Chris Froome, one of the favourites for the Giro d'Italia that is about to start in Israel, crashed during a recon ride of the opening time trial in Jerusalem.

The Team Sky rider was exploring the 9.7km route as he expects potentially big time gaps to be created by some of the GC contenders, when he fell and suffered visible skin injuries.

In a photo posted on Twitter by Belgian cycling reporter Renaat Schotte, Froome is seen to have torn his shorts and jersey, in addition to blood on his knee.

Froome is supposed to start his time trial at 16:41 local time (17:41 CET).
