Man Down! TDF19-35
The Tour is filled with constant dangers. Thus far we have seen freak occurances, lapse of attention, and road furniture cause multiple crashes and delays. Today it was TeJan van Garderen (EF Education First) going down hard after hitting a traffic arrow atop a traffic island. He was quickly assisted by Alberto Bettiol and another of his teammates/ Fortunately, his injuries appear to be minor and he was soon back up and back into the peloton. He finished with the same time as the stage winner before being taken to hospital to get a thorough check out.
