Three time Tour De France winner Froome was riding in France when he was allegedly rammed off the road by an impatient driver.

Chris Froome has been deliberately rammed off the road while out riding in France, according to a recent post the Tour De France champion posted to his personal Twitter account.

The 31 year old is training in preparation for his attempt to win the biggest race in the world for a third consecutive year following his victories in 2015 and 2016, as well as his initial victory in 2013.

Writing on his Twitter, Froome said: “Just got rammed on purpose by an impatient driver who followed me onto the pavement! Thankfully I'm okay. Bike totaled. Driver kept going!”

There has been no word yet on whether the driver has been apprehended, however, this is just one of many recent horror stories involving drivers having a total disgregard for human life due to sheer impatience.
