peloton said:Doesn't bode too well, bummer
Alberto Contador (Tinkoff) again crashed after 60 km in stage 2 and was dejected on the finish line.
"I lost more time than I had hoped to lose. I suffered another crash, I hit the handlebars and I was hurt on the other side from yesterday. I must stay calm, not lose morale, I'm still standing but I have been really touched. The Tour has really started on the wrong footing. I'm not happy at all. It's cycling. I must see if I can make up some time in the Pyrenees and the Alps, see what I can do."
"I'm physically hampered. I cannot pedal as I would last as the result of crashes. The important thing is to keep my morale, not fall part, which is sometimes complicated. Both legs are very touched."
Not a pretty picture; both sides and legs now injured Still as long as he can continue I'm sure he will, he is a fighter. Hopefully his morale will pick up after some rest.
