21 riders injured in Tour de France opening stage crashes



Two major crashes on the 198km opening stage of the 2021 Tour de France from Brest to Landerneau have injured at least 21 riders, with Ignatas Konovalovas (Groupama-FDJ) suffering a head trauma, and Cyril Lemoine (B&B Hotels-KTM) with four broken ribs, a moderate pneumothorax and a head wound as the most injured and out of the race.

Marc Soler (Movistar) finished the stage just in front of the broomwagon and his team confirmed later that he fractured both elbows – the end of the radius on both arms and the ulna of his left arm and is out of the race.
