Road Rash at TdF

Carnage is really the only way to describe today’s Stage 6 (Epernay to Metz) of the Tour de France which was defined by a devastating crash with around 25km left to the line. The peleton was decimated, shaking up the general classification and leaving twisted frames and more than a little flesh across the tarmac with the lucky few, including the bulk of BMC and Team Sky (Cadel Evans, Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish amongst them) to forge ahead. However it was none of these that ultimately swept to victory, but rather, in a blaze of sprint prowess, points classification leader Peter Sagan (Liquigas-Cannondale) taking his third Stage win of this year’s Tour. Reports are still coming in as to how badly injured and, indeed, affected for overall time, those caught up in today’s incident were, but it will be miraculous if one or more withdrawals aren’t announced. Cyclo will keep you posted…
