    Mad Wurtz down :-(

    Big crash about 30-40 riders back. Some Sky were down as well, looked like Thomas.

    Magnus Cort too

    Thomas was down, but he got up. Not sure Mads Wurtz was getting back on a bike. Magnus Cort was also down.

    Renaat surprised how bad the conditions are.

    Lampaert and GvA caught behind amongst many others.

    So split in the peloton, BMC trying to bring it back together for GVA.

    Wurz getting a stretcher & neck brace (though he was sitting earlier)

    Tony Martin leading a small group at the front

  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 53,415 Lives Here
    Wind is picking up.


    Means it’s drier. But also tail cross ;)
  • Maybe he is expecting iNaesen long wait now. Bad luck for Oliver on the cobbles this week
  • No_Ta_DoctorNo_Ta_Doctor Posts: 10,203
    Thomas has abandoned.

    Terpstra bought all teammates a Rolex to say thanks


    Good on him. Shows he recognises their contribution and that he’s a team player
  • kingstoniankingstonian Posts: 2,420
    Thomas has abandoned.


    He’s an accident magnet. Shame, I would have liked to see him give it some beans today
  • Didn`t think conditions look too bad.

    Too ill to cycle , so it`s me and Amstel watching the whole thing.

    That last crash looked nasty.
    Trek,,,, too cool for school ,, apparently

    Just back from my now traditional (as of last year) pre-Roubaix Cheshire cobbles ride, mine were very muddy.

    Has anything exciting happened?
  • kingstoniankingstonian Posts: 2,420
    Break brought back to 3mins 45 secs, time gap dropping steadily
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 53,415 Lives Here
    Can’t help but notice all 7 QS boys in the first 15
  • No_Ta_DoctorNo_Ta_Doctor Posts: 10,203
    The lad Mads Pedersen doing a superb job so far of keeping up near the front

    Crash took Roelandts and a teammate of BMC out.

    GvA and Maes had a bit of a chase.

    Sky have been crash happy and Thomas is out.

    Olivera has a broken collarbone.
  • No_Ta_DoctorNo_Ta_Doctor Posts: 10,203
    Mads Wurtz Schmidtt has nothing broken, after being taken away on a stretcher.
