    FFSake, tour outcome likely affected by some tool with a camera. It was shaping up so nicely with Aru, Porte and Contador too. I hope Contador can continue but as he climbs with such a throw of the bike you would think an injured arm could be a factor. Terrible injury too. A big telephoto lens…clown. Well done greipel and what an amazing lead out by Hansen.

      To be fair the camera guy was not leaning out that far at all.
      Feel sorry for Colli, his arm is not meant to bend that way!

        He leant out far enough to take out a rider, that’s too far. When are there going to be double barriers at the sprints?

        • Arfy

          As true as that is, they were leaning out so they could get a clear shot without other spectators in the way. It’s easy to blame the spectator, but really it’s a lack of responsibility by the organisers and the UCI. It’s not the first time spectators have been involved in incidents like this, so it reflects really poorly on the organisers and the UCI that it happens again. Agree on the double barriers.

      Cant help but wonder if the change in barrier type where the accident occurred had an effect too

    Bad day for the Giro when things were really going well.
    I hope Colli is fixed up okay although there is always a danger when you race that close to the barrier.Of course the camera clown should not have been poking that lens over the barrier.
    Its going to be touch and go for Alberto,Dislocated shoulders can be tricky to fix.If he has to step off the bike I guess Roman at 22 secs will have to take over for him.
    Great leadout and sprint by Lotto guys.
    Tomorrow brings some more climbs so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

    I didn’t think Hendo was going to slow down! What a machine!
