 I've just watched today's stage.
 A major crash in the finishing kms took out a bunch of big names, mostly among Deceuninck - Quick Step and Sky.


A DQS rider was the first man down which took out Mas and Alaphillipe, who looked quite seriously injured and did not re-mount. Could mean a spell off the bike for the Frenchman; his classics campaign now in question.
 I think Castroviejo (because of his injuries) must have been the Sky rider directly behind, who flew over his bike and I think Geraint Thomas (lost 5 minutes) went off into the ditch. Elissonde finished over 9 minutes back with Kwiatkowski, who didn't look good either. He's not yet appeared in the results. Another dozen riders still missing.

Edit: Alaphillipe was last to finish , he lost over 11 minutes.
