Craddock took to Twitter to express his gratitude about being able to walk away from the crash, before blaming a rival rider for the incident.
BIG thanks to the man upstairs for letting me walk away from this one.
To the Euskadi rider that thought it would be a bright idea to unload a bottle in the middle of the peloton while it’s raining – I think you owe this person a new windshield. https://t.co/V8zJInSLgx
