The Tour de France crash on Saturday was one of the worst seen during the race. A group of riders were swept into the back of a pile after one rider fell from the road, taking the rest of the pack with her. The road was blocked and medics rushed to the scene. Some riders scrambled back to catch the leaders, leaving others to be left behind. One rider, Denmark’s Emma Norsgaard, was taken to hospital with a broken collarbone. Last month, Italian Daniel Oss broke his neck in the same crash. The crash resulted in the dismounting of over half the field.
Sixteen riders were injured
A crash on the Tour de France has sent four of the race’s top cyclists to hospital. The four-time Tour de France winner, Chris Froome, suffered head trauma, as did Cyril Lemoine, who suffered a collapsed lung. Other riders who were injured include Marc Soler, Ben O’Connor, and Cyril Lemoine. Marc Soler suffered a fractured wrist while Jasha Sutterlin and Cyril Lemoine were both forced to withdraw from the race. Ben O’Connor, Cyril Lemoine, and Marc Hirschi suffered X-rays on their hips. Kris Sbaragli was also injured and had to get stitches in his lower lip.
The crash resulted in a massive pile-up in the fifth stage of the Tour de France Women. In all, more than half of the main peloton was wiped out. Video footage shows a crash in which the front riders lose speed and tip over, sending the rest of the peloton to the ground. The mass then crashes on top of one another and off the road, with one rider tipped onto the grass.
In addition to the riders who were injured in the crash, two spectators were killed and twenty people were injured. The crash site was also the scene of a fatal accident involving a police motorbike. A Saxo Bank rider, Jens Voigt, ended his Tour participation on Stage 16. The German rider hit a bump in the road and fell, appearing to lose grip of the handlebars. Voigt suffered a concussion and a fractured cheekbone.
The spectator who caused the massive pile-up may face legal action. The woman who caused the pile-up was holding a large cardboard sign in front of the peloton while looking directly at the TV cameras. Tony Martin was riding second wheel and hit the sign, which caused the crash. He was hit hard and suffered serious cuts. The spectator has been identified as the woman who was holding the sign. The crash left the tour in chaos and the spectator will be charged with negligent driving.
Half of the field fell off their bikes
A massive crash in Stage 5 of the Tour de France has injured 16 riders. Approximately half the field fell off their bikes, resulting in several cuts, scrapes and abrasions. After the crash, mechanics and directors raced to the scene. One Danish cyclist, Emma Norsgaard, was hospitalized after she fell off her bike. She suffered trauma to her neck, shoulder and cervical vertebra. Her team, Movistar, provided an update on her condition.
The crash happened 31 miles before the finish of the stage. The 109-mile stage is known as one of the flattest in the Tour. Several riders fell off their bikes, including the four-time Tour champion Chris Froome. Many riders, including some race commentators, were shaken by the crash and said that they will continue to monitor the race. Several riders on YouTube agreed with this assessment.
Some riders were so upset that they quit, and many of them were angry with the Tour boss. Some spectators yelled and screamed for revenge. A later stage of the Tour was moved to Menton, France. Ferdy Kubler was in second place at the time of the crash. He refused to wear the yellow jersey on the first day, but he did the same the next day and the following day.
Stage 15 was the toughest, with 2 hard climbs. Stage 15 saw the Italians finish together with Bobet and Ockers. After the stage, Kubler had a four-minute lead over the rest of the peloton and Ockers, Robic and Ockers. The Italian National Team was comprised of the best riders, and the Italian Cadets were composed of the lower riders. During the stage, a mob jumped on the peloton and attacked.
One rider was hospitalized
A crash during the Tour de France has left one rider in critical condition. The Italian cyclist Daniel Oss suffered fractured cervical vertebrae after colliding with a fan. Oss was able to complete Stage 5 of the race before seeking medical attention, and has now dropped out of this year’s competition. The incident has left the Tour looking to apologise to fans.
A crash during Stage 5 of the Tour de France’s Femmes race caused more than 30 riders to fall from their bicycles. The race was delayed for several minutes as riders untangled from each other. Most of the riders sustained minor injuries, but one rider was hospitalized. The medical crew from the Tour de France’s team car had to bandage the arm of Dutch rider Chantal van den Broek-Blaak.
The Tour de France is now a three-day race, and one rider was forced to withdraw due to injuries. Austrian cyclist Michael Gogl suffered a broken collarbone, pelvis, and iliac bone. He will undergo surgery in Belgium. There is no word yet on whether Gogl will start Stage 3 of the race. But the other injured riders are doing well. In fact, many of them will be racing the Tour de France.
Another rider also crashed during stage six. It’s unknown if he’ll survive or be forced to retire. The team’s website says that he suffered a fractured neck. Another rider, Michael Gogl, also abandoned the race after the crash. He had broken his pelvis and collarbone and will undergo surgery in Herentals, Belgium. Jack Haig also had to drop out of the race because of multiple abrasions. His arm required stitches.
One rider withdrew because of crash
The Tour de France crashed on Friday, causing several riders to withdraw from the race. The crash was on a relatively flat road, 31 miles from the end of the stage. A race commentator said the crash was not the fault of the riders, and it appeared that a number of cyclists were hurt. The crash caused major time losses for many riders, and the crash also affected a number of other riders, including four-time winner Chris Froome. A second crash left four riders unable to continue.
In the Tour de France crash, the Italian cyclist Daniel Oss, who was riding for Team TotalEnergies, crashed into several spectators and struck a fan filming the race. The impact knocked him off balance and caused him to crash into a fan filming the race with a mobile phone. Oss suffered a fractured cervical vertebra, requiring weeks of immobilization. The crash occurred during Stage 5 of the race.
The crash has also caused many injuries to other cyclists. A three-star general, Gilbert Versier, who has served in Afghanistan and Iraq, described the scene as reminiscent of a war zone. He said he saw tangled bikes and twisted vehicles, and he said it had impacted many of the riders inside the peloton. The crash has been blamed on a fan who had held a cardboard sign in front of the cyclists.

Fan allegedly caused crash by holding sign in front of cyclists
Tour de France officials are furious over a woman’s alleged role in causing a bike crash by holding a cardboard sign in front of the cyclists. The fan, who is not named, was holding a message for the cyclists, addressed to her grandparents, when she stepped into the path of the racers. While she was standing out in the middle of the course, the fan’s sign smacked one cyclist near the front of the pack. The cyclist then fell to the ground, causing further crashes.
After the incident, the woman allegedly responsible for the accident has handed herself in to French police. Prosecutors say the woman has a fragile personality and did not intend to cause an accident, but the Tour de France organizers plan to sue her. Despite the possibility of prison time for the spectator, her actions have caused online abuse. The Tour de France organizers are planning to sue the woman for the injuries she caused in the crash, which resulted in dozens of bikers being injured.
The crash occurred after a woman stepped out in front of the peloton, who failed to slow down. The crash resulted in a mass pile-up. As a result of the crash, at least 26 cyclists were injured, including eventual stage winner Julian Alaphilippe. The fan has fled the scene but the French authorities are reportedly hunting her down.
