Bad crash at the Arrow. Thankfully for the team they had no injures, but others weren't so lucky.

A disastrous chain crash in the Flèche du Sud tour race we take part in Luxembourg has resulted in serious injuries yesterday and caused the cancelation of the stage.

Media reports from the scene documented half a dozen ambulances rushed to the scene and transporting riders with serious injuries to emergency rooms. There were reports of serious head injuries among the riders.

Our Namibian @dan craven told us it happened some 10 km into the stage. "It was a Dodgy descent . Steep, Off-camber corner with apparently oil on it. a stone wall on the outside of the corner... Massive pile up. All four of us where pretty much next to each other around 30th-40th position. I was last guy to make it past."

Our Mihkel Raim could not avoid the crash but landed softly and unharmed.

GC will likely be now between the four successful breakees from stage two.
