It was supposed to be a sprint in yesterday’s Giro – yep. It was supposed to be an uneventful day for the GC – nope. It was supposed to be a sprint finish in yesterday’s ATOC – yep. It was supposed to be a Sagan win – nope. Here are your final kilometres.
Andre Greipel‘s excellent sprint finish was overshadowed by a horrendous crash brought on by a spectator that left Daniele Colli with a severely broken arm and Alberto Contador with a dislocated shoulder. Colli is obviously out of the race (and for quite a while) while Contador will be starting today’s longest stage (at 264km) and take it day by day. WARNING: these highlights show Colli’s injuries – not for the squeamish.
And in horrendous weather, Mark Cavendish takes on Peter Sagan in Amgen Tour of California’s stage 5.
