Refresh: Massive Crash Neutralizes Tour de France Stage 14, Several Riders Receiving Treatment

Tour de France: Multiple Riders Injured in Massive Crash, Race Neutralized

Annemasse, France – In a dramatic turn of events, a massive crash during stage 14 of the Tour de France has caused chaos and led to the neutralization of the race. Several riders, including Antonio Pedrero (Movistar), Fred Wright (Bahrain Victorious), Frederik Frison (Lotto-Dstny), and Adrien Petit (Intermarché-Circus-Wanty), are receiving treatment at the roadside.

The crash occurred at the back of the peloton, resulting in a scene of carnage with riders scattered across the road and grass verge. Ambulances quickly arrived at the scene to attend to the injured riders, and spare bikes were distributed to those in need.

Due to the severity of the crash and the number of riders affected, the race organizers made the decision to neutralize the race. With all race ambulances attending to the injured riders, it would be impossible to continue racing.

This incident has disrupted the rhythm of the race, with attacks and strategies temporarily put on hold. It was expected to be a thrilling stage, but the crash has overshadowed the competitive aspect of the day.

In related news, Lotto-Dstny manager Stéphane Heulot has strongly criticized Caleb Ewan after the Australian rider abandoned the Tour de France. Heulot expressed his frustration and stated, “I don’t know how to handle this sort of character.”

As the riders continue to roll through the neutral zone and out of Annemasse, the outcome of stage 14 remains uncertain. The crash has caused significant delays and injuries among the peloton, leaving the race in disarray. Riders will need to regroup and refocus after this unfortunate incident.

The Tour de France remains a highly anticipated event, with fans eagerly following the battle for the yellow jersey. Danish rider Jonas Vingegaard currently leads the race, but his margin over Tadej Pogačar has been reduced. Pogačar continues to chip away at Vingegaard’s lead, and the competition between the two remains fierce.

As the race resumes, the riders will face another challenging day in the mountains. Stage 14 promises to be an exciting and unpredictable leg of the Tour de France, as riders navigate the demanding terrain and strive to overcome the setbacks caused by the crash.
