Tour of Poland and Milan San Remo today...

Froome not looking too good in the recent French race (Occitaine), suspect he's going to be dropped for TdF, which will suit everybody except him.

Horrific crash right on the finish line of the first stage of the Tour of Poland. Looked like Dylan Groenewegen (sp?) was at fault.

Horrible. That's a downhill sprint at about 80kph.
I don't think we will be seeing Groenewegen for a while.
Jakobsen hospitalised in a 'serious condition'.

that was the worst crash I've seen. DG at fault for the move, but downhill sprints encouraging such high speeds isn't clever. It was a messy sprint from all concerned to be honest. Been keeping an eye on Twitter, Jakobsen in a coma and the photographer/official has head and spinal injuries but is talking.

Sounds like Jakobsen is doing better today.

I would also question the flimsy/movable barriers that was used to funnel the pack into the finish line. Not sure if that is normal. Would seem anyone hitting them would go through them... I appreciate a solid/concrete barrier would send a cyclist back into the pack causing mayhem, but at least momentum is in the same direction and the ensuing pile-up could be ugly, but feel that would be better that hitting a stationary object... in this case an official/railway track. I think Indy car racing and NASCAR came to this conclusion many years ago.

But, yes... the speed due to downhill finish, and the pack did not help in this case.
