7 km to the finish we felt that we were in great shape. Israeli Guy sagiv just completed his task magnificently - leading the almost full day breakaway. His teammates were fresh and ready in line for the sprint.

But then that horrifying sound of metal. “There was that rider in front of me that went down and I crashed,” described Kristian Sbaragli, revealing his frustration. Almost all of the team came down after him. Latvian Krists Neilands, Norwegian August Jensen, Canadian Guillaume Boivin and Belgian Ben Hermans. Jensen seemed to have got the worst of it, injuring his elbow. He was sent later to the local hospital for checkups and nobody is sure if he can start tomorrow.

Jensen and Neilands had x-rays this morning and it showed no problems, so all five crashees will start the next stage.

Anyway not the most auspicious of starts, but as long as any injuries don't affect the riders going forward, then it really doesn't mean much as the TTT and TT made GC a rather unrealistic target for Hermans.
