more bad luck for Geraint Thomas with a crash in the time trial
Not sure about bad luck. Nice dry road and he just hit the bend too fast.
Only 21 sec off the lead.
Probably would have won. But hit the deck very hard.
He's an accident waiting to happen these days.
A bit like Cav!
I feel for him ! I get the feeling he's chomping at the bit too much,where Kwiatowski looked relaxed ?
Well, he did something wrong, as there was no other reason to fall!
Its probally a cunning plan by Brailsford,as shown by Froome in the giro.
G done well to get so close to Kwiatkowski's time even with a fall - How fast could have he gone?
I’ve just caught up this evening. Great time from G considering but what happened to Warren Barguil? Cunning tactical genius pre TdF or form gone?
As Brommers said 21 seconds is nowt really,hes up with most of the GC.You would have fancied him for the win if he could.of stayed upright.
Is it me or does he catch the white road markings just before the off? maybe that caused enough loss of traction for the wheel to go assuming he was pushing the envelope on the corner.
Which of course you are going to do i guess if you want a chance of winning?
I thought that at first but in the slo mo replay it looked like he lost traction at some point after the paint.
I've seen that crash four times and it doesn't get any better. Horrible. Geraint called it "slap out" and it really was. He almost risked whiplash the way he slapped into the ground like a fish.
Great win by Kwiato. And what about those Nibali and Bardet performances?
Gutted for G. Chin on floor when it happened. He’s had a bad run recently, but he was pushing the pace today and these things sadly happen.
