‘Another dark day for cycling’ – Critérium du Dauphiné peloton streets last massive crash

Midway through Wednesday afternoon, a battered and bruised Critérium du Dauphiné peloton made its way across the stage 5 finish line, still dealing with the aftermath of the horrific mass crash that had torn through the peloton just an hour earlier.

Cuts and bloodied elbows, hips and legs could be seen throughout the peloton during the neutralized 20 kilometer run-up to Saint Priest, riders in no hurry to complete the final part of what should have been an innocuous and probably boring transition stage.
