Tour 15 Stage 3: Recap

Chris Froome finished second to take the yellow jersey as Joaquim Rodríguez won the stage while two serious crashes caused the race to be temporarily stopped. The Tour video shows a high-velocity crash that took out a Cancellara, as well as Simon Gerrans, Dmitrii Kozonchuk, Tom Dumoulin, and William Bonnet. That’s many great riders out or hurt due to something as mundane as a touched wheel, something that happens could happen at Saturday shop ride. Two broken backs, broken collarbones, broken shoulders, broken wrists. The crash happens at 0.13. So what caused it? High winds, speed, and a touch of wheels.

on Twitter, I’m curating a collection of tweets, as the race happens and on this page for our mobile users.
