That second crash really hurt some guys.

Chris Froome (Israel Start-Up Nation): Trauma to the hip and chest. Taken for scans. According to Froome’s tweet, “No fractures thankfully but there’s a lot of swelling & bruising to my left leg and thorax. I’m going to try get a good night’s rest & see how things look in the morning before making any decisions with the medical team.”

The B&B rider was the guy who caused it I think? The one that clipped his front wheel?

But yes without the crashes I think we'd have seen a more organised sprint finish. Most of the proper sprinters had to chase hard to get back to the front a few times. Colbrelli in particular who I think might have been able to have a go yesterday.

Konovalovas and Lemoine DNF, but Soler finishing with multiple fractures in his arms is ridiculous.

That was the first major crash. That was lower speed, the second one was at 60-70kph and caused a lot more injuries.

Yeah the first crash only really hurt 1 person properly since it was low speed going up a climb.

The 2nd crash was the one that did all the damage.
