Re: 2019 Tour de France, stage 1: Bruxelles > Brussel, 194,5
The great attrition of the TDF begins on stage 1 -- two crashes, lots of pain. Hoping Fuglsang can continue. I do remember a TDF some years ago where Andy Schleck got banged up on an early stage. Cancellara called for the peloton to hold up . . . and they did. Was that the 2010 TDF where Andy was declared winner after Contador's DQ? So, once in a while, a rider is able to recover from a bad crash and still do well.
