Sky's Chris Froome says that the Tour de France "could've gone either way" for him after he crashed today on the wet and slick descent heading to the Le Bettex summit finish on stage 19.

Froome recovered and defended himself on the summit finish below Mont Blanc. He crossed the line with blood showing through his yellow leader's jersey, but maintained the famous top by 4-11 over stage winner Romain Bardet (Ag2r La Mondiale).
