Pomtivy / Cologne –

Those first days at the Tour de France are not a lucky star. On the third stage on Monday, June 28th, there was another serious fall.

  • Tour de France: Another fall
  • Favorite Geraint Thomas and Tony Martin on the ground
  • Ineos captain treated for a long time

After the mass falls on the first stage of the Tour de France, Geraint Thomas (35, Great Britain) was the main hit this time.

The captain of the Ineaos team, winner of the Tour of France 2018, fell 144 kilometers before the finish in Pontivy.

Tour de France: Favorite Geraint Thomas fell

He held his shoulder and had to be treated for a long time by rushing doctors. Only after a few minutes could he get back on his bike. At the finish, further examinations will probably be necessary, if he can hold out in the saddle that long at all.

First, the Ineos captain drove with a helper from his own team for more than three minutes behind the peloton. Tony Martin (36, Jumbo-Visma) also fell in the fall. On the first stage he had a bad fall when he crashed into a cardboard sign of a fan. The mass fall afterwards caused four failures in the peloton.
