Van Garderen left battered and bruised after early crash

George Smith 12 Jul 2019 Team Education First rider hits the deck hard after crash in the bunch on Stage 7 Fresh from finishing eight minutes down on yesterday's first mountain stage, Tejay van Garderen (EF-Drapac) will have to complete the longest stage of this year’s Tour de France today with a ripped jersey and a nasty cut below his eye after falling face first just 7km into the stage following a touch of wheels near a road partition. The American managed to get back on his bike quickly but was in visible discomfort as he rode off. With the incident happening so early in the day, Van Garderen was able to rejoin the peloton after briefly speaking with the doctor’s car. Others involved in the crash, including former yellow jersey Mike Teunissen (Jumbo-Visma), seem to have escaped without any serious damage. See related Tour de France 2019: Dylan Teuns ...
