Of Respect
By Barry Arnold Updated

Tour de France leader Chris Froome has said he won't be wearing the yellow jersey when stage seven begins today. He made the decision out of respect for injury cyclist Tony Martin.

Martin was race leader before crashing into Etixx-Quick-Step teammate and stage six leader Zdenek Stybar who then took out two further riders in the final kilometre of stage six. The collision left Martin with a broken collarbone, forcing him to abandon the 2015 edition of cycling's premiere race.

 

Froome took over as race leader due to Martin's retirement but in a gesture to the injured rider, he posted on his Twitter this morning that he won't be wearing the yellow jacket when the race recommences.

Day seven of the 2015 Tour de France begins today and takes place in Livarot.
