The crash came after an out-of-control Warren Barguil nudged Team Sky rider Geraint Thomas on a corner, sending him hurling into a telegraph pole at high speed. Needless to say, the footage speaks a lot louder than words can on this one:
Thankfully, reports from after the incident suggest that Thomas somehow managed to make it out unscatched, not only getting back up and finishing the stage, but doing so quick enough to secure he maintains his sixth overall position in the Tour.

Good work Thomas, and unlucky about the crash. We hope there's no further injuries and you'll be back to your best in the next few days!
