    Sprinter, Hunter, crashes on the descent.

    Tbh, he did great to be in the peloton.

    Robbie Hunter goes @rse over teakettle into the ditch, limping around the place - Garmin car gives him new bike and sympathy then fecks off leaving him to his own devices

    Its amazing how much harder it is to focus on a descent when you're cooked from the preceding climb, I wonder if he'd gone a bit far into the red to hang on near the front? Hope he's OK anyway after his injuries earlier this season.

    Just passing the junction for the climb to the finish, hence all the crowds.
